Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

You agree with government mandating medical decisions against the wishes of parents and doctors? That doesn't seem to align with what I thought your general political beliefs were. And "100% agree" at that.  :scratchhead:

Republicans - all about small government, unless it goes against something they don't like.  Then it's ok for the government to get ALLLL up in your shit.

That sounds right. Can also be applied more generally too.

we don't let kids smoke until they are 18. we don't let them drink until they are 21. don't let them do dangerous jobs that could hurt them until they are old enough. but we'll let them mutilate their body... :thumbsup:

I would just point out a couple things.

1) Gender affirming care is a much broader set of interventions beyond permanent physical changes. Do you "100% agree" with banning all gender affirming care, or is your concern with the more permanent surgeries and other physiological treatments?

2) We do let kids mutilate their bodies all the time. Some examples:
* Ear piercing
* Haircuts
* I think tattoos are allowed with parental permission
* Roughly 2,398 medical surgeries and procedures done regularly on children (I made up that number but it's a lot).

If you're saying we should think hard before allowing our children to undergo permanent (or difficult to reverse) physical changes, then I agree! I think everybody does. So if that's what you're getting at I think it's fair but it doesn't really provide a defense of or reasoning for the original position.

did you really just compare a haircut to removing genitals?  :D  :suicide2:
