It is psychosis to believe children can make permanent decisions about adult concepts.

Children are not able to make decisions about permanent or mature sexual subjects and it is a national psychosis to believe they can.  In the name of politically correct ideologies we are throwing our children under the bus and sacrificing them on the alter of the transgender communities. 

Adults are able to make these decisions not children.

Children naturally go through stages of understanding and experimentation on all subjects. Having them choose their sexual orientation at a young age is like forcing them to choose their adults vocations and mandating that choice later because they had a tendency toward it at the age of 5.

Its ludicrous, damaging and confining and does not allow a child to explore and grow in a natural way. 

Swapping out one forced ideology for another is still forcing an ideology. Pediatric hyper-sexuality exposes children to the risk of sexual abuse by adults, whom they all try to emulate.

Allow for counseling availability for all people for all problems, this is logical and humane. What happened to leaving this care to physicians and healers?
