A lesbian couple in California who say their 11-year-old son wants to be a girl are giving their child hormone blockers to delay the onset of puberty. REALLY? I find this to be rather odd, in that, giving a child a controversial therapy or drug to be nothing less than neglect and abuse. What are the long term affects? Even though it is designed to delay the onset of puberty, there are unexplored dangers such as the possibility of gene mutation, or some other long term affect that may be detrimental. There was a time when parents, even if homosexual, were to act as such – not as the child’s friend.
What are your thoughts on such a thing? Is this abusive, neglectful, or an infringement upon the parent’s rights to raise their child?
