Parents need to speak to their kids more. Not the school or media and definitely not the LGBTQ community.

It's called pressure. We all had 'peer' pressure when we were growing up, it's the same thing with this and you know it, you just don't like to admit it, just like the media don't like to admit it.

Look... if you were a child and you had never heard of 'sex change dysphoria' or 'transgender', you would never in your chils mind be thinking about it.

The kids need Therapy... not sex change clinics.


I pity the foos that worship groupthink.

Misery loves company, the self-obsessed think not as others, and the selfish care not for others.

In a few years when they all wake up and realize it's not as "trendy" as it used to be, they're gonna regret such a move.


I agree.

Children under 10 just don't know what they're doing. Their parents are also to blame I might add. Surely they should speak to their children about these issues (well, they have to now anyway).

This was all stuff children never had to worry about or think about.


Exactly... All we worried about was how much time we had to play before our moms called us home for supper. I don't know of any tomboys that didn't turn into fine women as they got older either.

You are right. Setting your kid up for failure by forcing them to be what you want them to be will end in disaster.

Apart from, you know, all the ones who had to grow up in the wrong body and ended up adults with PTSD if they were lucky and just another suicide or murder statistic in one of the most vulnerable demographic groups known to society if they weren't so lucky.


Loving parents should have reached out to these kids, and would have if they'd taken notice that their own child was sick or depressed.

Even if the source isn't reliable do you not see young kids being swayed to change gender identity based on the influence of their parents and greed of doctors.

Just because a boy is feminine doesn't mean he's a girl or vise versa. Just let these kids find themselves and decide when theyre adult making their own decisions. Parents can do harm when they are trying to do good for their children.

Or they're overly progressive morons trying to be different or trendy at the expense of their children

I see it's transgender hysteria day on ATS again.



Let's see, tabloid rag prints hysterically misleading headline. Actual article doesn't actually say what the OP thinks it says.

The Oxford University endocrinologist said: “Many of these children have very mild gender dysphoria and are not very happy in their gender but puberty is a very confusing time. Others are clearly trapped in the wrong body.


So it's a tiny number of kids, 1100 out of the entire country, who get sent to a specialist unit for some mild counselling and therapy.

OH NOES! LGBT CONSPIRACY TO DESTROY THE ENTIRE FABRIC OF SOCIETY!


You sound intolerant to differing opinions. How do you feel about therapy for kids who feel like they're "trapped in the wrong body?"

All the kisses and hugs ever given in the history of the human race could not alleviate someone's constant and inescapable despair and confusion at having been born in the wrong body. You're making some seriously callous assumptions, there.

That's a far cry from letting a kid think they're trapped in the wrong body. This would have been laughed off by both parties 6 years ago.

I didn't say anything about forcing them to be what you want. I said setting them up for failure is letting them decide on their own that they wanna be a boy instead of a girl and vice versa. They commit suicide because they're picked on, they commit suicide because they can't be what they want to be, they commit suicide because they didn't make the right choice, they commit suicide because they're miserable of life. Let me know when you figure out the common denominator there.

Exactly. Like I said earlier, I grew up with a lot of tomboys and they're fine women today. My fiance was a tomboy when she was a kid as well. Feminine dudes usually grow out of that stage, too.

How do you know it's not environmental?

Do the Trans fish and frogs also need therapy?

I firmly believe in supporting your children's decisions on what they want to do, however, your job as a parent is also not letting them fail. When they come to you and tell you they're not happy with who they are or what sex they are (however they approach with that), it's YOUR job to tell them the dangers and long term effects of such a desire and/or change. Anytime I had some over the top idea that my parents refused to set me up for failure on, they'd tell me that if I wanted to do something like that then I can wait until I'm 18. That went smoking, drinking, tattoos, etc. For big things like a motorcycle or sports car or new truck, they'd tell me that I can go get a job and start paying for that myself. Until then, it was their rules and whatever they got me.

How do you feel about therapy for those who think they're gay or in the wrong body?

No, they need to go to the frog and fish doctor and have the procedures reversed.

Right. So you have no idea, haven't thought about it beyond your own limited informed opinion, and don't know any solutions...

Next.

The surgeons should lose their license and they themselves need therapy for allowing this. But it is business as usual.

On a slight side note, I heard today that Paloma Faith is bringing up her offspring as gender neutral.

I wonder how much if this stuff is just to appear PC and "right on" as it were. I don't rule out the fact that there is the odd case here and there of being born as the "wrong" sex but is it as widespread as we're being led to believe?

When you are borm, you don't get "neutral" junk; you're a boy or a girl. If, later in life, you feel diferently to the evidence between your legs then by all means seek whatever help you need but seeing this stuff about prepubescents makes be think parenting has issues.
