Transgender at Age 6: Family Embraces Decision to Let Daughter Live as Boy
breitbart ^ | Jon David Kahn

Posted on 07/13/2013 8:40:15 PM PDT by Morgana

The Washington Post reports that a Maryland couple has no regrets about a decision they made to allow their 5-year-old daughter to live as a boy. Now 6, Tyler (formerly known as Kathryn) has been living as a boy after his family made a public switch 18 months ago when Kathryn insisted she was really a boy. A psychiatrist told the family that the switch would be healthy if they allowed Kathryn to pick a boy's name and if they were to able find a kindergarten that would allow them to enroll the child as a boy. Tyler's mother said "It's not a phase. Anyone who meets him says, 'Yeah, that's a boy.'"

According to the report, the transition has been somewhat seamless:

Whenever the family watches television, Tyler roots for the boy characters.

His home looks like a house with a son. Karate gear, soccer balls, cars, trucks and pirate swords abound. At school, he's a boy. Plain and simple.

Jeez, you’d think they’d at least minimize the disruption and make Kathryn be Kevin or something. :)

Animals like these should be sterilized or shot before they get a chance to abuse children in this way.

At some point we're going to need to say 'enough is enough' and fertilize the ground with those who use children for social experiments. Doesn't matter if there happens to be 100 million of them.

Judgement Day is going to be a real hoot for those so called parents.

I have read of cases where parents put boys in dresses. If a father allows his son to be raised in dresses, he is no man.

If a mother allows her son to be raised in dresses, she is advancing her sick and twisted ideology.

I hate saying this, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t an isolated incident. Weren’t there a few of these stories popping up recently?

My 5-year old daughter insists she is a velociraptor or t-rex, depending on the day. Guess I should just let her be what she says she is.

Wait until “Tyler” starts bleeding every 28 days.By then she probably will have heard about “X” and “Y” chromosomes.

It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.

One of my children behaved like a dinosaur at that age, too.

I guess we should help our children get in touch with their inner dinosaur (or kitten) because, obviously, they are just dinosaurs (and kittens) born with the wrong bodies. I mean, if the child believes it is so, it must be so. *

You do realize that until Churchill’s time... little boys wore dresses until age 3-4... and ribbons in their hair.
Had nothing to do with sex at all, children and babies were seen as pretty and angelic. Think about why baptismal gowns are unisex.

And...I’m pretty sure Churchill would have happily explained it had no effect on his manhood.

One of my daughters said she was a purple cow at one point. Her brother (2 years older) has never let her forget it. They’re both in their 40s now.

Good thing we didn’t have to paint her purple and send her to school with a cowbell around her neck!

It’s an illness and perversion which is spreading. Parents are destroying their children.

Placemark for pingout.

Becase these days, parents want to be BFFs instead of parents.

It had to do with the masses of padding required before waterproof diapering products were developed. Little boys got to wear pants when they were toilet-trained.

Because a 5 year old knows best, right?

Dennis Prager brought up how we are told that young people support same sex marriage. Because 20 year olds know everything, right?

The culture that refuses to grow up is letting the Socialists continue to beat the "question authority" drum beat.

Question the authority of those demanding that the establishment be "smashed".

Peter Cushing was raised to wear dresses by his British mama who had wanted a daughter.

Next not only will they want to be unicorn ponies but hospitals will offer surgeries to make it happen.

The gowns probably did, although I used clothe diapers with a wool overlay on my son and he could still wear trousers... I’m not so sure the ribbons were just for camo purposes :D
