This really is about mainstreaming mental illness rather than treating the disorders without sterilizing the patient and hacking off body parts.
Doctors and parents who foster transgenderism on young children, including teenagers, should be prosecuted and jailed. Doctors should have their medical licenses revoked.
But the number of teenagers going through gender reassignment has been growing amid wider acceptance of transgender identity, more parental comfort with the treatment and the emergence of a number of willing practitioners. Now advocates like Empire State Pride Agenda are fighting for coverage at an earlier age, beginning with hormone blockers at the onset of puberty, saying it is more seamless for a teenage boy to transition to becoming an adult woman, for example, if he does not first become a full-bodied man.
“Some of these women are passing, but barely, when they transition at 40 or 50,” said Dr. Irene Sills, an endocrinologist who just retired from a busy practice in the Syracuse area treating transgender children, including Kat. “At 16 or 17, you are going to have such an easier life with this.”
It's all about "passing," about committing FRAUD to would-be partners, especially straight men. Once puberty hits, then these guys--and most of these disturbed people are males--the bone structure is altered and much larger, a dead giveaway a "transwoman" is in fact a guy. Can't have that. Best to butcher these kids at a young age with puberty blockers and hormones before hacking off body parts to be a female impersonator but NEVER a woman.
Of course no trans ever passes as a woman at all. There is always something that gives the charade away.
Despicable the "newspaper of record" continues with its pro-trans propaganda.
