There is a view that when it comes to transitioning children a lot of people’s motivation is to make them ‘un-gay’. And that this massive uncontrolled experiment on children doesn’t elicit more than a peep of criticism is also because the kids would probably grow up to be or are perceived now as gay. The reason people think this is because there is research, I haven’t looked at it myself, showing that what are called ‘gender nonconforming’ children grow up to be gay. And have no problem staying their birth sex. That homophobia is the motivating factor in specific kids being transitioned and in this service being offered as widely as it is at all is a feasible possibility. If it is actually why these procedures are being done it’s a hideous crime.
