Listen to our children
We want our children's voices heard
After the recent court case regarding Keira Bell which has left a devastating impact on trans children and their families we want our voices heard and we deserve this.
Why is this important?
Children who have gender dysphoria have already fought enough battles without having basic human rights also removed.
The self harm and suicide rate is already shockingly high due to bullying and long waits to be seen at Tavistock and I fear it will now increase as children will be forced to go through a puberty that feels alien to them.
We want the decision of hormone blockers to be decided by the child, gender clinic, endocrine clinic and the parent/carer, not by a judge that does not know the child and who has limited knowledge of transgender issues.
