    i would not support it because a teenager is in no state of mind to make a life-changing decision of such caliber. many people who go through sex change regret it and commit suicide. i read somewhere the doctor who founded sex reassignment surgery considered transgenderism to be a psychiatric disorder.
    And yet, they are made to choose the career they want to pursue.

    OK - hold up. You can have opinions guys and it's an important debate to have but please do not insult others for their opinions, that's not fair.

    It wouldn't happen, as that sort of thing only happens when it is fostered by the environment the child is raised in- i.e. always told females are superior, males are stupid/dumb, viewing stuff like that in the media.

    I'd just get him eating steak and lifting weights to boost his test levels and grow out of the phase.

    Obviously. But, that wasn't my point.

    And, oh god, not a dress, not the evil that is a dress.

    that's interesting. i wonder if there's been a case where a person with high testosterone wanted to become a woman.

    Their happiness and wellbeing would always be my number one concern, so if I was convinced that gender reassignment surgery would be for the best then I'd do everything I could to help guide them through it.

    Maybe because of transphobic bigots like yourself, perhaps?

    nah, they commit suicide because they realize they've committed a massive mistake that they cannot go back on. the sjw degenerates are normalizing things that are morally wrong, soon we'll be debating if pedophilia is acceptable.

    How is being transgender in anyway comparable to paedophilia? It's people like you that cause the suicide rate of trans people to be so high.

    You're thinking of John Money, a sexologist at Johns Hopkins. He was also a paedophile and a rapist in his spare time. Anyway he was the first guy to do a sex change, and he did it on this kid who had his penis destroyed in a car accident as a baby. He had this little 2 year-old live as a girl, pretend to have sex with his twin brother and just generally brainwashed him. The kid stopped identifying as a woman by his teens, but as is often the case with the mentally ill hardship was never far away. His marriage broke down, he was plagued by financial trouble and he killed himself in his 30s.

    I wouldn't care. I would love them regardless. It's not my life to dictate and as long as they are fully happy with their decisions I would help and support them through everything. My best friend is transgender and although they have not undergone surgery they prefer male pronouns. It doesn't change our friendship and in no way affects me at all. Something as simple as gender shouldn't change how you feel about somebody.
