cmv: A youth who believes they are trans should wait until they are an adult to transition

Serious question. Are you a doctor or medical professional of some kind? A therapist or specialist who works with trans kids? If you are, great, maybe that means you're speaking from some kind of experience that is not your personal opinion, which has been formed from not just a lacking of experience, but also potentially misinformation designed specifically to make you think the way you are.

whereas actual doctors and medical professionals/specialists seem to agree that transitioning is one of, if not the best, treatments for gender dysphoria. They agree that the earlier the process is started in life, the more likely the transitions person is to have a smooth and satisfactory transition. Puberty blocker medications have been around for decades now. After being first approved for use in 1993. I urge you to read up on them and transitioning itself. Before you trow around claims you're not backing up with research.

The use of puberty blockers in transgender youth is supported by twelve major American medical associations, including the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Endocrine Society four Australian medical associations, and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). In Europe some medical groups and countries have discouraged or limited the use of puberty blockers, including Sweden's National Board of Health and Welfare, British National Health Service and Finland.
