Rupert Everett has said Caitlyn Jenner made a terrible mistake in choosing to transition and had “no clue” of what being transsexual involved.
The 57-year-old actor, who is gay himself, warned about the dangers of children having sex change operations and argued children should be able to embrace the “ambivalence” of their gender without resorting to medical procedures.
Everett explained that he wanted to be a girl while he was growing up and dressed exclusively as a girl between the ages of six and 14.
Everett also argued that resorting to hormones was a significant step.Well Mr. Everett children between 6 and 14 do not receive hormones but only socially transition, it is when they are older and begin puberty is when they are given puberty blockers which are 100 percent reversible. It is only when teenagers get old enough to make the important decision to go on hormones that they begin taking hormones.
“It's nice to be allowed to express yourself, but the hormone thing, very young, is a big step,” he said. “I think a lot of children have an ambivalence when they're very young to what sex they are or what they feel about everyone. And there should be a way of embracing it.”
