So Beavah, you're saying that kids are seeking surgery on their private parts without really needing it, just to get attention?I guess I should be glad my generation chose "Rock and Roll" instead. But I didn't know we were listening to it just to get attention. I thought we just liked the music.I am amazed at the level of sheer nonsense that I am reading in this thread, but I guess I shouldn't be.
I'm thinking you didn't understand his point. I think I speak pretty fluent "Beavah"
Kid's at the age of 8 are still trying to figure out who they are. Kids try on a range of personalities, interests and identities as they age. Qwarse brought up sex reassignment surgery. Beavah didn't mention it one way or the other beyond quoting Qwarse.
Personal story for all, take it or leave it.
I was a pretty effeminite boy growing up. Played with dolls alot because my older sister and cousins did. If somebody had pushed strongly the idea I could have been a girl,particularly my parents, I probably would have gone along with it. If my parents oushed a surgery on me at that age, it would have been a terrible thing. I'm biologically and psycholically male. I just had some traditionally female interests as a child.
8 years old seems awfully early to put a child through gender reassignment surgery.
Just my two cents. Hopefully I won't get called too many nasty ist words.
