Some things to know:
- No one can make anyone gay or transgender. It is innate. Any thought about “grooming” is patently a lie. If it was, conversion therapy would work, but it doesn’t. See: https://bornperfect.org/former-ex-gay-leaders/
- There was a time when intersex kids were forced to have surgeries at the behest their parents or medical personnel. This occurred in infancy even before children certainly had any idea of what was going on. This has only begun to change in more recent times.
- Kids know that something is different about them and parents should listen to that without assumptions or prejudice. But, given the hostile environment for trans people, do you think a parent would want that for their child if it were not the case? It is silly to suggest that they would. Speaking as a parent and grandparent, I certainly would not and I doubt that others would also.
