This campaign will help offset medical and legal fees for a brave young man named Richard Anumene, who in his own words was coerced into “gender reassignment surgery” by his doctors and therapists at the Kaiser Permanente Gender Pathways Clinic in San Francisco, CA. The law firm of Watkins & Letofsky, LLP has filed a lawsuit on behalf of RICHARD ANUMENE against THE PERMANENTE MEDICAL GROUP, INC (KAISER PERMANENTE) for damages for Medical Malpractice and Battery. This case was filed on March 22, 2022.

Richard Anumene had a documented history of sexual and physical abuse as a child. This abuse led to confusion for Richard, and he began to question his sexual identity as a young man. Schizophrenia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bi-Polar Disorder and Sever Depression were his diagnoses at the time of the mutilation and castration by Kaiser.

Clinicians from the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Gender Pathways clinic told Richard his mental chaos was driven by gender dysphoria. Swiftly following this diagnosis came feminizing hormones, and male to female mutilation and castration surgery (otherwise called “gender reassignment surgery” by Kaiser) to “affirm” Richard’s social transition from male to female. All this occurring during the covid lockdowns. Clinicians from the Kaiser Permanente Gender Pathway Clinic made no effort to assess or treat Richard’s multiple, serious mental health diseases, or the fact that he lacked the mental capacity to understand that the surgery would result in permanent sterility.

Richard is completely devastated by the reality that he is now sterile and will never be able to have a family of his own.  He regrets the trust he placed in his doctors and therapists. Richard’s suffering and complications from feminization hormones and multiple surgeries are numerous and lifelong.
