    It is bizarre that six year olds are lining up to have a sex change. Absolutely disgusting and highly atrocious and if you people can't see it, I do not know what the heck is wrong with you!

    Not even teenagers are mature enough, they are hormonal wrecks!

    Yah, but going transgender means you depend for the rest of your life on highly advanced, affordable medicine - hormone treatments, monitoring, keeping the plumbing working, & on & on. It's like a cardiac pacemaker, or going on insulin for diabetes - you're on meds forever. There are real costs & medical implications involved too - is it a best use of the surgical teams, ORs, meds, to intervene surgically in a sexual self-image case?

    Children are too young to understand the commitment they're making - & TMK, there's no turning back. @ the very least, we - the US, the West - should probably implement a minimum age of consent. Anyone going through this process needs a lot of psychological counseling & support, as well as expensive & scarce medical attention for @ least a few years - tailing off (if everything went well) somewhat over time, but the pharmacological support will always be necessary, as far as I know.

    An aging population (in the West, less so in the US for now) means there is/will be - a lot of pressure on how the medical resources are allocated. & the people who voted Trump in are not receptive to the notion of the right to free expensive transgender surgery - which is still right @ the edges of what medical science can do. It will be a very uphill battle, & will take generations.

    Unless we make massive medical breakthroughs in implantable organs, for instance.

    This stuff shouldn't even been considered (hormones/surgeries) until at least 16, preferably 18.

    Possibly even longer than that.

    Yah, & if it's Sweden or one of the other European countries with socialized medicine, there is already political contention for scarce medical resources - drugs, surgical teams, OR time. If the amount being paid in now is dropping steadily - part of the demographic shift in European countries - there is less & less money to pay for increasingly complicated & long-term care.

    The other complication - if lots of Islamic refugees or workers are coming in, they are not going to be pleased to pay for what the rank & file would consider a gender abomination. & long term, the guest workers will settle in, get unionized, get politicized. As working people, they're not going to want to pay for what they likely consider to be profligate, Western expenditures of very scarce goods, for - to their mind - no very good reason.
