This article isn't even from the US. This is about some place in London.
Your bias is showing. So is your lack of attention to detail.
Bruce Jenner and Diane Sawyer could benefit from a history lesson. I know, because I suffered through “sex change” surgery and lived as a woman for eight years. The surgery fixed nothing—it only masked and exacerbated deeper psychological problems. The beginnings of the transgender movement have gotten lost today in the push for transgender rights, acceptance, and tolerance. If more people were aware of the dark and troubled history of sex-reassignment surgery, perhaps we wouldn’t be so quick to push people toward it. The setting for the first transgender surgeries (mostly male-to-female) was in university-based clinics, starting in the 1950s and progressing through the 1960s and the 1970s. When the researchers tallied the results and found no objective proof that it was successful—and, in fact, evidence that it was harmful—the universities stopped offering sex-reassignment surgery. Since then, private surgeons have stepped in to take their place. Without any scrutiny or accountability for their results, their practices have grown, leaving shame, regret, and suicide in their wake.
The story starts with the infamous Dr. Alfred Kinsey, a biologist and sexologist whose legacy endures today. Kinsey believed that all sex acts were legitimate—including pedophilia, bestiality, sadomasochism, incest, adultery, prostitution, and group sex. He authorized despicable experiments on infants and toddlers to gather information to justify his view that children of any age enjoyed having sex. Kinsey advocated the normalization of pedophilia and lobbied against laws that would protect innocent children and punish sexual predators. Transsexualism was added to Kinsey’s repertoire when he was presented with the case of an effeminate boy who wanted to become a girl. Kinsey consulted an acquaintance of his, an endocrinologist by the name of Dr. Harry Benjamin. Transvestites, men who dressed as women, were well-known. Kinsey and Benjamin saw this as an opportunity to change a transvestite physically, way beyond dress and make-up. Kinsey and Benjamin became professional collaborators in the first case of what Benjamin would later call “transsexualism.”
As Kinsey's biographer Gathorne-Hardy told The New York Times: "In a sort of way he was ruthless. And one could almost go as far as to say immoral, at least not conventionally moral. If someone had sexual information that was germane, Kinsey would use it." Between 1938 and his death in 1956, Kinsey and his research team conducted more than 17,000 face-to-face interviews with a diverse group of people — college students, prostitutes, and even prison inmates — about their sexual experiences. His most notorious subject, interviewed in 1944, was a sexual omnivore, "whose history of sexual encounters with men, women, boys, girls, animals and family members took 17 hours to record," according to The New York Times. Not only did Kinsey fail to report this man, but it was also later revealed that he pretended that ample data taken from this source — including extensive documentation of the sexual response of young boys — came from multiple sources. Sexual Behavior In Human Male - Kinsey ReportWiki Media The results of his interviews were published in two separate volumes that together make up the "Kinsey Reports" —"Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" in 1948 followed by "Sexual Behavior in the Human Female" in 1953.

Hmmm... The world population is 7 billion and hasn't EVER decreased from one year to the next during the modern era, methinks your post is just whining hyperbole.
I'm pretty sure the world can stand to cut a few people out of the gene pool.

You assume that children are idiots. Adults really need to stop doing that about children. Children are a LOT smarter than most adults give them credit for.
I did a lot of dumb stuff when I was a kid that I wish I could take back.. Imagine wanting to take gender reassignment back.

Is that so ?
I guess some people just don't want to face the reality of the current state of the world.
Every single day MILLIONS of people are kept from being born, and out right killed, but hey who cares right ?
The world we live in is where 12 years take drugs because they think they should have, or the parents think they should been born different.
Oh so like the parents in the op. Want to play GOD eh ?
This is ironic coming from you. The world is changing and here you are trying to keep things the same. Repress the gays and transgenders so you can sleep comfortable at night.
Every day there are tons of kids without parents that are waiting for adoption but never get any. How about taking care of those kids before worrying about potential humans going unborn?
So? How does that negatively affect you?
No one is playing god,

Im all for the right to change sex. You guys make this sound like an epidemic. No these kids and families have to under lots of tests and see a shrink to determin if they are capable to coup with the change.
How ever i do have a problem with when they start this transition. From what i understand is tgat you cant get the surgery untill they are 18 and proven mentally fit to do so. So what is the rush? Wait till they are 16. If they aer old enough to drive a guided missile down the road then they should be able to make the choice of gender change then[/quot
that's the whole point of the blockers, until they get older then they can decide

Oh nice that some hyperbole. Feel free to quote ANYWHERE 'I' am suppossedl trying to repress gays, and transgenders.
I sleep quite well at nite TYVM.
Just think of out of those MILLIONS just happen to be gays, and transgenders eh?
When a 12 YEAR OLD gets to take drugs for 'gender' that negatively effects us all.
Especially so when they can't smoke, or drink, and my personal favorite buy a gun on their own.
A 12 YEAR OLD.

Has the whole world gone mad? What is going on? This is not a rhetorical question....really, what is this all about?! Why are they pushing this?
The brain is not even fully developed until the mid 20's!
Some studies have shown that 70%-80% of kids who had expressed transgendered feelings "spontaneously lost those feelings" over time.
Dr Carmichael said it was 'better' for children not to have gone through puberty before 'transitioning'. But she added: 'You are asking someone aged as young as 11 to make big decisions about their adult life and identity. We have to be very careful to keep options open.'
