Transgender children
Posted 12/10/15 , edited 12/10/15
Would you support your child if they told you they were transgender?Iv'e seen videos of children who say that they would like to be the opposite gender or feel like they were born in the wrong body and even go as far as to say that they would like to remove their male genitalia and would like to have breasts. How would you react if your child told you this? would you support them? or is a child just to young to even comprehend what they're saying? {Discuss} Links to vids i saw >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH4kbybo60Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epDPui27QZQ

If I actually had children, or ever end up with some.. why not, they'd still be my children, they're still family, I don't think their gender identity would really matter whatsoever.

Now as for an actual kid saying this, I think it would be important to sit down, think, and discuss all of it, i'm not sure I would consider an 11 y/o as being able to comprehend the gravity of the situation.

Yes I would support my child. That's my child after all.

Yes. It's not something I feel should be changed.

Children are way too young for this. Age of consent exists because kids are too young to make these kinds of life choices.

I would support them in such a way that doesn't restrict them to gender roles, whether it be playing with bricks or dolls, but I draw the line at life altering decisions they are not ready to make.

I would support them.

I will not let them have the surgery until they hit puberty though...because it could be a phase, you know.

Just like Brad Pitt is hoping that his daughter Shiloh will change once she hits puberty but for now, Shiloh is John:

Of course I would support them, but also accept that depending on how young the kid is (like pre-adolescent age) it could just be something they grow out of.

i know but thats why i asked if you would support them because although they're too young to do these things on their own the parents in the videos i linked supported them and got them special treatments like testosterone blockers and estrogen pills to make them more feminine but theyre not allowed to get sexual reassignment surgery so young because it would make them infertile so they would have to wait to be older to have the procedure done

I will let you know when I have one and see the actions they take over time I'm old fashion. So it would be hard on me if I was a dad you know , I would not know what to do honestly it will be up in the air

I'll tell my children to stop thinking about petty shit (To me at least) and play some video games.

Antisocial personality disorder can not be used on a minor because their "brain is still forming until 18" but this flies against that as tries to claim kids younger than that know their gender is wrong?
