NC law would ban treatment for trans people under 21

And require state employees to notify parents about kids displaying "gender nonconforming" behavior

Republicans bitch about "big government" and then they pull shit like this

Without even knowing them I intensely dislike everyone in that photograph.

[quote]state employees to notify parents about kids displaying "gender nonconforming" behavior

Which is going to affect gays and lesbians and tomboys FAR MORE than any trans kids, but the anti-trans troll brigade will try to tell you otherwise.

My state is finally doing something right. Trans treatments can take a devastating toll on one's life and health. It's not to be taken lightly. Nobody under 21 needs to be amputating body parts or gorging on hormones.

I have always had a problem with laws that restrict things to 21 when you reach majority at 18.

I get that you don't want 18 year old in high school buying beer for their underage friends. But, while I do believe that physically altering children is a bad idea, 18 should be the line drawn, not 21.

^^^I mean, I can go to a plastic surgeon and get a boob job without parental consent at 18, so it makes little to no sense to force people to wait for 21 on this issue.

by Anonymousreply 604/07/2021

R4 is a conservative, of course. You probably believe in 13-year-olds being tried as adults in court.

by Anonymousreply 704/07/2021

Wait until 21? To make medical decisions for yourself? WTF?

by Anonymousreply 804/07/2021

Lord. This is just as stupid as making it a crime to NOT let your child trans. Why can't common sense every prevail?

A child who's non-conforming? Let them be. Whatever they age into: trans, gay, straight, other? Let that just fucking happen on its own.

And if you can go to war at 18, you can decide to transition at that age too. But, at the same time, let's not trans kids at 13.

It really isn't that difficult.

No one “transes” kids at 13, you idiot.

by Anonymousreply 1004/07/2021

The DL conservatives cheering for this are so dedicated to hating trans people that they'll support a law that also harms gays

Punishing kids for not being "gender conforming" will absolutely hurt gay kids

Just for you, r10.

R3, you're right that the "gender non-conformity" of little lesbian and gay kids often means they are seen as trans - to their detriment. How about we just abandon the dumb idea that "gender non-conformity" = trans?

by Anonymousreply 1304/07/2021

R3, opposite, actually. The fact that they are putting the gender-nonconformity crap in there is due completely to the fact that trans insist that gender conformity defines normalcy. Trans are the ones that are saying girls act this way and boys act this way. The gay community has spent half a century, at least, trying to end that bullshit but the trans are defined by it. Trans is regressive.

Fucking moron.

North Carolina is a backwards deplorable shithole, so this isn’t surprising.

by Anonymousreply 20Last Thursday at 2:52 AM

The good news: conservatives are afraid of gays now. Trannies are the new 'perverts' to use in fundraising ads.

by Anonymousreply 21Last Thursday at 2:57 AM

R19, you’re the moron. Why don’t you clarify what you mean by “transing” (which isn’t even a word or a concept, except in your bigoted mind).

by Anonymousreply 24Last Thursday at 7:58 AM

I'm not conservative or a Russian, I live in NC and I'm gay. But a law like this might actually save a few people from a tragic mistake. If it even saved one, it would be worth it. Too many parents want 15 minutes of fame and a child's life shouldn't be destroyed in the process.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Thursday at 2:52 PM

R22, if the word "transing" isn't something you can conceptualize and grasp, maybe quit talking to the adults? This discussion probably is a bit over your head.

by Anonymousreply 26Last Thursday at 3:01 PM

R26, you’re right. I’m obviously too unintelligent to comprehend such profoundly technical terms. I bow to your superior intellect and brilliant mind and will leave you to your thread.

You mean treatment for things like a broken bone or an infection, things that are actually “healthcare”?

The extreme wing of both sides of this issue are the ones who are calling the shots. All or nothing never works.

Are any of the drugs that are used for blocking puberty FDA approved for that or are they off label use? I mean lupron was used to treat cancers that had a hormone factor to them (breast and prostate) and were intended to be used very short term. Trans activists claim that they are harmless and imply that if a kid wants to stop them at 15 or 16 their body will immediately go back to naturally developing.

Should kids be able to get abortions without parents’ permission?

by Anonymousreply 31Last Thursday at 3:33 PM

Good for them 21 is the appropriate age. Not 18.

Bullshit! You mess with your endocrine system, you are fucked for life. These kids are prescribed anti-advanced cancer treatments!

That’s how it should be for the time being until they can unequivocally determine who’s trans and who’s gay. We’re not there yet and won’t be for decades. I will fight the trans and their supporters every step of the way.

This is exactly the kind of issue Republicans can win on. We have the popular position on this issue and it’s about time we start acting like it. Force Dems to defend chemically castrating kids.

I have been annoyed with the Republicans lately. Their recent action on this issue gives me hope.
