Doctors are now considering allowing children to undergo hormone therapy at earlier ages in order to change their bodies.  Under current guidelines, that type of treatment is reserved for children 16 and older. However, authors of the new guidelines are considering striking that age requirement so children could begin hormone therapy earlier.

Im not completely a girl, said 7-year-old Maya, who is participating in the study. She was born male, but she began identifying as female as a 3-year-old.

at 3 years old i didn't know the difference between men and women. how can a 3 year old decide it's sex?
when i was a child i wanted to be a astronaut or a firetruck. 3 year olds don't think this way.

But the use comes from what is not there.
