But onc there are people with body disphoric disorder, or apotemnophilia who want perfectly healthy limbs cut off so in a terribly disabled state they can feel whole.
It 's all right to give them hormones to stop them going into puberty and seeing what it is like to hav a gender that their bodies are?
How his/her parents enable the process of gender change from such a young age I 'm neve sure that a child can really remembe.
How much is the child influenced by enabling parents who intend to be modern and accepting and do their best, but it is n't their best.
Maybe time and waiting and seeing would be their best.I was n't with Nicole in the nove when she nsisted on being accepted as a female and using the girls-only bathroom ( the alternative was the teachers, but she did n't intend to do hat).
Whatever she is in her head, under her skirt she is a male and young girls being what they hav, are n't they going to bothe to see, eve if they do n't have brothers.
Part of me nderstands that it is crucia that children who feel they are the wrong gender do n't go through the horrors of puberty and an adult body.
But then part of me feels, say they were away from enabling people ( right or wrong) maybe they would change, they migh enjoy their body and their power as teenagers and be happy in themselves.
