Summary


"More and more teenage girls around the world are choosing to change their gender. In Quebec, the health system is quick to respond to their requests for medical transition by prescribing blockers, testosterone and mastectomies. These young girls often have a number of mental health problems, and many wonder whether we take the time to assess everything that's going on in their heads. Is it normal for a 14-year-old girl to get a prescription for testosterone in a matter of minutes? And what happens when they change their mind?"
