Progress? Leftists Now Want to Prevent Puberty for Transgender Pre-Teens...
For an ideology that likes to accuse other's of being anti-science, leftists sure do like to throw science out the window when it comes to transgenderism (see Believe in Biology? Canada To Sentence ‘Anti-Trans’ Speakers to Prison… and Idiot Parents Support ‘Transgender’ Change… For a 7 Year Old Child). But now they want to block biology until teens can "decide" what gender they want to be?
Full-blown puberty is irreversible, but for transgender children, it’s no longer inevitable. By taking a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist, secretion of the sex hormones can be stopped and the onset, so that the body does not develop secondary sex characteristics. This has been done safely for decades to suppress sex hormones in children who develop too early, a condition known as "precocious puberty."
Data on the use of these blockers is scarce, but in the past decade or so, it’s believed thousands of transgender youth and their families have chosen to suppress puberty to give adolescents a time-out while they figure out the next step in their development.
So when do you start giving them drugs? Junior High? Start in grade school, to be on the safe side? Why not dose their baby formula until they're old enough?
The problem here should be a rather obvious one, but I'm going to point it out anyway. Human beings are either male or female. They either have male reproductive parts, along with male hormones, or female reproductive parts, with female hormones. When children reach a certain age, they hit puberty, and those hormones, for lack of a better term here, "kick it into high gear," and bodies change.
Gender dysphoria is a mental disorder. Puberty is a normal process for human development. One of these things is not like the other.
Yet some SJW parents, who should be arrested for child abuse in my opinion, are suggesting a natural process for human development be interrupted, with drugs, so they're mentally disordered child can "figure out a plan."
If this isn't child abuse, I'm not sure what is. Stalling, interrupting, altering a natural human process with drugs, to cater to a mental disorder, is tragic. It's abuse. Human beings are male and female. The end. I'm sorry if you're transgender and confused, but to wreck your body in order for it to comply with your mind, which is suffering through a disorder, is the height of crazy.
I frequently use the "The Emperor Has No Clothes" analogy to describe such societal delusions. That's because we're looking at complete illogical crazy dead in the face. And we're being told we're intolerant for calling it crazy. You and I, but opting out of this party of stupid, are called intolerant bigots who hate.
Wrong. We care very much. I care about what happens to these children who's bodies have been prevented from developing in a healthy, normal way. All for their mental disorder their parents refuse to address. For political points.
