NHS: Most Children Who Think They’re Transgender are Just Going Through a ‘Phase’

The National Health Services (NHS) of England, the country’s publicly funded healthcare provider, has warned that most children who identify as transgender are experiencing a “transient phase.” The statement is reflective of “evidence that in most cases gender incongruence does not persist into adolescence,” the NHS report states. In light of the report, the NHS will adopt a more cautious approach to treating gender dysphoria in minors, banning the use of puberty blockers in patients under 18 but for strict clinical trials, the Telegraph reports.

I’m old enough to remember tomboys and none of them were yearning to have life-alternating surgery.
