About the Gender Critical Support Board
#60
Hello and welcome to all our recent new members. All of you now have your memberships activated, so please come on into the member-only area where we can continue this discussion. You've gotten a couple of great replies already, but it's likely you'll receive even more info once you post in the members-only area.

I would like to add, for any guests reading here, how uncanny it is that all our stories have so many similarities. There just must be something to this, especially when we see certain conditions or qualities over and over again, such as autism, OCD, ADHD, trauma, sexual abuse or rape, bullying, same-sex attraction, giftedness, social problems such as awkwardness/loneliness/not fitting in, kids who do not conform to today's sex stereotypes, or being adopted or a twin, etc. Kids and young people deserve to have these things explored thoroughly before doctors slap a trans label on them and start dishing out blockers and hormones.

As far as Dr. Ito goes, I personally have no experience with him, nor have I even heard of him, but the typical advice from parents on this board, as you've already received from mom1211, is to stay far away from gender specialists. If they are experts in this field it seems they should be able to discern a "true" trans person from one who is claiming to be trans for attention or as a coping mechanism for dealing with other issues, however, it seems there are no requirements for labeling a person as trans other than taking their word for it. So basically, just about any one for these specialists will affirm any person as trans as long as the person tells the doctor they believe themselves to be trans. An expression I have seen used to relate to this situation is "When you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail." Please proceed carefully in regards to this doctor.
