Ria Cooper made headlines last year when she became Britain’s youngest sex change patient aged 17, after years of begging her family and the NHS to turn her in to a girl.

But now, having lived as a women for less than a year the 18-year has decided to change back in to a man after suffering huge mental anguish as a woman.

She has cancelled the full sex change operation that was scheduled for January and ceased the female hormone therapy that has seen her develop breasts saying that she has found the changes overwhelming and that they have made her deeply unhappy.

Scroll down for video Miserable: Ria Cooper has only been under going the hormone therapy to become a girl for a year, but already feels she has made a huge mistake and plans to return to being Bradley Britains youngest sex swap patient as Ria

Although Ms Cooper underwent a thorough psychological assessment and counseling at Hull Royal Infirmary prior to starting her sex change therapy she has suffered such torment living as a women that she has tried to commit suicide twice.

She told told the Sunday Mirror: ‘The hormones have made me feel up and down. One minute I feel moody and the next minute I feel really happy.’

‘The night I tried to slash my wrists I’d downed a bottle of Jack Daniel’s and just thought about how alone I am, and how my decision has alienated my family and how I will have to become a boy again to resolve it.’

Guys could not handle the hormonal crap we go through!

So now on forms we need 4 or 5 boxes for gender.

Currently jobless and sleeping on a friends floor, Ms Cooper, hopes that after she stops having her hormone injections and returns to being a boy she can join the Army and have a career in the forces.

Don't ask don't tell will REALLY apply here...LOL

two quick notes:
1. the UK taxpayers are being taxed (like in CommieObamaCare) to pay for this kid’s messing around,
2. the newspaper is calling him “her” and “Ms.” .... a double-dose of Political (if not anatomical) Correctedness.

what rot!

We have to get every Romney/Ryan voter to the polls next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every single one of them!

Maybe he/she should get the same thing my parents threatened whenever I wouldn't make up my mind about what I wanted... "OK, then you'll get neither." Bradley/Ria will get to choose a new gender neutral name like Pat or Chris and have to live as an it.

(Although my great choices was usually what type of sandwich I wanted while my parents drummed their fingers at the restaurant.)

I was born a boy, and you know a number of years ago I was at an amusement park and had use for the boys room and as I easily made my way there into I notice a line of approximately 50 women in wait for the girls room. I said to myself, boy I am sure glad I was born a boy and I have never looked back!

It is like giving someone a living rather than making them earn one, if s/he had to earn and save up for the operation, it would be more meaningful due to actual sacrifice on its part and thus would have less regret about it later.

This is exactly why you don’t pay for these types of surgery using the public dole, you make them pay for it itselves.

ps: just had to add, this is the same COmmieCare national health service that (almost daily) is written up for keeping people in long lines for essential surgeries, with some croaking before they can get repaired................and this is the same NHS CommieObamaCare that denies treatment (kills off) old people with curable or fixable conditions that Big Brother (or here, Big Sister) deems “not worth fixing because the old fart is, well, old).

Vote for Romney on Tuesday and get every other Romney voter to the polls, every last one of them too! Whatever all of Governor Romney’s many liberal faults may be, he has promised to cancel ObamaCare. If you plan on staying healthy or getting old (and not being Culled From The Herd by some CommieObamaCare bureaucrat or committee of BureauCraps), then please get out the R vote, every R vote. Thanks! (I want to continue to get health care that is designed to cure or fix me, and let me live out my allotted lifespan, without having Obama controlling my access to the doctor, or dictating when he can and when he cannot cure what ails me. Please everyone help get out the vote! Thanks.

Mrs. Garrison: Hello doctor, looks like I need an abortion. [sits on the chair and puts his feet on the stirrups]
Doctor: ...an abortion?
Mrs. Garrison: Yeah, I’ve got one growing inside me. Now, are you gonna scramble its brains or just vacuum it out? [a nurse arrives and her jaw drops] ...If you want you can just scramble it and I’ll queef it out myself.
Doctor: Mmister Garrison-
Mrs. Garrison: [correcting him] Mrs. Garrison.
Doctor: Mmrs. Garrison, you can’t have an abortion.
Mrs. Garrison: Don’t you tell me what I can and can’t do with my body! [gets up, goes to the nurse, and hugs her] A woman has a right to choose!
Doctor: No, I mean you’re physically unable to have an abortion, because you can’t get pergnant.
Mrs. Garrison: But I missed my period.
Doctor: You can’t have periods either. [Mrs. Garrison looks surprised] You had a sex change, Mr. Garrison, but you don’t have ovaries or a womb. You don’t produce eggs.
Mrs. Garrison: [sits down] You mean, I’ll never know what it feels like to have a baby growing inside me and then scramble its brains and vacuum it out?
Doctor: N-that’s right.
Mrs. Garrison: But I paid five thousand dollars to be a woman. This would mean I I’m not really a woman. Ih, I’m just a... a I’m just a guy with a mutilated penis!
Doctor: Basically, yes.
Mrs. Garrison: ...Oh boy, do I feel like a jackass.

I believe that there is no such thing as a human “sex change”. There is either a Y chromosome or not. A mentally disturbed person may want to roleplay as an “it” in the opposite gender and even mutilate and inject their bodies to make the mascarade more convincing to themselves and others but it ain’t a sex change. To make the taxpayers pay for such insanity is offensive.

Lucky he changed his mind while he still had his parts. But I suspect that it will be a long time, if ever, before all those female hormones wear off.

Ditto!

A lot of these people are just unhappy and think that if they were just "someone else" all the unhappiness would go away. But as a wise philosopher (Buckaroo Banzai) once said, "No matter where you go, there you are."

Change your clothes, location, hair, face or body; doesn't matter. You have to change your heart, your attitude, your goals and your outlook if you want to actually change.

But that is much more work then just having the doc do a "snip and tuck".

Treating a mental disorder with genital mutilation has never made sense to me...

Thank you. I am against this type of surgery; and, the reason is that it is just treating the superficial aspects of the persons mental disorder. I feel sorry for people who are going through this type of thing; but, allowing 17 year olds to decide that they want such a serious and consequential change is nuts. These people need help; but, I have come to believe that so do the people who support this stuff.

One day it dawned on me, after hearing somebody on t.v. talk about how they never felt like a "boy" and they always felt like a girl. It sounded a lot like a compulsive disorder where you just can't get a thought to stop repeating in your mind. And, then I thought that, that would be like the people who have the feeling that they constantly must wash their hands. Well, we don't chop off their hands and think that we have solved their problem.

But, with these poor folks, chopping off their sexual organs and then pumping them with hormonal drugs seems to be the only method they believe will help. There has to be something less drastic.

Welcome to our world, bro

LOL, good one. I can tell you that I had a lot of problems with depression for many, many years. I developed uterine cancer and had to have a hysterectomy. Voila! Depression gone. Hormones can really mess you up. Although, I wasn't happy about having all of my "lady parts" taken out; I must say that my life has been improved greatly for having done so.

Actually, there is a proper name for what people go through in these “sex change” operations: cosmetic surgery. Be it face lift, breast implant, “sex change”, or whatever, they are simply cosmetic surgeries.

Its sad, really, that the psych folk provide one branch of medicine guaranteed income by denying another group the counseling they desperately need.
