Allowing Transgender Youth To Transition Improves Their Mental Health, Study Finds

This study adds to the growing research showing that affirming transgender identities at a young age yields positive results. The youngest of kids who assert a different gender than they were assigned at birth identify as completely with that gender as their peers. Using puberty suppressants to avoid taking on the wrong gender characteristics has no discernible consequences. And another new study finds that hormone therapy is safe for transgender adults too, so long as their care is monitored by a physician.
