A well-known transgender activist is recommending that children should be taking puberty blockers until they reach an age where they can decide their own gender preference.

Lauren McNamara is an atheist YouTube personality who goes by the name “Zinnia Jones.” McNamara suggested that children should be automatically given the option to be put on puberty blockers since, McNamara says, they already agreed to a “de facto consent” to what McNamara characterized as “permanent and irreversible changes” brought on by the natural process of puberty.

“If children can’t consent to puberty blockers which pause any permanent changes even with the relevant professional evaluation, how can they consent to the permanent and irreversible changes that come with their own puberty with no professional evaluation whatsoever?” the transgender influencer wrote.

In a storm of Twitter posts, the trans activist, who has been treated with hormone replacement therapy since September 2012, insisted “inability to offer informed consent or understand the long-term consequences is actually an argument for putting every single cis and trans person on puberty blockers until they acquire that ability.”

The “Zinnia Jones” YouTube fan page says the commentator was “assigned male at birth” and given name Zachary Antolak in 1989 in Chicago but “became aware of her sexuality as a gay male at an early age.”

McNamara has been posting “numerous videos critical of religion, especially in regards to its attitudes towards LGBT people,” the page continues.

McNamara’s remarks were sparked after a U.K. case concerning a 23-year-old biological female, Keira Bell, emerged in which she took the British National Health Service’s gender-identity youth clinic — Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust —  to court for recommending that she be given puberty blockers when she was only 16-years-old.

Bell went on to regret getting treatment to “become a male” and asserted to the court that the clinic should have “challenged [her] more” over her choice to transition to a male when she was underage.

The High Court then ruled that minors under 16 being treated for gender dysphoria are “unlikely to be able to give informed consent to undergo treatment with puberty-blocking drugs.”

The court went on to also say “it is doubtful that a child aged 14 or 15 could understand and weigh the long-term risks and consequences of the administration of puberty blockers,” although, “in respect of young persons aged 16 and over, the legal position is that there is a presumption that they have the ability to consent to medical treatment.”

McNamara, who writes a blog called Gender Analysis launched in 2014 to examine “transgender science,” said puberty is now “optional” because technology was formulated to “enable deliberate choice between natal puberty and puberty induced by cross-sex hormones.”

McNamara later went on to argue in a tweet that if the proposition “seems excessive” there’s also an alternative to giving the puberty blockers, which are controversial prescription drugs used to delay puberty in children. McNamara suggest only prescribing the hotly debated regimen to kids who have “gender dysphoria” and could benefit from them.

“Now on the other hand, if this seems excessive, I suppose we could *only* give puberty blockers to those few adolescents with diagnosed gender dysphoria where this treatment is most likely to have a clear benefit…,” McNamara wrote.
