5. I don't know a lot about the UK and Transgender Care

but they are generally even more restrictive with transition-related care than the US. From what I have heard from my Trans brethren across the pond there are usually long waiting periods and require trans people to live in their identified gender for up to two years before they are given cross-sex hormones, surgery, etc. Here in the US, transition care for children is generally pretty conservative and heavily monitored by doctors, endos, and psychologists throughout the process. Cross-sex hormones aren't usually approved until children are about 16 or so and are often prescribed blockers (which are used for non-Trans related reasons as well) around the onset of puberty. This case seems to be more like a case of transition regret (which does occasionally happen) but the problem that I have with it is that it could have adverse consequences on the majority of children whom are gender dysphoric if it becomes more restrictive as a result. There is a lot of misinformation put out there and information not supported by evidence by people like JKR and TERFs whom are simply bigoted towards Transgender people.
