Under Stephen's post "Sex Change Operations....for Kids," there's an ongoing discussion about whether Boston Children's Hospital is truly performing sex changes on kids, or just delaying puberty (not that any of us consider that a great idea either). But there's no doubt at all about what's being done to an Australian 12 year old, aided and abetted by a judge and the child's own mother.

A JUDGE has allowed a 12-year-old Victorian girl to start a taxpayer-funded sex swap, despite objections from the child's father.

Even though I am transgendered, I was shocked when I heard that a clinic in Boston was providing sex changes to kids as young as seven.
I wrote my thoughts about the pros and cons of offering a sex change so early here: http://www.crossdresserheaven.com/2008/05/a-sex-change-at.html

I believe there are better ways to avoid suicide than providing a sex change to children.

Hugs,
