If your child told you they were trans and wanted to transition medically and surgically would you accept that, suggest they wait or push back harder?

By Charlie Fisk If you read the article, you will know the answer. It eliminates the debate. I can see from reading these reponses that they haven't read the article. It's quite clear that you can't allow children to make life-changing medical decisions because they aren't developed enough mentally to do that. The answer is to support youur children and help them become of age, at that point, they can begin to assess how they feel after puberty and adolescence has passed. If they wish to outwardly identify as the opposite sex, there is nothing wrong with that, but irreversible surgery and the introduction of dangerous drug therapies before development is just irresponsible....and possibly devastating. Again, read the article. Make your comments afterward.

By Kirby Liberty Harris Uhm, it could be referring to their desire to do so and the part of transitioning where they do everything but the surgery, not the surgery itself It can even mean adult children.
