Sex-Change Operations On The Rise - For Teens.
When I read the article the first thought that came to mind was:
WTF? Here's a snippet:
CHICAGO (AP) - A small but growing number of teens and even younger children who think they were born the wrong sex are getting support from parents and from doctors who give them sex-changing treatments, according to reports in the medical journal Pediatrics.
It's an issue that raises ethical questions, and some experts urge caution in treating children with puberty-blocking drugs and hormones.
An 8-year-old second-grader in Los Angeles is a typical patient. Born a girl, the child announced at 18 months, "I a boy" and has stuck with that belief. The family was shocked but now refers to the child as a boy and is watching for the first signs of puberty to begin treatment, his mother told The Associated Press.
WTF is wrong with us? Are we all collectively taking a ride to hell in a hand basket? An 8 year old second grader wants to become a boy? Didn't we used to call that a tom-boy and the girl dealt with it? What the hell is going on? Or, maybe, is it....
