Why don't we give children MRIs to see if they're trans and then adjust them so they can live more of their life as they desire?

Because it's not going to show up on an MRI. It's not a tumor.

No one have every "adjusted" a transgender. It doesn't work.
Many children who have signs of gender dysphoria early in their lives, find that as they pass through adolescence they become more accepting of their natural gender. For this reason, most gender therapists discourage transitioning before the late teens. If the gender dysphoria doesn't clear up by itself, then the only reasonable course of treatment is to transition.

Because it's far easier and cheaper if their parents actually take the time to listen to their children, understand what they're thinking and feeling, and also always show their children that the kids can come to them any time and talk with them about anything without fear of ridicule, punishment, hostility, shame, or embarrassment. When a child says to the parent, "I'm a [gender opposite what their physical sex is]," instead of the parent replying with, "No you're not," the parent should instead ask them, "Why do you feel that way? What makes you say that?"

Nope. Children should not be given any sort of gender reassignment surgery until they turn 18, when they can decide for themselves. Before then, they cannot be capable of consenting to such a thing: as they are highly impressionable to adult suggestion, they cannot make such a drastic decision that will affect their body in a profound way for the rest of their life. Why on earth do you think we have age of consent laws?
But don't worry, this trend of performing gender reassignment surgery on children will stop pretty soon, once all the lawsuits come in when these children grow up. In the news today, someone is preparing to sue her surgeon for malpractice for performing the surgery on her when she was a child. There'll be many many more of these to come.

Children either have a penis or a vagina, how about they live as men or women?
Just how accurate is this MRI you are referring to? What if the MRI is not 100% accurate? That is going to be a major FU now isn't it?
You have no clue how to evaluate clinical studies. Do you realize only 150 patients were in this study? Do you realize how many factors must be considered in clinical studies? What is the exact age of each patient? What race are patients? The article clearly reads that caution is absolutely necessary, and that the trial is relatively small.
You are a freaking idiot!!

How would an MRI determine that a child has a mental condition and is confused about gender????

I don't think magnetic resonance can detect gender orientation. That's what puberty is for.

Trans people need psychiatric help, not encouragmemt
Listen, there are no laws dictating any way a male or female should act. If youre a male who wants to act like a woman than do it, I really don't give a ****. Youre still a male though and youre not a woman. Im not going to call you a she, ill call you a man who acts like a woman. You cant change your anatomy, you cant have kids just cuz you want to pretend you're a woman. Im not gonna stop you from living your life, youre not going to convince me that you're a real woman. You have a DIICK you are a man, its not my fault. Im not going to pretend you have a vagina. Get over it already, FUUCK
