'nuff said.
That doesn't work when they have a stronger legal team than you do.

The strength of the legal team depends on the variety and type of wokeness of the jurisdiction

No, it doesn't work when parents are in opposition.

If the kid can't wait until age 18 to change, then the parent shouldn't have to wait until age 18 to kick the kid out of the house (and make the kid a ward of the State).

Lesson to parents, eat them while they're young and tender.
Teens will stick in your craw.

A new study on the subject. Summary: puberty blockers reduced suicidal ideation.

The study was based on living subjects, so it had no input from successful suicides, and it (at least the abstract) does not mention any information on unsuccessful attempts.

Hell, I wonder if puberty blockers would reduce suicidal ideation for all teens, not just trans teens. Puberty's a bitch.

It is, so let's not block it. Instead: accelerate it, get 'em through it, lickety-split.

Gotta read the study

20619 transgender adults aged 18 to 36 years

16.9% reported that they ever wanted pubertal suppression = 3485 people mean age 23.4 years

Of them, 2.5% received pubertal suppression = 87 people

What conclusions are we to draw about "lifetime" suicidal ideation from a 87 people, half of whom are 23 or younger, and all of whom are [at least recently] confused about their gender identity?

Speaking as someone who had suicidal ideation at age 47, I say none at all.

Just for the record, I'm glad you didn't. You're a good dude with a lot of friends in the world who want you to stay in it.
