only when the argument is convenient for them.
but they're right on this one.
Hypocritical ass GOP. Regulation is government overreach but the government legislating women's uterus and this situation is fine and dandy?
this same "sure" 15-16 can't go walk in and get a tattoo but we want to reassign their sex? waiting til 18 aint gonna kill them...if poor trans kids who can't afford surgery can keep living, so can the ones who can afford it.
smh @ all the research that shows the maturity and decision making curve in brain development up til ~25, but now 11 and 13 year olds have the wherewithal to decide to take hormones and turn their dikks into vaginas
They are on the right side of this issue. They can wait until they are adults. For the time being just dress like the gender you feel.
its the government regulating child abuse
if your kid tells you theyre the other gender, you tell them "no they arent" and they can see if they still feel that way at 18. you dont give a confused 10 year old the green light to cut his dikk off
15 take yo ass to school. You wanna cut your nuts off do it when you grown.
I don’t see anything wrong with letting a 16 year old start hormone therapy and restricting surgery to those who are no longer minors. I just don’t like the hypocrisy with these people.
This definitely not the hill I’m gonna die on. I’m far left but this is an issue that really doesn’t concern me at all.
I think the social impact is pretty high...
One of the extremely rare times the GOP got it right. Although it’s a very hypocritical and ironic position considering how they feel about abortion.
This section is especially cruel and will lead to more suicide attempts among transgender teens.
"Children" aren't making this decision alone. And it is not an easy or simple decision made on a whim. They're usually done in coordination with mental health professions, parents and specialists *and* it takes time and care, which is being criminalized in Alabama. Bills like this are designed to punish people not protect them.
That is just creating an unnecessary burden on people that are already suffering. And who's to say they won't criminalize that either?
I don't know if you've seen the show "I Am Jazz", but that boy's parents gave him puberty blockers when he was 8.
Boosie that you!!!
We have mail order pharmacies now. But in case of an emergency I can see how it could be a problem.
If the best surgeon to perform a permanent procedure is in another state I would think that would override the convenience of who is in the area.
