In California, the law requiring public schools to let children use sex-segregated facilities and participate in the gender-specific activities of their choice is now in effect.
I feel what gets lost in this futuristic model of kids’ genders is that kids see how easy it is change clothes from one gender to another without realizing a real sex change from one gender to another is a much different matter. Hormone blockers fall short of producing a sex change and so does cosmetic surgery, but the doctors get very wealthy by making you think they changed your gender.
A sex change from male to female requires much more than a wardrobe change, plastic surgery and hormones. Indeed if you are a male and want to be a female you will need a surgical procedure that is capable of replacing the genital reproductive system from a sperm delivery system to a sperm receiving system with vaginal pocket, ovaries that produce eggs that can be fertilized and a uterus that can incubate a baby.
I wonder with all the focus on our young people changing genders with a wardrobe change do these young impressionable minds really have the idea they have actually had (or will experience) a sex change?
Changing clothing from one gender to another perhaps is zany and fun for some youngsters. It is important they fully understand they did not have a sex change and there’s no way to do that with a wardrobe change unless the child was born with both male and female reproductive systems.
So I hope with all the freedom kids have to change their clothes and gender presentations they are also taught their sex did not change.
As a former transgender kid from the age of 5, I can say from my experience that by encouraging wardrobe changes, hormone blockers, hormones and surgery, we are propelling our young people toward anxiety, depression and an unhappy life.
