Well, there is nothing more on trend than having a trans child...I just don't understand what goes through doctors and educators minds' when they pander to this destructive nonsense. People have completely lost their minds.

It's the ultimate low-effort way to a trophy child. Decades ago, it was high IQ, then creativity (I grew up during the creativity era), then "giftedness"--but all that involved work, and eventually had to show results.

Health care, unfortunately, is susceptible to special interests, to people promoting a treatment and an agenda, and the general population of physicians being overly trusting in their colleagues. Since the profession is self-protective and individuals are invested in the belief that they are doing good, it can be difficult to challenge. It will eventually correct, because there are mechanisms to right the ship, but that does not undo the harm, or apparently protect against the next fad coming along.
