Then in a 2015 editorial, she criticized the prevalence of childhood gender transitions. Dr. Soh advised parents and doctors alike to wait until a child reaches cognitive maturity.

Likewise, her essay referenced gender non-conforming aspects of her childhood. This essay argued that “a social transition back to one’s original gender role can be an emotionally difficult experience.” Similarly, she has also written against anti-conversion therapy laws. She believes that such laws conflate sexual orientation and gender identity and prevent legitimate therapeutic counseling for individuals with gender dysphoria.

Furthermore, she opposed the 2015 decision to close Toronto’s gender identity clinic. This clinic was famous for beginning treatment after or during puberty in most cases. The following year, she wrote an editorial criticizing CBC News. This was because CBC News canceled its airing of a British documentary that featured Zucker.
