It's wrong to medicate and mutilate children and teens

It's reprehensible that some seek to ban treatment that could help children and teens be comfortable in the sex in which they are born. It is not only cruel, unusual, and absolutely dangerous to medicate children by blocking puberty, it's extremely unjust to help them to mutilate their bodies via instruments such as chest blockers all the way to surgery which removes genitals. Some day this movement will be viewed with the same disgust and incomprehension as were the Salem witch trials, as cruel, ignorant, superstitious nonsense that ruined the lives of countless people. HELP CHILDREN AND TEENS GET THE CARE THEY NEED TO STOP THE INSANITY.
