    Are Children Ages 3-4 Getting Hormones and Surgery?

    Please see "Betteridge's Law".

    BRIAN KILMEADE (HOST): People are even talking about deciding what gender they want to be as youngsters.

    JORDAN PETERSON: Yeah. Well that's happening all over. It's an absolute epidemic. And we've decided that children as young as 3 or 4 can now decide what gender they are and then undergo the appropriate surgical and biological alterations to bring their morphology in keeping with that. And it's a mistake of epic proportions and we are going to pay for it in a big way.

    Fox & Friends guest pushes myth that 3 and 4 year old trans kids are making "surgical and biological alterations" to their bodies - Media Matters
    TL;DR:

    Children 3 and 4 do not receive hormones or even puberty blockers, let alone surgeries. If the parents (and school) allows them to, they can "socially transition" at that age, i.e., dress in their target gender and use their chosen pronouns. Other 3 and 4 year olds don't really notice or care about these things. No human being that young has secondary sex characteristics, which is what hormone therapy and surgeries are meant to address/correct.

    This is just another scare tactic to drive ratings, freak you out, and get you to contribute your money to someone's political campaign (be they R or D).


    Don't be a sucker.

    Coyote,

    Don't let the truth get in the way of pressing your agenda:

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/sex-cha...s-on-the-rise/

    "An 8-year-old second-grader in Los Angeles is a typical patient."

    "The report details 97 girls and boys treated between 1998 and 2010; the youngest was 4 years old."

    https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/loca...423082734.html

    "Doctors are now considering allowing children to undergo hormone therapy at earlier ages in order to change their bodies."

    The 8 year old you mention is not getting hormone treatment. From your link:

    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.

    Why are you cutting and pasting in a way to intentionally mislead? The 4 year old and 8 year old are getting psychological treatment, not hormones. From your link:

    The report details 97 girls and boys treated between 1998 and 2010; the youngest was 4 years old. Kids that young and their families get psychological counseling and are monitored until the first signs of puberty emerge, usually around age 11 or 12. Then children are given puberty-blocking drugs, in monthly $1,000 injections or implants imbedded in the arm.

    A 12 year old is not old enough to make a decision like that.

    Which is why if they do get hormones, they have to stop at a point later, and make another decision whether to keep going before damage is done that can't be reversed. Seems to be many stepping stones along the way, a lot of counseling, not big sweeping permanent decisions early on.

    I don't think right or wrong can be a sweeping answer. It's all very individual. That boy in Virginia that is going to SCOTUS is very sure he is a boy. Has been living as one for so long, forcing him into the girls' room upset everyone. The girls were like we don't want a boy in here.
