Thread Name: BS: Change of sex prior to 18
Subject: RE: BS: Change of sex prior to 18
Transgender folks know from quite an early age that they are transgender. They KNOW.
Forcing someone born male to develop secondary sex characteristics, mainly the changed voice because YOU (the generic you) don't feel as comfortable with a girl being a girl as the kid does just makes life harder for her.
I don't know if it's as hard for trans boys and secondary female characteristics.

Fundamentally, I'm opposed to "other people" butting their noses into folks' personal decisions. Those who advocate an age limit want to force these kids to go through puberty as the "wrong" gender.
