i'm sure you think you're being kind but the reality is you are pushing them down a path of unhappiness and confusionthe true way to help them is to push back against them and tell them no, you are not really the opposite sex and that is an impossible thing
If your kid has gender dysphoria they will likely go down there road of being a transgender and transitioning with or without your support. Especially if the parents force the kid to not express themselves that kid will just have a even greater desire to want to do it. All you can do is be supportive
here are 12 scientific studies that show over 90% of children that say they are trans do indeed grow out of it- it is just a phase Lebovitz, P. S. (1972).

Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 52, 582–590.so no, most people do grow out of it, thinking you are trans is something you can cure with different thinking. just don't encourage them
See, see :D... two d/v in 3 hrs. 'Blue' ones. I'm irritated: pink-blue, or blue-pink? You guys are SO confusing...
that's whats wrong with your daughter. you never push back and thus she becomes the victim of pseudoscience fads
its not being themselves, its a fad and a mental illness to pretend they are someone elseand it only makes people unhappy
@007kingifrit I have never been happier thank you very much
I’m going to assume you’ve never actually spoken to someone who is trans by your comments alone. Come back when you’ve open minded my spoken to one.
you tell me that if i have an opinion you don't like it must be because of an arbitrary reason... and yet you declare yourself open minded?also; it makes no sense; you can't ask people about themselves... you are the least likely to know anything about yourself because YOU are inside your own heada trans person cannot honestly or accurately know if they are really trans. just like a schizophrenic isn't qualified to know if their visions are real or not
Maybe I can’t tell if I’m trans or not but my THREE professional psychologists can and have. You can also ask everyone who knows me before and after and they’ll all tell you how much happier I am in life.
Don’t put words in my mouth and take your transphobia elsewhere. Any further attempt to justify your hate will be removed.Good day.
Open-Minded at what cost?
The cost was letting ignorance go. Not a bad thing.
Is not Igornorance to me. Its supporting Delusional Behavior.
Take your homophobia elsewhere.
Oh I'm so hurt.
Supporting gays and supporting trans are 2 different things. One I would accept, and the other is B. S.
Again, take your transphobia elsewhere. This conversation is over.
Wow, this place is starting to feel like 4-Chan-lite
Sounds like you come from great stock 👍🏻
A wise man once said "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." I didn't downvote you though. That was three other idiot savants.
@SunnyCaliGirl Thanks girl my dad was And athletes and a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force
That is true. Sex and gender are also 2 very different things.
@gaygod_19 No, they're pretty much the same thing. All this confusion is astounding.
And it’s true most children don’t understand gender that well (but that doesn't take the validity of their identity away) so we would have to wait until they grow up into adults to decide if they want hormones or surgeries or not. But listen to them when they say they don’t identify with their birth sex, and show support by using their preferred pronouns and refer to them as their preferred gender since it takes zero cent to care about your child and limit the chances of them killing themselves or developing some types of mental illness such as depression due to their family not accepting them for who they are.
And no, you are wrong. Feel free to search up for for more info. Sex is your genitals and sexual organs. Gender is in the mind.
@gaygod_19 - Proof positive why everybody is so fucked up now. Clueless in Cleveland.
Did you look up facts? If not then do so. Come back when you have educated yourself on the topic of gender and sex.
@gaygod_19 - Not for you dippy. You're a fool.
So now we have the “talking purely based on feelings over facts” typa guy. Great. Just amazing.
amen, all these kids are so fucked up... and i'm saying that in my 20sa generation ruined by pseudoscience
That gender is a social construct is sociological theory, not fact.
@LuvMeSomeBoys gender is not a social construct Even monkeys show gender differences the same as humans do……good luck saying that’s a social construct since they existed before society www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2583786/ Across all cultures boys and girls draw differently at a young age, boys draw actions and weapons and girls draw faces www.sciencedirect.com/.../S0197455614000045 gender is a fundamental biological fact
@007kingifrit I think you misread my comment, that or I phrased it awkwardly. We're on the same page here. Those claiming that gender is a social construct are promoting a sociological theory, not a fact. I think we agree.
@LuvMeSomeBoys actually i agree, it’s a sociological theory. But still, the guy failed to explained his points logically rather than spilling hatred.
@LuvMeSomeBoys oh we do agree
@gaygod_19 - How 'bout FUCK OFF. I owe you NOTHING.
Aww look whose fragile ego got hurt by a 21 year old girl 😔 so sad 😞
@gaygod_19 - Your level of confusion is astounding. You really should read more and post less, cuz every time you do you further prove how imbecilic you are. Loser...Somehow you think I'm emotionally invested in this... which proves you're projecting again. News flash toots - IDGAF.
amen, its just a social fad
Yup with their queerbaiting like river dale sabrina, last of us Dragon age they try to enforce or put these ideas in the heads of the youth to increase their numbers on the left.
if you want them to be happy and healthy you should discourage the social trend of claiming to be trans. it would lead to a lifetime of confusion and eventually suicide as she constantly tried to become something she could never be, a man.the suicide rate of trans people never falls below 41% even if they are totally accepted by others, that indicates to me that something is wrong up there besides just public acceptance
@007kingifrit I do agree with you. My stance is it's my child we're talking about. I would be really upset but in the end I would have to accept my grown child's wishes. I don't condone this sort of behavior at all but I'm not going to condemn my child.
@OfDeathWow, we almost somewhat agree on this!Hey, @solitude_asian , check this out!We DO have something in common!
@I-am-a-nobody Lol, you like to ask me to look at so and so' s posts :-P
@I-am-a-nobody unfortunately the WHO no longer has the integrity to admit gender dysphoria or gender "incongruence" is a mental disorder. Ironically they still recommend counseling for it.
Good luck with that. I didn't downvote you though, that was two other confused degenerates.
@EnglundUberAlles Damn, I was one more upvote away from a pony, too.
