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.

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.

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".

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
