Thank you norma smile

I was under the impression they didn't want comments from women just the trans community.

Or maybe it's that they didn't want comments from feminist organisations, just trans organisations. Off to do it now!

The deadline is tomorrow. GIRES and Gendered Intelligence have already submitted complaints as stakeholders (they basically don't think the administering of cross-sex hormones should be based on age but individual 'readiness') but this consultation stage is open to the general public. GIRES are urging their supporters to submit, so the more submissions the better from anyone critical of the puberty blockers - cross-sex hormones path for non-conforming children.

Thank you for that information Stephanie.

The more the merrier!

Have done mine. I don't think you have to be that knowledgeable medically-speaking, just concerned about the pressures on young people to see the trans route as the only way, and also about the confusion around language (sex v gender) and lack of science and evidence. These are genuine concerns which the NHS should be held to account over.
