SICK SICK WORLD: Sex-changing treatment for kids: It's on the rise

Sex-changing treatment for kids: It's on the rise

 
 

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.

Pediatricians need to know these kids exist and deserve treatment, said Dr. Norman Spack, author of one of three reports published Monday and director of one of the nation's first gender identity medical clinics, at Children's Hospital Boston.

"If you open the doors, these are the kids who come. They're out there. They're in your practices," Spack said in an interview.

Exactly Russ, First Nations called them berdache/two-spirit people -  although the former term now has other connotations.

That said, endocrine disrupters present in the global water supply is a very, real problem.

What's sick? There are people born with minds of the opposite gender. I find narrow mindedness to be sick.

With all the estrogen and other crap in the water supply for the past 45+, does this surprise anyone?
