While I am aware of the age of the OP, I still think my thoughts are relevant on this topic.
The thing that angered me the most about some of the replies is accusing the parents of child abuse. If researching a fully recognised medical
condition, and coming up with the course of action they believe is best for their child is abuse, then we are truly lost as a species.
The parents did the absolute right thing IMO. It is a horrible affliction, and by postponing puberty, the child can be in a much better position when
they decide whether to transition or not. My friend would not be in the hell she is in if only she had parents who tried to do the right thing by her
when she was a child. Instead, she was forced to bury her secret, forced to live a lie due to the ignorance of everyone, family, friends, peers, and
the like. Now THAT is abuse.
So please get your bigoted heads out of your backsides and at least attempt to empathise, if not fully research what you are clearly ignorant of.
