Transgender ideology harmful to children

It was heart-warming to read Dr Owen Gallagher's letter ('Transgender Ideology Sweeping the World'). It is so refreshing to read a sensible, well-informed letter on this subject.

Why is society not rebelling at this ridiculous ideology, whereby poor innocent children are being encouraged to choose which gender they wish to be, thereby subjecting themselves to a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex?

Young children are vulnerable and totally dependent on their parents to take decisions for them until they come of age. They aren't considered mature enough to vote, drive a vehicle, work or sign a medical consent form. How can they possibly understand the implications of tampering with their sexuality?

There are so many decisions that they are not equipped to take as children, why on earth can anyone think they should take a decision on a change of gender before they are mature enough to understand?

Thank you, Dr Gallagher for shining a light on this darkness and detailing the harm that transgender ideology can do to innocent children.
