Doctors who work for the Department of Defense apparently believe that children as young as seven years old are capable of making decisions for themselves when it comes to taking hormones and puberty blockers.
Has everyone working in Washington, DC completely lost their minds?
Decent parents wouldn’t leave a seven-year-old child at home without a sitter, but these doctors think a child of that age can make life-altering decisions about their gender.

Pentagon doctors claim 7-year-olds can make decisions to be injected with hormones, puberty suppressants
Health providers at U.S. military bases, some of whom are involved in treating military-connected minors, blasted the idea of waiting before injecting kids diagnosed with gender dysphoria with puberty blockers and hormones.
The DoD providers said in the March edition of the American Journal of Public Health that the only pathway for children of military members who present with gender dysphoria symptoms is to immediately move towards “gender-affirming health care, such as puberty suppression and affirming hormones.”
The doctors said that on the basis of “human rights,” “youths… have an inherent ability and right to consent to gender-affirming therapy.”
They went so far as to claim 7-year-olds can make their own medical decisions.
The authors – David A. Klein, Thomas Baxter, Noelle S. Larson as well as clinical psychologist, Natasha A. Schvey, PhD – demanded the military train all of its providers on their ideas on gender medical interventions for minors, despite acknowledging that 53% of military-affiliated physicians in the Department of Defense health system indicated they would refuse to prescribe hormones regardless of any training.
Klein, Schvey and Baxter work at Travis Air Force Base in California, and Larson — a pediatric endocrinologist – works at the Department of Pediatrics at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
I don’t know what it is about that building. but, every time someone enters the pentagon, their I.Q. seems to take a massive hit.
This is NOT “Gender Affirming Healthcare”! This is Mental Illness which needs to be treated as such. Why is it you have to be 18 to buy cigarettes and only 7 to mutilate your body? The government is infested with mentally ill idiots!
