In Texas, the case of James Younger points to a disturbing trend in the treatment of gender-confused youth

His mother pulling him by one arm, his father pulling him by the other, seven-year-old James Younger, dressed in a skirt, looks distressed and confused. His mom, Anne Georgulas, wins the struggle and rests him on her hip. His dad, Jeffrey Younger, calls 911. “Why?” asks James. “She was supposed to give me custody,” his father replies. A video recording of this incident, which occurred on March 8, 2018, at James’s elementary-school open house, was played before a jury in Texas last month. It is a larger symbol of how children such as James Younger have become pawns in the transgender debate.

The Younger case has gained much media attention, in the U.S. and beyond. The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the BBC all seem to cast the father as the villain, in particular for his refusal to agree that his child is transgender. Rolling Stone opines that the Younger story has become a “terrifying right-wing talking point.” Vox is worried about Republican state legislators’ trying to introduce bills prohibiting chemical and surgical interference with the sexual development of children who say they’re transgender, and “what [this] could mean for families nationwide” when “legislators want to have a say in whether Luna Younger should be allowed to socially transition.” For the Left, the Younger story is a tale of backwards attitudes victimizing a child.

In truth, it’s progressive attitudes that are victimizing the child, and James Younger is not an outlier. There are many more just like him, and some in even more dire straits. For years, the medical and legal establishments have been ignoring evidence and bending their standards to please transgender activists, some of whom are clinicians. There are three clinical approaches to helping children who exhibit symptoms of gender confusion. One involves a range of talk therapies and psychotherapies to address suspected underlying causes. A second, called “watchful waiting,” allows the child’s development to unfold as it will, which may mean that he chooses to transition later or not at all.

Then there is a third option — informed by an ideology according to which it is possible for a child to be “born in the wrong body.” In this option, clinical activists recommend a drastic response when a child expresses confusion about gender. First, parents should tell the child, however young, that he truly is the sex he identifies with. Second, parents should consider delaying his puberty through off-label uses of drugs that can have serious (and largely unstudied) side effects. Third, parents should consider giving their child the puberty experience of the opposite sex, through cross-sex hormonal injections and gels (which result in sterility). Finally, parents should consider greenlighting the surgical removal of their child’s reproductive organs.

Since there are no objective tests to confirm a transgender diagnosis, all of this is arbitrary and dependent on a child’s changeable feelings. To make aggressive treatment more acceptable, its advocates have come up with a media-friendly euphemism, “gender affirmation.” If it’s affirming, activists say, it’s also kindness, love, acceptance, and support. The opposite, trying to help a child feel more comfortable with his body, is a rejection: abuse, hatred, “transphobia,” or “conversion therapy” likely to lead to child suicide. This is a lie — a lie designed to obscure a critical truth: that neither a child, nor his parents on his behalf, can truly consent to experimental, life-altering, and irreversible treatments for which there is no evidentiary support.

More to read on the link and this really shows how society has been duped into allowing gay conversion therapy into law
Again I supoort anyone with gender dysphoria, but now affirming feelings is not clinical science and its leading to poor medical dsecisions on childre, which is inherantly wrong when in the najority of cases, these children would simple grow up to realise they are gay

I imagine in a few decades after this change in therapy and how we are see loads of people detranisition by the time their brains fully develope by 25. We will have seen a mass of people in dispair at how society therapists have decided. That the best thing to do was to medicate and mutilate their bodies

This may work well for the very few people that become transsexual who again I support also, but to place all children on this path from a young age, is beyond contempt. When we should allow kids to reach adults and then and only then conscent to such medical treatment. Its unethical that people are deciding to use a procedure that affirms sterotypes as if to diagnose children with a condition. When before the majority would have grown out of.

Give this 20 years and there will be a national outcry on this

And it doesn't help that the US is turning this into a "far right versus far left" battle...

I would place those bastards who are demanding the right to 'transition' youngsters, who in the main won't understand what their parents, "clinicians" and a few loopy activists are trying to force on them --  instead of waiting until they reach adulthood --   into the same class as previously debunked groups such as 'rebirthers', anti-vaxxers, 'faith healers', homeopaths, 'conversion therapy', exorcisms..

Legislators need to collectively grow a spine, and begin outlawing a few of the more outlandish "therapies" and quackeries.

Sorry mate but you are wrong. As many people are on both the left and right here that have major concerns

Apart from that I agree with thre rest of your points

Sadly its going to take in a few decades and litterly countless law suits from victims. For people to finally wake up

It's in the 3rd paragraph that the O/P's author points out that it's some media outlets (including Rolling Stone -- which is a far cry these days from the 1960s and 1970s monthly news magazine serving the counterculture, disestablishment and pro-weed mobs..), who are muddying the waters by painting the problem as a far-right vs far- left fight..

Think of that political spectrum as a 'Bell Curve' along the axis, and you have the political extremes only inhabiting a few percentage points at each end, and you have the majority of the population inhabiting that middle ground between "centre left" and "centre right"..
