The Gender Unicorn and its horn are very excited about this.
Transgender children under the age of 16 should be able to undergo surgery without their parents’ permission, according to Australia’s top psychologists.
The Australian Psychological Society, which represents 24,000 professionals, says the disapproval of both parents should not inhibit a child under 16 from consenting to procedures.
Children can consent to have their genitals mutilated by adults, but can’t vote? This isn’t Progressive enough.
We should start putting kids in positions of authority so they can better exercise their ability to consent and make decisions. Give them government jobs, put them in charge of the military, let them handle foreign policy.
But childrens’ ability to make decisions must be assessed by ‘competent’ doctors, the APS said in an unpublished law reform submission, reported by The Australian.
It was only last year transgender children needed to seek the approval of the Family Court to have irreversible surgery.
Don’t worry, parents. Doctors said it was okay!
Doctors studied a lot, just like these psychologists, so you can trust them to make the best decision for your kids, their genitals, and their long-term reproductive goals.
If Dr. Front-Hole says your bloodline should end, you’re supposed to respect her professional opinion.
According to the peak psychologist body, mandatory pre-surgery counselling is often ‘an unnecessary burden’ on the child.
The APS said the child’s gender identity had likely already experienced ‘considerable medical oversight’.
That’s right. Telling kids about the consequences of what they’re about to “consent” to and telling kids the details of the procedure just burdens them so unnecessarily that it should be considered child abuse.
Doctors should just grab these kids, ask them to lay down and stay still, and cut their genitals off without a warning the moment the kids start acting a little bit like the other gender — to prevent this “burden” and trauma, of course.
Meanwhile, we should be teaching kids about how acting like the other gender is very okay and acceptable — to prevent bullying and trauma, of course.
Parents who disapprove of their children’s medical treatment pose a ‘significant barrier’ for the child, it said.
To overcome this, the body has suggested hospitals should have the right to petition courts as well as ‘advocacy’ to change the minds of parents.
Further, legal advice should be accessible so the young people can authorise their treatment, it said.
Starting with giving kids legal advice is good and all, but what we should be really doing in order to be really, really Progressive is to go ahead and just put these parents who are a significant barrier to the transgenderism of their kids in jail the moment they even question the identity of their own kids.
What kind of society are we if we let parents question the sexuality of their toddlers?
That kind of domestic abuse should be punished.
Once we jail the evil parents, we’ll let the people who actually care about these kids raise them and take care of them.
They’ll take good care of them.
