The proposed "guidance document" ignores biological reality in favor of an anti-science ideology which inflicts irreparable physical and emotional harm on children. It is not "scientific" to pretend that genetically-coded sexuality does not exist and that gender is a purely artificial and arbitrary construct. It is not "enlightened" or "compassionate" to exploit temporary feelings of gender confusion (which are common among adolescents) in order to subject teens and even pre-teens to manipulative "counseling" that pushes them toward gender dysphoria (and even to agreeing to irreversible genital and other physical mutilations, which many victims subsequently regret), while criminalizing attempts by any caring adults in their lives to help them be comfortable in their body. Moreover, the document violates legally established parental rights, infringes on basic freedom of speech, subjects children of both genders to invasions of private spaces by members of the other, and requires biological females to compete in sports against biological males. If they are adopted, they will be challenged in court and invalidated, but only after considerable tax money is wasted in trying to defend this ideologically motivated folly.
