A Toronto doctor has raised eyebrows and criticism for writing most transgender-identifying children grow out of those feelings.
And he says the strongest opposition is from adult transgenders intervening in the lives of children of to further their own agenda.
Dr. James Cantor — director of the Toronto Sexuality Centre and author of the blog Sexology Today — compiled results from a dozen medical studies that say the majority of kids stop feeling transgendered past puberty.
“There are groups — and I hate to say activists because they are extremists — are upset because they don’t like the results. Activists are not a meaningful representation of a community,” Cantor said.
