Previous podcasts provided information on the factors involved transgender causation.  Transgwender emergence usually occurs in childhood. This podcast continues from childhood transgender emergence.  What happens to these kids? One of the new opportunities for transkids is affirmative therapy including the Netherlands protocol that allows them to delay puberty so that they can decide about their adult gender. The episode also provides scientific information on the issue as to how long does being transgender continue from childhood into adulthood.  Critics of affirmative therapy and the Netherlands protocol say that transkids will naturally stop being transgender as adults so that there is no point in providing affirmative therapy. This episode provides a review of the science about continuance of being transgender into adulthood.
