דניאל יוסף בן מאיר הירש
Suddenly care? Of course I care. I have always cared. If you pay close attention to my posts ( which seems to be a challenge for you lately ) I have never once said anyone should be denied. I haven't even said people should be delayed.Since you suddenly care about the regret of trans people, I trust that you care about the regret of trans people who were delayed or denied from being able to transition when they wanted... right?
All I have said is there is a deficit in care. There are children who are not being served properly, their long term interests are not being protected. Not all children, but there is a group that are in a higher risk for serious regret. Like "I should never have been allowed to do this to myself" kind of regret.
I have asked a question "why not wait till a child can consent before permitting irreversible body changes?" in order to demonstrate that there is a window of opportunity for certain procedures in order to get the best results with minimal risks. Part of that argument requires pointing out those irreversible changes, one of which is infertility. This is not to delay nor deny treatment, it's only to show that the children that are in theory consenting... are not able to consent at the age when they are making the decision.
I haven't approved of the bans that are being implemented in America. I have requested more specific regulation, not broad guidelines.
