Transgender Kids & Puberty Blockers: Stop the Misdiagnosis of Child Gender Dysphoria

This petition had 39 supporters


In the UK, US & other countries, it is too easy for children and teenagers to take risky Puberty Blockers and transition from male to female etc yet they are not able to vote, drive or buy alcohol!!

Fact: "We are concerned about the current trend to quickly diagnose and affirm young people as transgender, often setting them down a path toward medical transition…. We feel that unnecessary surgeries and/or hormonal treatments which have not been proven safe in the long-term represent significant risks for young people. Policies that encourage—either directly or indirectly—such medical treatment for young people who may not be able to evaluate the risks and benefits are highly suspect, in our opinion." From:

I love my LGBT friends yet even some of them agree that children and teenagers are being quickly prescribed dangerous Puberty Blockers when they are suffering from genuine or perceived Gender Dysphoria. 

Puberty blockers are not the answer in many cases. I'm all for education and acceptance but not pushing children that may not "need" to transition into the unknown world which has been described as the mutilation and chemical adaptation of children.

How has this happened? How can we allow children as young as 3 to be more confused about their own gender identity when they do not suffer from Gender Dysphoria which I totally accept is a real thing and a great challenge to those who suffer with Gender Dysphoria. 

Everyone has their own choice and parents feel differently about this.

This is very complicated. I totally love my LGBT friends and I completely accept them for who they are even though we have different views. This is about children and teenagers. Not adults. Ultimately everyone has their own choice and every parent will feel differently about this. The reason I have signed this is nothing to do with adults choosing to transition. I have signed this petition as my local council in the UK are actively pushing young children into confusion which could lead to more cases of gender dysphoria and identity crisis amongst children as young as 3 and 4 years old.

The disgusting discrimination, violence and bullying towards the LGBT community
is obviously wrong. Also encouraging primary school children as young as 4 into being gender fluid (as seen in my own council) is confusing at best and religious discrimination at worst. They are not just educating children about LGBT tolerance and awareness now , it has gone beyond that. I'm all for educating children to be kind, accepting humans. We have a responsibility to our very young children to foster an environment of learning, tolerance, love and kindness... But not confusion and gender identity crisis.

We can all recognise that genuine gender dysphoria in children is real and challenging yet still we don't know the long term impact current laws and medical intervention will cause.. Eg potentially prematurely putting children on puberty blockers that chemically alter their presenting sex.

Sex & gender are different and puberty blockers are dangerous and not to be taken lightly. It is too easy for children and teenagers to be given puberty blockers when they may not have the maturity, support or information to deal with the consequences which will have a long term impact on their lives for positive and negative.

More information and patience is needed before pushing puberty blockers on many that need other support first.

Check out the video updates about real life stories of gender dysphoria or gender identity confusion, cross dressing, abuse from others towards the child with gender dysphoria/confusion, low self esteem, identity crisis, underlying clinical disorders, misdiagnosis, hasty hormonal intervention, transitional surgical procedures, lack of clinical and physiological support, family relationship impacts, continued depression & addictions, substance abuse & dependency, high likelihood of continued depression & suicide attempts even after gender reassignment & surgery, transgender / transsexual regret, getting professional help & proper diagnosis, reverting or reversing transgender / transsexual process / procedure / surgery.

Prevent & Stop the Misdiagnosis of Child Gender Dysphoria: Transgender Kids & Puberty Blockers... Sign today to get this topic addressed with a more statistically backed, scientific approach to government and medical policy... Before more gender dysphoria and transgender / transsexual kids get misdiagnosis, lack of professional clinical support/therapy to resolve other underlying disorders or phobias and STOP encouraging children and teenagers to hastily attempt to change their sex - the outward appearance changes but the inner conflicts and unresolved conflicts remain statistically. Let alone what these hormonal injections and surgical transition will do long term. This is just the beginning for child transgender and transsexual cases, it's beginning to explode and the consequences will be felt for decades to come unless we sign now and stop this misdiagnosis trend before more children become more confused and suicidal. 

Gender is a beautiful, complex construct. Sex and gender both present different challenges but sex and gender are different. Sex is binary at a cell level. Gender is fluid and a social construct. Let's not make it more complex then it needs to be for primary school kids who already live in a very incredible but difficult world...

Sign this petition today to get this topic addressed with a more statistically backed, scientific approach to government and medical policy around child/teenage gender dysphoria, transgender/transsexual experience and hormonal/medical intervention... Even before adulthood. Encourage children to go through normal puberty with support...
