POLL: Should kids be allowed to choose their gender?

Many transgender activists believe that biological gender does not exist, that gender is a social construct.

Some believe kids as young as 9 can begin gender reassignment treatments.

What do you think?

Should kids be able to change their gender as young as 9 years old?

    Gods wisdom surpasses Mans every time . All children should be taught to love the Lord God with all their hearts , mind ,& strength . And love themselves as he created them . If children where taught this way they would not have a need to look else where for fulfillment . We have traveled so far from the truth that our poor neglected ( spiritually and lovingly ) have to fine themselves in the ways that are unnatural . We should weep for their sakes .

    Kids should be happy with what God gave them. You don’t mess with God!

    Children of 9 years of age can’t possibly make a proper decision about changing gender, they don’t reach pubertity until at least 14, or start to think like an adult until 18. Their brains just aren’t mature enough to be making adult decisions.

    I agree with Richard. 9 years old is way too young.

    I agree. I’m now 74 and facially look more like a man and have a deep voice, which I have always had since I was an adult. But, I don’t need to shave!

    Not only are children often confused about their identities before they are past puberty & at least 18, they are dealing with peer pressure. I have personally known kids who identify & behave as another gender when they are young, only to evolve into their birth gender during or after puberty. Parents who let the child play out their feelings often see that result.

    In the UK you can’t get married until your 18. You don’t have the right to vote until your 18 (used to be 21). You can’t have sex with a teenager under the age of 16. Psychologically what pressure are you heaping on 9 year olds? Of course there are instances where children’s body make-up changes but they are in the minority. Surely children in this day and age have enough on their plate without deliberately adding another worry, because that is what it will become. Thank goodness I am an oldie and don’t have to worry about this sort of thing – except for my grandchildren.

    The first twenty or so years of life we are in a state of discovering who we are. Gender and sexuality are closely linked and many of us are gender neutral. Adding the pressure of being expected to make such choices as a child is cruel at best.

    Puberty is a difficult time for children (and this can start quite early for some girls), and they need to understand more about the world, themselves, and their very important place in it before getting into the topic of gender. After all, the equality argument is still an ongoing thing (and that is politicised), and anything more than the basic understanding as a foundation there is too much. Let children be children, give them time to find themselves; we hit adulthood soon enough

    I have known several people who hve changed gender as they aged. Each and every one has said they knew they were different from the way they were dressed as children even as very young children. I believe children should be allowed to change gender with some adult guidance. Either professional or home adult who knows what they are doing.
