Gender dysphoria is something that is facing many more parents as their children start to indicate gender identity problems. Child Line is receiving 8 calls per day from children who are voicing concern and confusion about who they really are. As society moves towards an understanding of this subject there is at the same time a big backlash against it and an unwillingness of some to see this any more than a mental illness. Children need compassion, not rejection.
I had a conversation with Shelagh Fogarty on LBC about this very topic and talked in some depth about some of my experiences. A very big thank you to Shelagh Fogarty and LBC for the opportunity to talk.
