Preteen Shemales in the UK: British 12-Year-Olds Allowed to Start Sex Change Drugs
Posted by Ian on 04/25/2011 at 9:22 AM

CHILDREN as young as 12 are to be allowed drugs to prepare them for changing sex.

The controversial treatment halts puberty, stunting sex organs and preventing the growth of facial hair and sperm in boys, and breasts in girls.

The injections, previously available only to over-15s with gender identity disorder, are being made available to younger people under an NHS study after pressure from families and doctors.

Doctors admit most children with the problem do not go on to have a sex change, often turning out to be gay. But blocking puberty hormones can make surgery easier if they need it.

Dr Polly Carmichael, who runs Britain’s only GID clinic in London, said several under-16s were prepared to sign up for the jabs, until now available only in the US, Holland and Germany at that age.

She said: “The majority of our referrals are 15-plus. Of the children aged 12 and 14, there’s a number who are keen to take part.”

The study was approved by the *National Research Ethics Service, which oversees hundreds of NHS projects.
