Kindergarten is way to early to broach this subject, we should all be in unanimous agreement there. It blows my mind that's not the case.

That is just insane. A kindergarten kid has no idea about sexuality at that age . It would have been more productive and related for the children to have read a book about little johny becoming batman.
if you didn't know you were a boy or a girl at that age it's a shame they didn't have a similar teacher to teach you.
this thread again giving yet more examples how braindead ats users are and how they're prepared to jump up and down angrily over a subject they know nothing of.

What do you suggest we do with children with gender dysphoria?
And what drastic changes are you talking about? Wearing clothes of the opposite sexes is not a drastic change.

Yet, I was not transgender nor did I have gender dysphoria.
If you weren't comparing yourself to a child with gender dysphoria, then why did you make that statement?
a reply to: NightSkyeB4Dawn Of course you didn't have gender dysphoria. You weren't disgusted with your female body parts, waiting for the penis to grow in. You didn't spend every night praying for God to give you the penis you knew you should have been born with. You weren't terrified of puberty making those female parts even more female - permanently. Gender dysphoria and being a tomboy are not the same things at all.
"Go full force"? Who is doing that?
No matter how much you try to encourage children with gender identity to embrace their physical sexes, it will not change
And if they aren't gender dysphoric but simply acting out other fantasies, and parents force them to continue in order to live out parental wish fulfillment, it also borders on child abuse.
How many truly gender dysphoric children are there? And how many are being coached/encouraged? And how many kids are being caught up in issue they should not have to be caught up in as a result because it shouldn't be part of their lives because everyone thinks they have to be taught about it?
Like I said above the Parent and the teacher. They went full force by encouraging a child that is un mentally developed to come out as transgender to the world. Their is no easy going back for that child now if they change their mind and next year they want to become catwomen, like most 5 year old do.
That may be the case , but give that child a chance to determine that for themselves when they have the mental capacity to do so.
