Watching the Louis Theroux documentary on Transgender children in America you have to image that at least one of these kids will end up piss off with their parents for whatever reason and end up hating them and suing them for changing their gender as children and probably bring it to the courts where kids start coming forward and claiming they didn't know at the age they agreed with their parents that they were transgender and that they were just kids and said it for any number of possibilities and the courts decide to ban people transitioning until they're 18...
Only in America
Only in America, my arse. A friend was telling me they're teaching a class in Dublin that has four or five kids in it who are apparently undecided as to what gender they are. Monkey* see monkey do. Back in my day, I think the fad may have been goths.
(I'm not saying I don't believe that people being born the wrong gender is a thing, but I am highly sceptical that that is the case for all of the children in that one class.)
*I have no idea what colour skin the children have, lest anyone is looking to take further offence.
then it will be a good thing. for 2 reasons.
1. one who wishes to transition needs to be mature enough and old enough to know and deal with the complexities of such a change. in my view a child is none of those and while they may know they are in the wrong body they aren't in a position to make such a complex decisian.
2. it will remove the cases of parents pushing for transition when the child may not actually be transgender at all. a girl playing with boys toys and boys playing with girls toys for example doesn't equal transgender.

Child abuse to put an underage through this.
I've tried twice to read the mega sentence in one go now, I blame you for that!
Hopefully it will cause more Judges to rule as this Judge did -
Boy 'living life entirely as a girl' removed from mother's care by Judge
No. There are trans children here in Ireland too.
Children do noy physically transition at any stage. Decisions for children to live as the opposite gender they were assigned at birth are not made by pushy parents at a whim. They are made with support from medical professionals.
I think my point was though that eventually a child will grow up and bring their parents to court and people will see how dangerous it is allowing children to transition and there will be a stop put to it so why not do that now...
Slightly more sober tonight, slightly.
What about hormone blockers? They are prescribed to young kids and seem to be presented as reversible and totally harmless. In reality, there is evidence to show that they are damaging long term. A lawsuit has already been taken against the manufacturer by women who were given the drug to stop their precocious puberty and are now suffering the effects.
