Parental Damage

I support a parents right to raise their children how they see fit. If they want them to go to church or be home schooled, play sports or sit and read books, that’s the parents business, not the public’s or government’s. There is a point where we need to say “wait a second, you are damaging your children!!!” and I know that. I think this is such a case.

I think it’s safe to say that if children can’t consent to their own medical treatment or sign their own permission slips (or buy white out for some odd reason), because they are not capable of making their own decisions, than it’s also probably not good to let them decide what gender they are at the age of 11. Setting aside my feelings about transgender persons (gender really isn’t a social construct people, its a physical one. Gender roles may be social, but not gender itself), I have a feeling that this kid is going to have problems. At 16 or 17 perhaps there is a case to be made for making decisions like this, obviously 18 is where we legally put the line, but in some parts of the world one can vote at 16 or 17 and even here in Maine one can vote in primaries at 17 if one will be 18 by the general election.

But 11? Outside of what this article says, it does appear true that this “treatment” can significantly increase the risks of serious health problems including cancer and a number of developmental issues.

Sometimes you see a person and you think “only a mother could cause that much damage”. In this case the poor kid has two “moms”, I’m not going to be surprised to find out they have caused double the typical amount of damage. With organizations such as MADD constantly claiming that the brain is not fully developed until age 21 or older, I have to wonder if that’s wrong and in the case of these two women, theirs have never developed.

    It always amazes me that some of the same folks who get offended that a parent would impose religious beliefs on a child have no problem with them imposing gender modification. The former is a bit more flexible than the latter.

    I’m completely with you on this. The transgender community has managed to make a mental illness into a minority group.

    I do not use the term mental illness lightly. A neurological disorder may be a better description, but it is still listed in the DSM IV and will be in the DSM V, as the activists attempts to pick the experts who write that section in the next edition failed.
