As evidenced by the UK investigation into Tavistock and GIDs, which showed a severe disruption in the accretion of bone density in children on puberty blockers, and provided zero evidence of improved mental health for those children, and considerable harm done to some - particularly the litigants in that case, particularly Keira Bell.There is very little evidence of the long term effects of puberty suppression in adolescence, as those that pioneered the treatment acknowledge. As to the medium term benefits the evidence is also weak.
But again, that’s a separate consideration to the participation of males who identify as females participating in female sports.
The vast majority of self identified trans women have not undergone any puberty suppression, and the majority are not undertaking hormone treatment at all.
Also as evidenced by Sweden's Karolinska institute discontinuing the "affirmation only" approach, and significantly reducing the situations in which it is acceptable to provide puberty blockers to minors.
