Children as young as 12 are to be allowed drugs to block puberty while they decide whether to have a sex change, it has been revealed.
The monthly injection suspends the onset of adulthood so that young people confused about their gender can be sure of any decision before they take on too many masculine or feminine features.
Supporters say that the "window" prevents a great deal of mental and physical anguish caused by the maturing of sex organs, facial hair growth and changes in the voice.
But critics argue it only prolongs the agony and can prevent people "growing out" of any feelings of confusion.
The treatment can be prescribed for people diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID) a rare psychiatric condition where a person is born one sex, but feels they are the other.
One of the main effects of the drugs is to stunt the development of sexual organs so less surgery will be required if someone chooses to permanently change their gender at a later date.
However, bodily and hormonal changes will continue as normal if the medication is stopped.
Until this month, British doctors were prevented from offering youngsters diagnosed with gender issues any medical intervention before the late stages of puberty usually at 16.

What's it called, the Michael Jackson Treatment?
Agreed, it is a form of child abuse.
I do not understand all this homosexual, bi-sexual, trans-whatever feelings. However, it seems clear to me that all of that is for consenting adults, adults who have some maturity to deal with it all. By definition, children and adolescents simply should not be dealing with any of this. Growing up is a challenge in and of itself, without having eager alternative lifestyle advocates trying to urge children to do something drastic.
So if it is a mental illness, doesn’t the use of hormone injections reinforce the illness much like giving a drunk alcohol, or letting a person with agoraphobia stay in his house?
Only true monsters would engage in this type of mutilation. They need to be purged from the planet.
Mix that drug into the student meals - perhaps that way we can get their minds off sex long enough to teach them something.
Some are confused about their species. No joke.
Considering the numerous disorders these kids will develop on their way into adulthood, they should just go ahead and give them a lobotomy while they’re at it. Save them the time and trouble later.
I saw a preview a month or so ago for a show on Orca’s new channel. It was called something like trans gender children or something like it.
The preview showed what looked like a 10 year old kid. The kid was a boy but he thought he was a girl trapped in a boys body and the worse thing was his parents let him live and dress like a girl. I didn’t see the show so I don’t know if he was receiving hormones. The parents need to go to jail for child abuse. What 10 year old knows anything let alone what gender they think’ they’re supposed to be.
It was very distrurbing.
I am a lesbian trapped in a Man’s body!
All I want is to have sex with women.
Oops, my bad!
The englanders are on their way out of this world. They are soon to be replaced by mohammedans.
God help America to avoid this fate but I am not optimistic given the metrosexuals and dykes in the executive branch and the spineless queenies who call themselves republicans in the People’s house.
Seeing that we’ve decided that childhood is not defined by biology, but by being under 18 years of age, perhaps we should block puberty for everyone until they hit 18, or maybe even until they graduate from college. Then people could marry promptly upon becoming sexually mature, rather then being held in a stasis where their hormones urge them to mate, but the only outlet for this desire is fornication.
I’m not really seriously proposing this, just pointing to another absurdity in our society’s sexual mores.
There is a small % of children born and the sex is unknown. Usually they will go by x ray to see what the internal organs are and raise the child according to that with surgery done later. But that is certainly not the norm. If its still not determined they pick the sex they think will be best....weird stuff happens...like the little girl in India with 4 arms and 4 legs that was recently on a documentary...
Yes, all public law must be transfigured to accommodate people who have questionable sexuality. It’s more common for children to be born with two heads, but that is a different minority status, which will require double headrests in all automobiles offered for sale to the common public.
It’s for the children, ya know. /s
They always said Jamie Lee Curtis was born of unknown gender. It kind of plays out, since she had to adopt to have children, she chooses mannish hairstyles, has a low voice, and just seems mannish. Her boobs are fake too.
I mentioned nothing about making laws or didn't you notice that?
