Pentagon doctors say 7-year-olds can consent to sex-change treatment

• American Military News

Multiple doctors working on U.S. military bases recently claimed that children as young as 7-years-old can consent to sex-change treatment before demanding that the Department of Defense announce a "gender-affirmative position" on so-called "gender diverse youths."

In the American Journal of Public Health, the doctors argued that children who show symptoms of gender dysphoria should be given "gender-affirming health care, such as puberty suppression and affirming hormones."

The doctors wrote that "human rights" dictate such treatment, adding that "youths…have an inherent ability and right to consent to gender-affirming therapy."
