Re: This is nuts... Carol
No, I didn't read beyond the article...it isn't the first time I've seen one about this case. Although the word castration is used inappropriately in the article, the content clearly indicates that the issue is chemical puberty blocking, interference in normal growth patterns and would later go into hormonal medication. Although the general concensus is that stopping the puberty blockers would revert the individual back into normal growth, this is new and they don't have a fix on long term brain development or bone density.
I hate to say it but where the actual cases in the past seemed to be limited, gender dysphoria is blossoming. In years to come, people might have to show their birth certificates to prove they were born to the sex they appear to be.
