Struggling to keep the story straight at ECU

East Carolina University, UNC, and Duke have all been at the center of a controversy about the provision of sex change services to minors.  East Carolina has been the most vocal of the three in responding to the negative publicity. Unfortunately, they appear to be having trouble — as we say in politics — “staying ON message.”

Initially, we heard from Michael Waldrum, dean of ECU’s medical school, who denied the existence of ANY “gender-affirming” (aka sex change) procedures — surgical or otherwise — on minors at ECU.
