I am personally against the "affirmation-only" model as some people do regret transitioning. Kids are also more likely to be easily influenced/pressured by adults. But criminalizing all physical transition for minors is going to far. I do think standards of care should be developed for trans kids, including being able to identify kids likely to regret transitioning in the future. Also in most states you can get a tattoo at 16. If you're old enough to get a tattoo, you're old enough to start hormones.

Would you agree on an established age limit for cross-sex hormones?

That's good to hear. What do you think the age limit should be?
