If they really do feel so strongly about it better at a young age and before puberty since it will make their transition easier. But doing it too early on a kid's whim can be devastating.
My thoughts exactly...
It's one thing to accept the change, its another to actively encourage it.
Kids at age 6 don't know what gay is. They don't know who they're attracted to.
Is it legal to brainwash your kid into being a neo-nazi? Because that's the first thing that came to my mind when I read this article... you are pushing the kid into one direction at a young age. By the time they are a teenager, the message is so ingrained in their behavior there's no reversing it.
