Christians Speak Out Against Blocking Puberty, Letting Boy Choose His Gender
A lesbian couple in California has decided to give their 11-year-old son hormone blockers to prevent the onset of puberty, giving the boy time to decide whether or not he wants to switch his gender.
Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel say their son Tommy wants to be a girl, so they've started giving him Hormone Blocking Therapy. The boy began taking GnRH hormone inhibitors this summer and will continue to do so until he is 14 or 15 years old, when he can determine which gender he wants to be, FoxNews.com reports.
Those who support the couple's decision say the therapy itself has only minor side effects, but Jeanne Brooks, a psychologist and professor at Liberty University who specializes in child development, told CP via email that she questions the validity of their claim....

"âThe huge irony of the LBGT movement is that they would claim that a person's sexual orientation, their choice of sexual partners, is something that is inborn and immutable that can never be changed, and yet a person's biological sex, which is evident in their anatomy at birth ... is something that can be changed at will. It just flips logic and common sense ... completely on its head,â [Sprigg] said."
