. . . we're allowing children to take hormones to change their gender?
Hormone blockers only delay puberty and the physical changes it causes.
Postponed until legal adulthood, so any further decisions will be made as an adult.
Studies show there are no adverse effects to hormone blockers.
Ignorance never helps in a debate.
What Parents Should Know About Giving Hormones To Trans Kids
When Transgender Kids Transition, Medical Risks are Both Known and Unknown
The blockers can cause someone to become sterile. They cause a decrease in bone density. Their effect on brain development isn't even known.
Ignorance never helps, eh?
there is NO way you can tell me that in a family of four ALL of them have this marker. Impossible. What I see are two transgender parents who did not tell their kids it is ok to be themselves and now they emulate mom and dad. Is anything wrong with that now, no, but in the future it will cause some heavy confusion.
Shirley said: “The whole family is in transition.” The family is made up of Daniel and his fiancée, Shirley, along with their two children, Mason and Joshua. Coming out has been a bonding experience for the family.
Daniel spoke about how positive the step had been for him and his family, saying: “It feels like you’re getting to live for the first time. “My children are getting to be who they’ve always wanted to be.”
So this families business is there own but...other peoples families are not?
His children are getting to be who they want to be? So they were both reassigned at birth to the wrong sex? See how some of these statements do not add up?

Was I making a big deal out of it or simply showing concern? In my post I start by stating I do not have a problem with a person identifying as someone else. It happens. I understand that. Friends and relatives who are gay or have transitioned and no problem with them.
However, this story does not add up.
