And what if your child has symptoms of depression and anxiety because they are told they have to conform to what gender you insist they be? What if they threaten to self mutilate, or kill themselves? What if they start to withdraw from their friends, and stop participating in school activities or stop showing an interest in anything anymore?
What then? You “lovingly” slap the crap out of them and tell them to snap out of it?
It also lacks even a smidgen of empathy and understanding for the families dealing with a transgender child or the children in question themselves.
Are you from the school of “slap the crap out of them and tell them to snap out of it”, like some of the other posters here?
We don't have to imagine that scenario. This group of "professionals" are the same bunch that got two whole generations of kids hooked on pharmaceutical drugs because the education system is so broken that normal kids are drugged for being active, normal kids. They are the ones giving kindergarten kids uppers/downers meant for adults. Is it any wonder that the product of those kids who were drugged for 12 or more years is that they are now producing confused, possibly brain-damaged children? Who knows what those "Keep them quiet and docile" drugs (which had never ever ever been tested on children) did to the brains of kids who were force-fed chemicals.
I'd also venture to say if that were the case, some of you might take the time to gain a better understanding of this condition beyond what you've read here from a rabid anti-trans activist and show a little empathy.

There is no trans lobby or trans agenda!
Medical professionals and many enlightened people have a humanistic and ethical approach to transgender related issues. Because a girl is an athlete or a boy takes to balett does not change their gender identity.
The alt right seems to fear that of which they do not understand.
I can guarantee that those who are applauding the OP have never been friends with someone who is trans.
So you're a professional qualified to diagnose mental health issues or is this just an opinion or a feeling?
Information released January 24th, 2019 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey of 131,901 high school students in ten different states, 1.8% identified as transgender and of this cohort, 35% reported attempting suicide within the past year
If your kid truly is trans and you ignore that and force-feed your own ideologies and deny necessary health care, you really are going to f# them up for sure and that is indeed a very dangerous approach.

I decided to watch a few videos regarding raising a trans child to try to understand what the dynamic is that causes a parent to totally embrace their child's supposed transgenderism....
