You write as if you are an older person but then say you don't know why we didn't hear about gender dysphoria when we were young. You must know as well as any oldie that plain old fashioned homosexuality was ILLEGAL, along with suicide and abortion, and feelings and emotions were brushed under the carpet of 'stiff upper lip'. Don't even mention gender dysphoria, because it certainly wasn't recognised openly then. I'm not saying I necessarily approve of today's bleeding heart society or that I think children should be encouraged in this until they have grown up, but the point is, we've had our turn at making the rules, and with some of them, we too made dreadful mistakes. Each generation gets a turn at deciding what goes and what doesn't in society, so why not just live and let live. I don't like 'gender neutral' toilets either. Men are so disgusting in their public toilet habits and the British are so filthy that nothing's kept clean, but I just have to navigate my way around that one and pee at home. For the rest I just smile and live my own life my way, and keep my nose out of the opinions and practices of younger people.
