To repeat what I said in another forum:
The problem is this:
An 8 year old transgendered? That's absolutely disgusting, and represents a catastrophic parenting failure. Are my words too strong? Nope. We don't let people decide whether to drink until they're 21. We don't let people vote until they're 18. We don't let people operate a car until they're 16 (and that only in some states). We don't let people consent to sex until they're around 16 and that has limits. But we're going to trust the life experience of a 6 year old (according to the article, the child in this example was 8 but had "transitioned" 2 years prior.) to decide to just change sex? By the way, if they do any surgery or hormone treatments that kid's sterile for life. But totally cool because it supports today's modern, gender bending culture.
I'm deeply disappointed in the BSA over this, because supporting child transgenderism is, in my view, the same as supporting child sexual abuse. It sexualizes a child in order to satisfy the "progressive" views of the parents, and is NOT in the best interest of the child.
If this kid is legitimately a boy trapped in a girl's body then she can sort that out when she's old enough to make decisions and understand the consequences, presumably around 18. The BSA shouldn't even have to be involved.
