This is a sickening story as far as I am concerned. If there had been a life threatening illness, the hormone treatment would have been justified. What has happened to "be comfortable with who you are"? If this girl/boy (sorry I don't know what to call this transexual wannabe) wants to play hockey so bad, there are stars like Wickenheiser who play as graciously as any NHLer. Nowadays kids are so spoiled. If they want to be change their sex when they are in grade three, they are allowed to do what they want. Sometimes, kids need to just s*ck it up and do their work instead of wining.
The great Sir Winston Churchill once warned about perverted science. We are seeing truly perverted science in the 21st century now. IVF is now available to Octomoms and others with wicked sexual fetishes. Hormone therapy is now being abused. I would not have posted this reply had this story been not on the Canucks website.
I won't reply anymore in this threat.
Well said. I also find it ridiculous the masses of people coming on here and facebook and in the comments saying how "brave" they are and what a "feel good story" this is; as if it's the socially popular thing to do now to support whatever left field minority is having a hard time in life. They don't even think about what's going on, blindly posting "way to go!" and are quick to claim "bigot!" when anyone disagrees with them. It's now a fad to blindly support x minority. The lemmings need to get a grip and really think about what's going on here.
