The S.D. House has voted to stop hormone blockers/sex reassignment for kids

The South Dakota House of Representatives has voted to advance a bill that would charge doctors that prescribe hormone blocking medicine or perform a sex reassignment surgery on a child under 16 with a misdemeanor. This has been met with severe criticism from Trans rights activists who think that the law is anti-Trans at it’s core and will do irreparable damage to trans children.

Finally. Genital mutilation should be illegal regardless of age as it does nothing to help the underlying. Society took a wrong turn when it started doing this and it needs corrected

Misleading headline, the bill is in regards to puberty blockers, a permanently damaging untested set of drugs that have been pushed on people too young to be trusted to go to sleep at a reasonable hour. This practise is by its very nature, predatory. And it should be illegal.

The surgeries the kids go through are unnecessary and harmful due to them being in the begging stages of life. Kids don't have the logic adults posses and can't decide for themselves even if their parents or one of their parents says they're trans for their own publicity.

Transgenderism is more of an ideology than a sexual orientation.

No way any kid is mature enough to make this kind of decision.

These are kids. They can't vote, can't drink, can't drive, can't sign a contract, can't marry, haven't even achieved a high school diploma, and have the foresight slightly further than next week. Why would we expect them to make permanent life altering decisions? 18 years isn't too long of a wait. Then they can do what they want.

most kids change thier minds later. also if you block puberty you stunt not only physical growth but mental development. Puberty is way more than just gender changes. it's from child to adult, regardless if male or female. it's completely ignorant to think it just effects sexual characteristics. stop with the child abuse. these same ignorant people say gender is social construct, if it's not biological, why do you need "biological" hormones.

So far, all data says that you can't fix a mental illness with surgery or hormones. 45% suicide rate stands regardless of transition efforts because it doesn't fix the underlying problem... Mental illness.

Finally, some sanity in the world. Let adults make their own choices.

This is great news for the kids. Figures vary, but most who de-transition originally transitioned as adolescents. You can still let a child express themselves as they wish. Any transition can take place in adulthood. I mean we won’t even let them vape until they’re 21.

This is not a left right issue it's far more sober than that.. A child's right to be a kid n enjoy their childhood n explore who they are without being subjected to bs medical experimental meds

Republicans love transgender as long as they don't get caught. Same for abortions. They love them as long as they don't get caught....

There is hope for the children after all. God save them from batshit mothers and doctors with an agenda. Transitioning is big money these days.
