Transgender eight-year-old reveals why she's much happier living as a GIRL
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 11/17/2011 | HANNAH ROBERTS

Posted on 11/17/2011 1:35:41 PM PST by massmike

Danann Tyler, who was born male but now dresses as a little girl and has long hair, says she was bullied at school and felt hurt by other children telling her she was a boy.

The eight-year-old MTF (male to female) from Orange County, California, is the subject of a new feature length documentary about transgender people.

In a special edition of the Anderson talk show, 'Children &Teens Caught In The Wrong Bodies' which is scheduled to air on Wednesday, she told journalist Anderson Cooper: 'My school, people were telling me that I was a boy and it made me really sad.'

Danann's parents, Sarah and Bill Tyler, who also appeared on the show, said they did not know what was wrong with their son when, from aged two, he insisted he was a girl.

By age six Danann was so unhappy she was threatening to hang herself.

Doctors diagnosed the child as bipolar, dyslexic and ADHD and prescribed various medications.

The Tylers consulted gay friends, who said that she was probably more than just a gay child.

Looks like I learned a new acronym today: “MTF”...assume there’s also a “FTM”. And probably other combinations and permutations I cannot fathom.

Not that it’s a good thing.

I'm sure Miss Cooper can relate.

I think the whole trying to kill themselves indicates extreme mental illness. Something that seems to be celebrated on the left these days.

I’m A Boy
(Pete Townshend)

One girl was called Jean Marie
Another little girl was called Felicity
Another little girl was Sally Joy
The other was me, and I’m a boy

My name is Bill and I’m a headcase
They practice making up on my face
Yeah, I feel lucky if I get trousers to wear
Spend ages taking hairpins from my hair

Chorus 1
I’m a boy, I’m a boy
But my ma won’t admit it
I’m a boy, I’m a boy
But if I say I am I get it

Put your frock on Jean Marie
Plait your hair Felicity
Paint your nails, little Sally Joy
Put this wig on, little boy

Chorus 1

I wanna play cricket on the green
Ride my bike across the stream
Cut myself and see my blood
I wanna come home all covered in mud

Chorus 2
I’m a boy, I’m a boy
But my ma won’t admit it
I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m a boy
I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m a boy
I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m__ a__ boy__

[“felt hurt by other children telling her she was a boy. “]

As a parent, I’d be ticked if school officials made my kid call him anything else.

I wonder if those poor kids are being punished for saying the obvious? I don’t think little boys should be allowed to attend school dress as a girl. It’s inappropriate.

These people created a “reality” which is upside down—children will believe what their “parents” teach them and they will model themselves after these “caretakers”. Where is the male role model??????? that ALL BOYS NEED......that is the whole lie of homosexuality....it is built on emotional/physical abuse in the formative years—where children are taught lies as truth and hatred for their own bodies by lack of positive role model and a hatred of God’s design of human beings (hatred of Nature Law Theory and common sense).

To pervert nature to this degree, child abuse was extreme. These “parents” should be in prison.

Our company has a freak who recently decided he wanted to be called by a woman's name, and caused on-going issues, mostly with the ladies in our company since he is allowed to use the women's restroom. In actuality, he is really acting out a drag queen persona that he started at a local homo-club, but our HR department bent over backwards and have spent company money to change name-plates, IT, and retrofit the women's bathrooms for increased privacy in the stalls.

The guy is about 400 lbs, a complete slob, and is as bad a drag queen as he is in everything else he does.

Today's drama is that one of our female employees heard some groaning from a shower in our workout facility, looked over and saw this naked fat slob facing forward, curtains open, johnson dangling and washing it's hair. A few ladies complained to HR, but our HR department is partially to blame for this. Sick to say the least.

What would a 6 year old know about killing themselves unless they were raised in a horrendous household? A 2-7 year old knows nothing about what they should be, ultimately. let puberty set in and nature take its course. Have they actually had this boy’s penis removed?

I feel sorry for the people who actually are born with ambiguous genitalia and the parents who have to choose one way or another. For them to be lumped in with all of the make believe transgenders is a shame.

If people keep complaining it sounds like your PC company will just take away the little perks like your gym and showers instead of fixing the ‘dead weight.’

Even worse, instead of just laying him off, they can “save face” and layoff about 10 people, including him, and call it a Reduction Of Force which is very common.

I find it hard to believe that on his/her own an 8 year old would have any clue about being transgendered.

They claim that the child was able to tell them that he is a girl at a tender age of two:

what was wrong with their son when, from aged two, he insisted he was a girl.

I'm not sure how many two year old children are able to come to that conclusion on their own and then properly explain that to an adult. If I was saying anything when I was 2 years old I'd certainly not want to hinge my whole life on those words. Besides, what did I know at that age about the world?

Around 18 to 24 months children can start forming simple sentences such as up now or carry me. By age three they will be able to carry a conversation and most of what they say will be understood. (link)

If the parents believe that a 2 year old child can - and should - make informed decisions of this sort then they need their own heads checked. My personal suspicion is that they wanted a girl all along, but when a boy was born they decided to "fix" him.

“Doctors diagnosed the child as bipolar, dyslexic and ADHD and prescribed various medications.

The Tylers consulted gay friends, who said that she was probably more than just a gay child.”

So, they took the advice of “gay friends” over the advice of medical professionals. That’s great parenting right there.

How does a six year old know that he is anatomically different from a girl? Did he see his older brother naked? What happens when he goes to school? Girls bathroom or boys?

I don’t know about this transgender stuff. My very Conservative boyfriend has a little nephew who is definitely Gay. I do know that a friend of mine would tell me stories about how her son would tell her things that happened, and these were events that happened prior to him being born. Other times he would tell her things that were going to happen...and he was very accurate. So who knows.

This is child abuse.
If parents and doctors do not give a 6-7-8 year old the appropriate medical care they should be charged with a crime. A human being is either male or female. Not in between not half and half and not the opposite of how they actually were born. Are there no adults left?

transgender is a made up phony term used by sick people to further sickness in other people..
If you believe you are a dog and you are a human you are mentally ill. If you are a male human and you believe you are a female human being you are mentally ill.
The human race has lost its way..........

You know, sometimes kids really do have interests of the opposite sex when they’re little. If parents handled it calmly and didn’t go crazy one way (yelling at a boy for playing with a doll for instance) and didn’t give in the other way (oh ok, you can be a girl now) then that preference would probably just manifest itself properly when they’re older IE an attraction to the opposite sex.

Hello, weird liberals, small kids haven’t hit puberty yet. They just want to be kids and they like all kinds of different things when they’re little. YOU, in fact, are the ones encouraging them to be someone they are NOT by ENCOURAGING THEM to change their sex!

There is no such thing as a transgendered 8 year old. Only parents who should have the child taken away and raised in a mentally healthy family.
