Gender dysphoria should not be considered determined in childhood (WSJ article)


Debrah Soh has an intriguing story on p. A11 of the Tuesday Wall Street Journal, “The Transgender Battle Line: Childhood” with the byline “Psychologists have learned how to treat adults with gender dysphoria, but how about 5-year olds?”

The idea that a somewhat conservative piece would be written about a strange idea of political correctness for children, does show how far we have traveled.

Soh says that sexual orientation is immutable, but gender identity may not be so.  I don’t think I’ve heard that before.
