One pressing issue we should never ignore concerns the safety of minors. The current wisdom is that minors are
- not old enough to choose to have sex with an adult
But for many, minors are
- old enough to allow an adult to perform irreversible sex change surgery on their bodies
Does that really add up?
Some believe it’s okay to perform irreversible surgery on minors while the medical establishment also says the brain doesn’t fully develop until the late 20s.
Though the brain may be done growing in size, it does not finish developing and maturing until the mid- to late 20s. The front part of the brain, called the prefrontal cortex, is one of the last brain regions to mature. This area is responsible for skills like planning, prioritizing, and controlling impulses. Because these skills are still developing, teens are more likely to engage in risky behaviors without considering the potential results of their decisions. » Source: NIMH
Apparently, some parents can now be punished or even arrested if they don’t affirm and support their kids’ gender choices.
Thank God I don’t have kids. I don’t know how I would respond if a child I loved and raised wanted to take hormones or perhaps undergo a sex change operation. I’d be worried they’d regret it down the line and maybe feel mutilated for life.
A possibility rarely discussed has to do with what Catholics call the discernment of spirits. This is a spiritual issue perhaps independent of biology so, of course, nobody in today’s scientifically brainwashed culture considers it.
One Catholic writer, however, Michael Brown suggests that some folks can be unduly influenced by a hostile spirit of the opposite sex.
For believing Catholics, Brown’s assertion might explain why some guys and gals desire same-sex activity until they return to their true selves. They are ‘obsessed‘ – to use the Catholic theological term – by a spirit that tries to fulfill its own desires through the living person.
So in everyday terms, a female spirit gets into a man, or a male spirit gets into a woman. Some contemporary thinkers – including non-Christian mystics – call these spirits “tramp souls.”
It’s also possible that living people connect with and influence each other on subtle, spiritual levels—men and women alike. This would probably better account for transitory same-sex attractions that don’t last—i.e. you’re momentarily seeing through the eyes of that person you talked to today.
Myself, I don’t know for sure. And I don’t care who’s gay, bi, straight or trans. But when it comes to children and their bodies, I believe we need to be exceedingly cautious.
If minors are not old enough to choose to have sex with an older person, why are they old enough to permit an older person to alter their sex organs?

Edit – just made some minor style tweaks and added my own hypothesis:
“It’s also possible that living people connect with and influence each other on subtle, spiritual levels—men and women alike.”
15:53 – just edited the portion “The discernment of spirits” for clarity and to better express my own thinking.
reminds me of Michael Jackson’s obsession with children and having them sleep in his bed and not thinking about anything but his own needs, not knowing how perverted his desires and needs were, neglecting the protection of minors

Maybe because he was so famous as a boy he stopped developing like most people do. A lot of people said he was like a child. Question is… childlike or childish?
