Posted on 10/17/2011 8:08:10 AM PDT by jakerobins
A lesbian couple in California who say their 11-year-old son Tommy may actually be a girl named Tammy are giving their child hormone blockers that delay the onset of puberty -- so that he can have more time to decide exactly who he, or she, is.
The couples supporters say the Hormone Blocking Therapy has only minor side effects and is appropriate for a child who is unsure of his gender. "This is definitely a changing landscape for transgender youth," said Joel Baum, director of education and training for Gender Spectrum, a California-based non-profit group. "This is about giving kids and their families the opportunity to make the right decision."

So, letting a kid eat a happy meal at McDonalds is child abuse but this is perfectly peachy. We are truly living in bizarro world.
So if they don’t abort them they turn kids into freaks. Not much of a “choice” is it? SOB’n progressives.
A lesbian couple. Really making a case for homosexuals having custody of children. Damn sick....
It is an utter abomination.
the slippery slope just hit 90 degrees
Why gay people should never be allowed to adopt.
this IS child abuse and remedial action needs to be taken immediately.
If you spank your child the child may get taken away by CPS Nazis for abuse. If you interfere with your child’s normal growth and development by giving them hormones it’s just a parental choice.
Allow homosexuals to adopt. What could go wrong?
Definitely child abuse. The doctor giving the child these meds should also be brought up on charges.
11 year olds are NOT aware of any sexual identity issues, EXCEPT to the extent they’ve been brainwashed by their sicko, man hating “parents”.
A child’s brain, and their emotions, do not stop developing until they are, at least, 18 years old. This is a disgrace. At what point did we wake up in an alternate reality?
In a sane world this “couple” would be doing the perpwalk.
The child of my "partner" had the spirit of an evil frog living within his kidneys. I fixed it through daily beatings, blood-letting, and drug therapy. And they called me crazy.... (sarc)
I thought the left was completely aghast at the practice of Castrati.
Church = evil and degraded
Lefty progressives = enlightened and holy
Sometime after Jan 20th 2009...at least for me it was......
Wouldn’’t the “treatment” itself contribute to the problem? I’m not a doctor, but maybe the problem is some hormonal imbalance to start with!
“11 year olds are NOT aware of any sexual identity issues...”
I agree. The child is only eleven years old! Think back to when you were eleven. What did you want to do with your life? What did you want to be? You either didn’t know or came up with the idea that you would be an astronaut, a model, a figure skater (or along those lines). Did any of those concepts come to fruition? To medically disfigure an 11 year old is horrible.
Here's an even simpler method to help your child determine his/her "gender": Have your child look between his/her legs. Also, if the child's "parents" are "unsure" of the his "gender" then they should IMMEDIATELY put him up for adoption so that he/she can have a fighting chance of being raised by sane people.
Unless the child is one of the VERY few people who are born with a certain genetic defect and who are known as hermaphrodites, then there is absolutely NO DOUBT of the child's "gender".
It sickens me to even consider the possibliltity, but I think there is a possiblity that these two lesbian mothers hate men so much that they sought to adopt a boy specifically so they could psychologically destroy him. I have nothing but pity for him and nothing but contempt for his parents.
PS Any physician who administers this hormone therapy to an 11 year old should have his/her/its license to practice medicine permanently revoked, and should be criminally charged with the sexual abuse of a child.
