I STRONGLY oppose this Bill! Forty percent of transgender people have attempted suicide. The brain is not fully developed until the age of 25. Therefore, how in the world can someone make such a life changing decision before then? I was considered a "tomboy" until I was about in 9th grade. I cannot imagine how my life would have turned out if my parents would have made such a horrific decision for me! The parents that make this decision for their child should be considered child abusers. Children are exposed to so many inappropriate things at too young of an age as it is right now. We need to get back to putting our kids first and knowing what is appropriate for them instead of what gender we want them to be because they did not come out of the womb the gender that we were hoping for. Kids have enough to go through as it is with social media. We need to look at protecting them more by keeping them away from things that are not appropriate for them and perhaps we would not even be having this discussion. Kids go through traumatic events. Therefore, they should have professional counseling (and not just a school counselor) in order to be able to deal with what they have gone through instead of making them think that their life would be better if they were the other gender. God DOES NOT make mistakes, and the parents that are doing this to their children will have to answer to it!
The person(s) that proposed this horrific Bill should be removed. Hopefully, they will be removed from office with the next election! Let kids be kids!!
