If you don't like transgender children blame straight people. They're the ones who keep having transgender babies.

Happy Friday Miss C!

Regarding trans kids: it's Vox, so it is an incomplete article.

The issue is that there have been many stories of people who, as kids, and "top surgery" (mastectomies) and/or "bottom surgery" (penis removal, or hysterectomy with also removing the ovaries and making a penis from skin taken from an arm or leg and manipulating tissue to finish off the male genitalia) who end up regretting having that surgery. There are also stories of people that regret taking hormones or puberty blockers that end up regretting that.

No, I do not know if there are studies to know how many minors transitioned to the opposite sex go on to regret vs. are glad of their choice, but there are some number of people on either side.

The other issue is that some states allow this permanent procedures on minors without parental consent. But aren't parents supposed to know what is happening to their children and protect them?

With all of this, the states passing the laws that keep minors from possibly making permanent changes and then regretting it.

The other piece is allowing boys who decide they are girls to compete in girls' sports. This is inherently unfair to natural girls. As an example, the Kentucky boy's record for the 100-meter dash is 10.50 seconds; for girls, it is 11.92.
