Enough fighting over Trump. Let's try something else.

I keep seeing stories of younger and younger kids "identifying" as transgendered....some as young as 3.


Where's the Couch on this?

Are children capable of making decisions like this? If so, at what age?

What would you do if your 5yr old son came to you and said he was a girl? Not that he was attracted to boys, or wanted to wear girls' clothes and play with girls' toys...that they were really a girl inside?

I wouldn't get mad or angry at him. I'd just let him grow out of it. It's a phase he's going trough. Kids change their minds all the time.

With that being said, if people can't consent to have sex until the age of 18, they shouldn't be able to have operations and hormone therapies that ruin their lives before they finish elementary school. I'm not advocating lowering the age of consent. It should definitely always be 18.

Joe: I know. Common sense and basic logic aren't friends of progressives. However this tread isn't for that so this shall be my last reply regarding that topic

lol, sorry...no shortage of political discussion. Content to leave private personal decisions with those forced to make them.

My question is, exactly what are those 3 year olds being exposed to that have them even thinking of such things? Sounds more like child abuse to me. Totally ridiculous.

Liberal media and former presidents romanticizing mental illnesses. I mean you have the left telling children that THIS is normal and okay

Such a degenerative society created and forced by liberal media. But conservative shows such as Last Man Standing starting Tim Allen, which was the 2nd highest rated show on the Network, is cancelled because it was a conservative program.

Why? I don't disagree with what he said. You folks might better understand liberals and/or progressives if you actually read liberal and progressive op/ed pieces and conversed with liberals and progressives, instead of having Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and that InfoWars nutter lie about who liberals and progressives are and what their opinions are.

Now this opinion, not so much. Do you really think that these people's sexuality was manufactured by the media? That they had no say in it? And what does any former president have to do with the people in the pic? Please spell out your cause and effect analysis for us.

Still in the "you raise yours your way and I'll raise mine my way" camp.

Dude, I'm actually proud of you for saying that. That is a real actual 'liberal' stance for a change --instead of a wimpy modern liberal feelings protector idea! You do your thing, I'll do mine.. wow what a concept! Goodness if we can get the rest of the world to feel like you do about this issue, about many many more issues, the world really would be a better place.

Um, hate to bring it up, but you just posted that some folks were committing child abuse by raising their kids "their way" with regard to this issue. That isn't "you raise yours your way and I'll raise mine my way" at all. It is the opposite of that.
