Lesbians give 11 year old son hormone blockers
Okay this lesbian crap is getting out of hand. What 2 consenting adults decide in their own home, is up to them, but when it involves interfering with a child’s life, someone has to draw the line. We now have a lesbian couple in California that have decided to give their 11 year old son, (and that is questionable, as 2 women can’t have children), hormone blockers that delay the onset of puberty — so that he can have more time to decide exactly who he, or she, is.
Supporters of the couple say the Hormone Blocking Therapy has only minor side effects and is appropriate for a child who is unsure of his gender. “This is definitely a changing landscape for transgender youth,” said Joel Baum, director of education and training for Gender Spectrum, a California-based non-profit group. “This is about giving kids and their families the opportunity to make the right decision.” Fox News
Critics though are saying that an 11 year old isn’t old enough to make a life decisions about changing their gender, and parents should not be encouraging them. They say it’s too soon to tell what the side effects of the treatments may be, and they say Tommy’s parents, Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel, are irresponsible for seeking them and allowing them to be administered. Critics are even going to the point as to call this child abuse. Dr. Paul McHugh, professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University said,
“It is a disorder of the mind. Not a disorder of the body. Dealing with it in this way is not dealing with the problem that truly exists. “We shouldn’t be mucking around with nature. We can’t assume what the outcome will be,” McHugh said.
There can also be a medical risk such as Potential long-term effects can include other abnormalities of hormones, vascular complications and even potential cancer. Meanwhile, Tommy’s parents, Moreno and Lobel, say they support their child and feel this is the best way for him to find an answer to a question he’s been asking all his life. Thomas began saying he was a girl when he was 3 years old, his parents said in an interview with the Daily Mail.
According to the parents, the boy has mental problems, and as a result spoke through sign language. Therefore, they claim he said he was a girl. So we have a child developmentally disabled, yet the so called sane parents say he knows his own mind? But they also say a psychiatrist had diagnosed a gender identity disorder. I’m skeptical of this whole story.
After much deliberation with family and therapists, the child began taking hormone blockers a few months ago. The medication, which must be changed once a year, was implanted in the boy’s upper left arm. While chemicals are giving children like Tommy more time to decide which side of the fence they belong on, some critics say that some children who question their identity at a very young age might change their mind when they start adolescence.
“Most transgender patients will say that they knew at 6 years old. But what we don’t know is how many others had those thoughts and feelings that went away once they hit puberty,” said Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel, a professor at Boston University and a plastic surgeon who specializes in facial feminization operations for transgender men.
Walt Heyer, whose book “Paper Genders” details his own experience transitioning from a man to a woman and back again, agreed. “The blockers should NOT be introduced to a child,” Heyer said. “If they are going to make a transition, they should wait to do so when they reach 18 to 20 years old. When you start the therapy at that age you are not dealing with the fact that the mind is not fully developed.”
Heyer also cited a Dutch study that said 61 percent of individuals who desire a gender change are found to have secondary psychiatric disorders, such as depression or dissociative disorder, which he suffered from.
Other critics asked whether Tommy’s same-sex parents may be unknowingly influencing his questions about his gender, and perhaps so, as they want a girl who goes for the lifestyle they do…..
