What should the minimum age be to be allowed to have a sex change operation?


It's reported that many adults who are transgender or had the full sex change have wanted this since childhood. if they were allowed, should children be able to change their gender before age 18?

    I watched an interview with a psychologist that discussed the puberty blockers and it makes sense. As you said, it gives the individual time to become fully aware of their gender identity before a permanent physical change is initiated.

    Children are able to have cosmetic surgery before 18 depending on the parent and doctors decision . Maybe the individual, case by case approach would be better.

    Maybe that's a good idea, but what about letting a boy dress as a girl and vice versa before that age?
