have you read the stories of parents who have dealt with this for years....in total frustration insisting their "child" wear the correct" clothes and play with the "correct toys" YEARS of therapy sessions and these children still insist that that they are the wrong sex.......but guiding them gently but firmly will work??? talk about denial.....it is not a whim.....if they are SO easily influenced why do they not give in when the parents spent years making them play with the corrects toys and wear the "Right clothes"..... they wouldn't need years of therapy the therapy would work in a short amount of time..but we all know that is not true

Do not shame him. I never said to do that. Guide him gently but firmly. It is your responsibility as a parent to help your child through the process of gender identification. It is a confusing world we find ourselves in today. Parents cannot drop this ball now.



My mother spent years in denial.

She wanted me to wear sweet little dresses and play with dolls.

I liked wearing pants and playing with action figures.

Still never wanted to be a boy though or made the mistake of thinking I was one.

tbh if y'all are so worried about the children, you should be more worried about alcohol marketing.

Dude, they're selling sex toys for little kids.

Let the free market decide?

These people should be exterminated like bugs. Only form of genocide I can get behind.

Pedocide, if you will.

Free market. SMH


Come on hardly. Lets face anything is a sex toy if you are inclined. Trust me the 'ass box" in the ED is real thing and you would be amazed at what people can and will do. But the items in the website which I have check out, can also be said to be prosthetic's. So a fake breast for a cancer victim is a sex toy? What about a fake testicle?

I'm curious about the genocide or pedocide you refer too. Whom exactly? The trans children? Their parents? The person who runs the website? People who support their rights? Who exactly are 'These" people so I can frame a more coherent response.

Got a pretty good point right there.

You're joking right? No kid needs a fake penis to wear under their pants to support their trans decision. Not even an adult needs it. And if a kid is even thinking for a second he/she might be trans, then that is an even bigger issue. Kids only know what that is after someone tells them and being a kid at such a young age is not the time to be "curious" about their sexuality. let alone wearing a fake penis under their pants.

Hmmm, don't know if you are wrong or right. I was directing the comment that they were selling sex toys, not about the psychological aspects of affirming a gender choice etc. However, based on my experience working with trans children and their parents its not a learned behavior, its not something they googled and decided to try out in real cases.

Hence my comment relating this to ADHD. Just as a general pediatric MD should not diagnose nor treat ADHD, rather a Peds Neurologist that specialized in it should, the same with trans issues.

and Again look to my comment on page 2. The marketplace will decide if this is something that is needed or not. My guess is that this website will die simply because there is not enough demand for its products. However, given the general level of angst displayed in just this thread they may get an undue level of free advertising thus keeping their business afloat.

Speaking of adhd, do you remember when there was an explosion of cases, all of a sudden all these kids were being diagnosed, then it turned out some doctors were invested in ritelin and we're handing the drugs out like candy?

This is child abuse! Pure and simple. They need to send "mom" to how to be a woman school. The dads needs his/their man card revoked. Insanity appears to be winning.

Yeah thats why I made that comparison. in that case well meaning Pediatricians and General practice MD's followed revised guidelines that had alot of nuance and required actual observations and evidence collection before diagnosing. You coupled this with overcrowded public schools and district psychologists who in effect were trying to create well behaved zombies in said overcrowded classroom, and well meaning parents who get that advice and want to do well by their children and you created a perfect storm. A whole generation on ritalin.

I see that here too. In the case of trans children, you need several specialist to confirm the diagnosis then you proceed IMHO.

Given the vitriol in the thread among some, what exactly is so threatening about a kid with gender identity issues?

I believe the kids that genuinely have issues should get the help they need, my concern comes from abuse from A medical system that is for profit and if course parents that are so utterly clueless they end up doing more harm than good.

I agree with you 100% we saw this play out with ADHD, an should proceed but proceed with caution
