just in case people don’t click the link and read the thread:

" First, the physician has to examine the girl’s external and internal reproductive anatomy.

I have to emphasize that this will impact girls as young as 5th or 6th grade, ~10-11 years old.

A year or two older than my daughter.

Step one to proving your correct sex is female:

A doctor will need to spread open your labia and examine the size of your clitoris. A clitoris that is “too large” could be a sign that you are intersex and not female enough for sports.

Step two to proving your correct sex is female:

A doctor will then insert one or two gloved fingers inside your vagina, while pressing against your abdomen with their other hand, so they can feel your uterus and ovaries."

Because the point of this legislation is to control people through fear. Violating their body is more effective than a blood test.

Don't care about the publishing source, if you believe the whistleblower, then this is some pretty messed up stuff they're doing.

more reporting on that “whistleblower” from a few months ago

certainty seems like they were full of shit

Quote :
"Two months ago a self-proclaimed whistleblower alleged a pattern of systemic recklessness and deception at a Missouri gender clinic. Subsequently, the same outlet that published her, published a follow-up interview with a mom who was unhappy with her child's care."


Quote :
"In response, the child at issue took to twitter to contradict her mother's claims. Meanwhile, there have been multiple stories by multiple outlets that have reported out other family's experience of the clinic and no one other than this one mother corroborates the allegations."


Quote :
"In fact there have now been *dozens* and *dozens* of interviews conducted that in no way bear out the original allegations. If what the "whistleblower" was saying were true, I feel like we'd have a lot more than a single mom backing it up at this point?"

From my perspective, seems like most people didn’t give a shit about drag shows until they started showing up for children’s story time. When I go to my child’s daycare and read to the class, I don’t do anything to enforce the idea that I’m a male that’s happy in my skin. Just seems like an unnecessary layer put on top of story time.

Hey I’m not arguing for or against here.

But your argument:

Quote :

It’s not the same unless they’re reading books about characters who want to dress in drag lol. Dressing up as Peter Pan and reading Peter Pan is a lot different than dressing up in drag and reading The Berenstein Bears.

I would freak out about a clown dressing up as a clown in general.

But if it's exposure you want, why drag? Why not something a little more realistic? How about a transgender person dressed professionally for whatever career in which they work? Have them come read at story time like that? A transgender person working as a paramedic, or one in construction, ballet, etc. Why does it have to be drag, which is often an over-the-top exaggeration of the female gender.

What 3 year old wouldn't want to dress up in bright clothing, flashy makeup, and glitter all over the place? And then when they get home from one of these story hours and do want to dress up like that, parents are like "Welp, guess that's that. Time for gender dysphoria therapy"

That last sentence was obviously sarcasm. Guess I should have included a /sarcasm there.

Clowns? No, not really. Clowns have also long been established as children's entertainment. There's precedence there. Do clowns relate to whatever story they're telling? No. Have clowns been hired to make children laugh for like what, the last 150 years or more? Yea. Plus, McDonalds.

^Not sure where that came from. I don't think anybody here has an issue with boys dressing in girls' shoes.

My daughter will randomly paint my son's nails and he loves it. He's always wanting to wear her stuff, etc, and we don't discourage that at all.

That runs counter to the folks who think it's ok to give puberty blockers to children. Puberty blockers should be given in early puberty around 10 or 11, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Fucking 10 or 11. We're talking about humans who have been able to successfully wipe their ass for about 5 or 6 years. And it's ok to give them drugs that could potentially permanently affect their ability to have children down the road?

I know that they take an oath to do no harm.

Doing something to a 10 year old that could potentially fuck them up down the road, in my book, is harm.

But hey, these parents can shop around until they find an activist medical professional. It's their right as parents.

Yeah, it's kinda like normalizing gay people by having dudes read books in the stereotypical 'gay' cali boy accent

regardless, this is mainly an issue being drummed up unnecessarily. these aren't things you can or should control on a federal/state level

Quote :

I've heard a lot of people say the medical field hasn't properly vetted stuff for women, who are 50% of the population, due to it being male focused.

so I'd say it is pretty reasonable to think that studies on transgenderism aren't at their most mature stage yet, and that it is still being figured out given how even sports organizations keep on changing rules on certain %s or whatever
Not to mention how wrong professionals have been in the past on many things, especially against minorities

-

I think society kind of works like a swing (most of the time), we're too behind, and then in progress we may jump a bit too forward, but eventually we find the right place in the middle that is right, and settle down

Sure they do. And hasn't there been a movement against that as well?

And if you want to argue orders of magnitude, having a foreskin removed is pretty low on the scale vs irreversible infertility.

I'm sorry but I can't empathize with a 10 year old who has their whole life ahead of them saying they want to be the opposite of whatever gender they currently are, and parents acting on it. At that age, things change like the wind. Sure, I know that there has to be a record of gender dysphoric traits before they consider these types of therapies, but again, you're doing something to your child that could be irreversible.

Why not give it a few more years?

In my humble opinion, puberty blockers are tantamount to child abuse. No amount of calcium supplements are going to make up for lost bone density during this period - and that's just one potential problem. You're robbing Peter(biology) to pay Paul (mental health).

^^I think my best answer to that is that I don't really understand. And since I don't understand I choose to trust the medical professionals involved and hope they have the best interests at heart and truly look at the full picture including psychology (which it seems they do, or are supposed to anyway). If there were just a few rogue Dr's I might have a harder time, but it seems like treatments are endorse by medical societies, and rare.
