Posted on 10/17/2011 11:38:42 AM PDT by Puppage
A lesbian couple in California who say their 11-year-old son Tommy who wants to be a girl named Tammy are giving their child hormone blockers that delay the onset of puberty -- so that he can have more time that he can have more time to decide if he wants to change his gender.
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."

This is so wrong. I feel so sorry for that boy.
Let’s see, a pre-pubscent male boy, raised by a pair of Lesbian has gender identity issues? Who’d have thunk? And they found a licensed doctor to prescribe hormone therapy for a normaly developing male child?
Am I the only one who questions politically motivated medical malpractice and reckless endangerment of a child?
You do realize what is the most bizarre part of all this, don’t you?
“Sexual orientation,” which is essentially a mental attitude, we are supposed to believe to be unchangeable, inborn and just a fact of nature. Get used to it. Anybody who suggests the possibility of change is an evil bigoted hater.
Meanwhile, the actual physical genitalia and chromosomes are NOT really real, they’re subject to change at whim. Anybody who suggests that surgical alteration can’t really change a male into a female or the reverse is an evil bigoted hater.
Yep, child abuse. Injecting hormones into a child. How can that be good? I refused to take them for menopause.
This is DIFFERENT.
This is a criminal case of child abuse. Precisely why sex perverts must not be permitted to “marry” or adopt children. The lesbians need to be arrested, charged, and sent to jail. No different from pedophiles/pederasts, child molesters, etc. Sick, sick, sick...
Where is Child Protective Services?
When all of the natural, biological processes in this boy come to a boil and override the indoctrination and abuse by these two freaks, he is going to murder them both.
That's a damn good point.
How can this be legal? How can it be legal to do this to a child?
He’ll probably just commit suicide. A lot of “transgendered” creatures do that, even the ones who voluntarily went through this process when they were older.
I think this is child abuse. The boy would be better off in a foster home.
wow... what are the chances that this young boy with sexual identity problems would be raised by two women with sexual identity problems and encouraged not to be the man that these women would want him to become...
it’s a good thing these open minded lesbians were his parents so that they could allow him to change who he is to what he should have been all along.
obviously, live and let live is what they really strive for.
Bring back public horse whipping.
C'mon, its not like he wants to become a Boy Scout or be a Christian.
Poor, poor child. Confused because he grew up in a confused household. Reminds me of the story of the gay playwright Paul Zindel who was raised in a household of bitter, crazy women: he didn’t know to raise the toilet seat until he was around 12.
Further down in the article:
“They said Thomas threatened to mutilate his genitals when he was 7.”
What kind of threat is this for a 7 year old? What does he know about genitals to make this type of threat? How does he know about the alternative at 7?
