Tommy, whose lesbian "parents" say is "confused" about his gender at the age of 11! (exerpts):  A lesbian couple in California, who say their 11-year-old son Tommy, who wants to be a girl named Tammy, are giving their child hormone blockers that delay the onset of puberty, so that he can have more time to decide if he wants to change his gender.  The couple's supporters say the hormone blocking therapy has only minor side effects and is appropriate for a child who is unsure of his gender.  "This is definitely a changing landscape for 'transgender' youth," said Joel Baum, Director of Education and Training for Gender Spectrum, a California-based nonprofit group.  This is about giving kids and their families the opportunity to make the right decision.  Critics of the treatment say, 11-year-olds are not old enough to make life-altering decisions about changing their gender, and parents should not be encouraging them.  They say its too soon to tell what the side effects of the treatments may be, and they say Tommy's parents, Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel, are irresponsible for seeking them and allowing them to be administered.  "This is child abuse.  It's like performing liposuction on an anorexic child," said Dr. Paul McHugh, professor of psychiatry at John Hopkins University.  "It is a disorder of the mind, not a disorder of the body.  Dealing with it in this way is not dealing with the problem that truly exists.  We shouldn't be 'mucking around' with nature; we can't assume what the outcome will be," McHugh said.  Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor of, said the hormone blockers also may pose a medical risk.  "I think that its highly inappropriate to be interfering with natural hormonal growth patterns," Alvarez said.  "Potential long-term effects can include other abnormalities of hormones, vascular complications and even potential cancer.  I think that if this child, as he finishes his puberty and teenage years, decides to undergo a transgender procedure, then there are proper channels to do so; but to do it at the age of 11 could be potentially dangerous to the health of this child," he said.  Tommy's parents, Moreno and Lobel, say they support their child and feel this is the best way for him to find an answer to a question he's been asking all his life.  They say Tommy, whom they call Tammy, began taking GnRH inhibitors over the summer so that he will remain a prepubescent boy until he turns 14 or 15.  They say they want to give him more time to explore the female gender identity that he associates with.  

Commentary:  Wow, look how quickly these people changed the name of this poor child; talk about push and shove!  There is no doubt he has been encompassed by all kinds of sexually promiscuous and perverted lifestyles, otherwise a normal 11-year-old generally doesn't pose these kinds of questions, and certainly not at a younger age!  I thank God for these doctors who are bold enough to say the truth about this outrageous behavior - child abuse!  These "parents" are obviously not as concerned about the "minor risks" and all of the potential damaging affects of this therapy, as they are VALIDATING their own sexually perverse behaviors through the life and mind of this poor child!  I have read locally about two children recently who committed suicide and they were both gays.  This lifestyle is not only an abomination in the sight of God, it is directly, or indirectly, the cause of the third greatest number of deaths globally.  My case in point: HIV/AIDS!  1.8 million people died in 2009 of AIDS (2010 stats not available yet, source:  Can you fathom how many people have died from illicit sexual behaviors since the first AIDS case, if 1.8 million people died in 2009 alone?  Isn't that proof enough of God's Holy Word?  Leviticus 20:13 says, "If a man lies with mankind, as he would with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination and they will surely be put to death; their blood will be upon them."  The same rule applies for "women with women" (Romans 1:26).  This is the law of God. God is our creator and, even though many do not abide by His laws today, His spiritual laws are still in effect.
