have something to do with their sense of "gender," sexual orientation, gender roles, interpersonal/sexual experiences, etc. For any other condition, a doctor/psychologist would be sued for malpractice if he/she were to recommend such a radical course of treatment without 2/x
properly assessing and/or working with the patient for a sufficient amount of time. I do not understand how lawmakers--and especially anyone in the (mental) health field--have allowed themselves to be fooled so easily re. this matter; it not only is an embarrassment but also 3/x

would like to learn more about the (severe) harm you are unwittingly or knowingly causing *children/teens,* please watch: or or . You can also feel free to contact me at 5/5
