I'm not sure if you've read Cory's story yet, but here it is: http://canucks.nhl.c...vid=DL|VAN|home

I just came home from school because I have a free block, and I just read this article. Cory happens to be my teammate on one of the house team's in the Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association for Midget.

Cory has never said much in the dressing room since joining our team, but after just finding out about Cory's big decision, I now understand how this must have been a very difficult transition to make.

Cory, you're very brave for what you did, and you've gone on about this like a champ! I have mad respect for you and this is truly an inspiration to kids in school all around the world.

We have a game tonight at 6:15 at Pitt Meadows Arena Chrysler Gold. I'm hoping that some of you can come down tonight and support Cory. He deserves it!


Steve.

A fantastic story and a great job by the Canucks to feature it. It's stories like this that'll help break down barriers in the world and make it easier for anyone who is different to live their lives with their heads held high.

It's great that he's your team mate because you get a chance to support him and show him how proud you obviously are of him. That's what team mates are for! Good on you for being so encouraging to him.

Wishing young Cory all the best in his future, as I'm sure many challenges still lie ahead for him

It's awesome that the Canucks brought Cory to Rogers Arena, that was a class act move and a strong show of support.

I read the story & it really lifted me up. Sad to see some ignorant trolls are trying to comment all over it. They'll never have the bravery of young Cory.

Not an easy road-but good luck Cory in transitioning to how you truly want to be.

Shout out to Cory Schneider as well-represents our team with complete CLASS.

Really makes me think of how a kid at 9-years of age can make their own choice to take pills that diminish the effects of puberty

I guess when you know, you know..

Best of luck to her (him)

Don't normally like these kinds of stories, mainly because I don't really understand, but this one is truly heartfelt. You're very brave, Cory! Keep on keepin' on!

Short answer: You can't.

There is so much more to this than we are being told. Of course it just comes out as some feel good piece to which everyone must agree, or be labelled an insensitive, hating, bigoted, intolerant blowhard .... but feeding your child hormones at a critical stage of their development in an attempt to alter their gender?

If I'm the only one that sees this as CHILD ABUSE then so be it.

SHE could not have done so without HER mothers explicit consent. And the fact that she gave it is criminal.

Also, to the OP, the article mentions that SHE has yet to undergo any kind of surgery. Are you trying to tell us that you shared a locker room with a GIRL, who clearly has no PENIS... and nobody noticed?

Yeah right.

Hate on me if you want but there are a lot of people out there who agree with me in saying this is flat out child abuse.

They drugged their 9 year old daughter out of puberty because she liked Superman instead of Barbie.....

I totally get where you're coming from. At the same time though, the hormonal pills may have needed to be taken at a certain age in order to have any effect.

Still boggles my mind though.. I took a class on Gender/Sexuality in university and theres some pretty crazy stuff that go on in people's minds. Impossible to understand really unless you're feeling what they are..

I didn't think they would allow kids to undergo these changes at such a young age though in our more modern era. Must be relatively risk free now though.. if a tranny can end up looking like that Ms. Universe pageant contestant anything is possible these days.

Its not like the Mother got the hormone pills off the street in back alley behind a bar.

The only way to get them is with the prescription from a trained, qualified and registered Medical Doctor.
If ever it was deemed unsafe or unfit for a child to take such pills the doctor I am sure would have immediately objected.

You don't know what life was like for Cory, sometimes nature makes mistakes and if we are capable of correcting those mistakes great.

If a child was born blind and only after taking a pill through adolescence there could be a chance of this child one day being able to see would it be Child Abuse for the parents to give them those pills?

For me I don't see the difference. I am happy for Cory to find a way to live life on HIS own terms.

I played my last year of Midget hockey last year and I can tell you that if a player on the team didn't have a penis, someone would notice. It sounds bad, but be it through showering, swimming at a hotel during an away tournament or just changing in general it seems strange that no one would notice.

Have to agree on the borderline child abuse statement. I'm curious about how there were no restrictions on the drugs given to the kid for the purpose of which they were intending. Obviously the hormonal drugs exist for medical reasons, but this wasn't really a medical issue and yet they simply doled out the drugs to a 9 year old kid..

So you are qualified to determine what is and what isn't a medical issue? I'm curious if someone you loved was to live a life of mental stress (possibly anguish) and social anxiety and it could be effectively treated with medication, would you deprive them of that even if they were a child?

I'm sorry for all you people that think or agree with the statement that this is Child abuse, you are flat out wrong! Unless you intimately know more details than what the story offers and you are qualified to make such medical determinations (which I highly doubt anyone who has posted so far is) then you should be ashamed for posting such slanderous garbage!

If those two things do not apply to you, think for a minute what if Cory were to read this thread and see what you are writing about his parents, who I am inclined to believe love Cory more than anything in this world and only want was best for him. I guarantee they didn't take lightly the decision to give their child medication, and I am sure that decision was only made after consultation (probably many consultations) with medical professionals.

A 9 year old is, without a doubt, incapable of making a permanent life altering decision like this about themselves. If you think they are you're off your rocker.

And yes, I would absolutely deny a 9 year old child of being medicated simply because they're stressed. Are you kidding me? My 9 year old niece was so stressed that she didn't get to go to Disneyland last summer, maybe we should have put her on medication! I don't need to be a doctor to know that choosing hot wheels over barbies is not a medical issue.

Just want to point out that y'all appear to be on the verge of getting into an argument over a very complicated subject, based mostly on a fluff piece on canucks.com that actually ends with the sentence "It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Cory." (seriously).

If you're going to argue it, base it off something more substantial than this garbage, because it's a very interesting topic that deserves better.

So well said! Yes, there is always concerns, but by law we give doctors and parents the rights to be gardians over our children. As a parent of 2 adults in their 20's, I can only imagine the internal anguish they must have gone through to make this decision to even talk to the DOCTORS, as this decision would strike fear into any loving parents heart,
I can tell you this, if I had to make a choice over an amputation or my childs life, it would be a no brainer, and their decision would have been based on fact, and love.(Point and Metaphor) And not the fear of some homophobic bigit on CDC.........and don't bring god into this equation people, cause he/she makes decisions every day that we don't understand and never will. If you are into that sort of thing. Just try to love your fellow beings and do not judge until you have walked in their shoes!!!!! Sorry for the surmonizing!
Live your life Cory the way you want and live, laugh and love and ignore those others!

Your niece sounds like a spoiled brat, probably created by parents that didn't teach patience, there by stressing the poor little deary to death....talk about parent abuse! Great decision there!
