According to Riittakerttu Kaltialia, a chief psychiatrist in the Department of Adolescent Psychiatry at Tampere University Hospital, an influential 2011 study conducted by Dutch clinicians contributed to the widespread acceptance of transgender ideology.
The study suggests that gender-confused children, mostly boys, who used puberty blockers showed positive outcomes. As a result, the study became a global "gold standard" in the field. The psychiatrist also mentioned the rise of an "activist movement" promoting mutilation as a "human right."
These may have influenced the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health in Finland to seek the establishment of a national pediatric gender program for two hospitals already providing gender identity services for adults.
"Medical organizations are supposed to transcend politics in favor of upholding standards that protect patients," Kaltiala said. "When medical professionals start saying they have one answer that applies everywhere, or that they have a cure for all of life’s pains, that should be a warning to us all that something has gone very wrong."

As a response to this growing and disturbing trend, Kaltiala penned a letter published by the Free Press in which she discussed how most teenagers with gender dysphoria were frequently influenced by online content, peer pressure or advice from LGBT groups. She also examined the adverse effects of hormonal and surgical treatments on teenagers.
