18. We consider kids to be adults and able to make their own decisions at 18. We allow kids to join the military at 18.

I don't agree wth the idea of trans genderism but if 18 is a legal adult then that ought to be the red line as far as age.

Considering thhe fact that 63-88% of people in Holland that transitioned have DE-transitioned, yeah....it wouldnt be a bad idea for kids to have fully developed brains before they make a stupid decision based on a fad that has been pushed on their generation by a bunch of sick demented leftist pies of shit.

I don't know how your brain works but mine is given pause when I take into account that people better educated than me who

So straight kids can't decide they're straight until 18?
I kinda had that figured out by the time I was 8 or 9. Something about the large breasts on one of my mom’s friends.

It's the same with gay or trans kids. Granted, I didn't realized I was gay until around 24, however when I look back in life, my earliest memory was wanting to take a bath with a friend because I wanted to see him naked.

I don’t doubt it. The issue here is really one of being mature enough to make a life altering decision. If a gay or straight kid initially mistakes their orientation it’s really not the end of the world. A 14 year old who decides to get a sex change and then realizes it was a mistake would be tragic. It’d be similarly tragic for an adult but we assume adults can weigh those risks before making a decision.

We largely don’t allow people under 18 to make important life decisions on their own. I don’t see any good reason to make this an exception to that rule.

Many LGBTQ people knew they were such or at least had an idea well before they turned 18. It is cruel and barbaric indocrination to force them to be cishet if they know that they are not.

Consider the recruitment on children at a vulnerable age.
2 of 3 Boys P.E. coaches at my O.C. High School came out a decade or two later
Yet no "straight" man would be hired to coach Girl's P.E.
Go Figure - or not
Recruitment of vulnerable minors, happens.


And There Are exceptions such as the Cher & Bono child
referenced above. But, Too Young To Be Recruited.

^ Deranged post. There is no evidence of LGBTQ "recruitment" of minors. It's just red meat for a paranoid base.

It's so weird that with the non-stop "straight" programming on television, in movies, video games, and in general society, those gay kids never seem to get recruited into straightness...

Straight men teach PE all the time I have no idea what you're talking about there.

8 or 9 ?????

Really.
That seems odd to you? Didn’t say I jumped her just that I liked what I saw. And I had my first female friend at around the same time. Pretended to be married. Was not at all unusual in the late 60s early 70s where I grew up.
