LGBT: Is the sort of person who would force a transgender kid to go through puberty against their will .....?

..... Also the sort of person who would force someone to carry a pregnancy toi term against their will?

It doesn't take a lot of twisting to turn an argument against puberty blockers into an argument against reproductive choice.

    Your logic is sound; they are plenty of individuals out there who have a need to control the lives of others. In these cases it would be mainly for religious purposes.

    Okay, say you are a parent of a child with gender dysphoria, and you want to do the right thing for your child. You have your child seen by a good gender therapist. The therapist confirms that your child has gender dysphoria but also tells you that in 75% of these cases the person prefers to accept his biological gender by the time they complete puberty. Just because they have gender dysphoria as a child doesn't necessarily mean they will still have gender dysphoria as an adult. Yep, that 75% is a fact.

    A good parent will need to carefully evaluate their child's condition before they make a decision to use hormone blockers or not. The vast majority of transgenders make their transition after puberty, and they still make a good transition.

    Please note: Even after a transgender transitions they still have a very high suicide rate.

    It's a very big question, and I don't see, in complete honesty, a big difference. At the end of the day they are both about the person's control over their own body.

    Not treating your kid right and taking care of them isnt equal to letting a woman murder her child.

    That being said im pro abortion. Its great liberals kill alot of their offspring; wish they got their tubes tied after a certain number of baby murders.
