Gender identity

BBC article

Louis Theroux has done a programme about Transgender Kids

I tried to point my daughter towards things like Lego, bikes and building blocks but she always chose dolls, prams and cookers when we went to her playgroup.

I think all children should be encouraged to dress how they want and choose which toys they play with but the programme made me feel quite uncomfortable as the medication being taken by young children to prevent them having the "wrong sort of puberty" seemed to be forcing decisions on young people at a very early stage of development.

Are we torturing children when we force them to accept the gender they were assigned at birth?

Why, oh why, can we not just let our children enjoy being children!
