A record number of children under the age of 16 in the UK identify as transgender. Prime Minister Theresa May has made cracking down on “transphobia” and “homophobia” a priority of hers, promising to “reform” the country’s “Gender Recognition Act.”
Louise Bowers, a senior deed poll officer, says more women are identifying as men than vice-versa. “The majority are teenagers, 14 or 15, but they go down to aged ten.”
In the US, a record 1.4 million adults identify as transgender.
