Skip to comments.Why I let my son live as a girl: Mother of boy who returned to school in a skirt bravely...

Ten-year-old Livvy James loves her new school uniform, particularly the smart, grey skirt with two pleats and pockets decorated with hearts.
Walking to school on my first day back, I was nervous and excited, but most of all I just felt like shouting Yeay! says Livvy, who wore her shoulder-length blonde hair that day in a swishy pony-tail.
I was so excited that I didnt care what people thought about me. Even if people looked at me or were saying nasty things, I didnt care. I felt happy because I could be me and didnt have to pretend any more.

Now why would they do that. Both are in touch with their feminine side in an extreme way. The lesbians on the OTOH might do that especially the more manly ones.
not exactly a recipe for "the Greatest Generation," is it?
How’s that school working out?
The key to the story is the name Livvy. Neither male nor female.
This kid should be removed and the parents prosecuted.
And why did he not allow himself to be photographed with his transvestite son?
Never have so few, done so much, to help so many, have a really good laugh.
No photos, but he is mentioned.
listed as one of the parents.
But given the story line, that could actually be referring to a “she”.
Or a peacock.
Whatever “it” is, I thing it got cougared! Ain’t got no stones left anyways!
I think Livvy is play on the female name Olive or Olivia.
Hmm ... have they checked this child’s testosterone levels? I think I’d start there and see if there is a problem there before I went along with this.
Even so, I think it best to make the kid nut it out until he’s 18. Then he if he wants to pull a chaz then it’s his problem.
I can’t beliee they are seriously considering (female) hormone replacement ON A GROWING CHILD!?
When a person's idea of how they should look does not match their actual physical form, it can be caused by Body Integrity Identity Disorder. This condition affects a small percentage of the population and is commonly manifested by a desire to have an amputation of a specific body part. In most cases, the limb that the person would like to remove is actually in healthy working order and there are no physical problems with it.
Many psychologists and neurologists have ventured theories into what causes this type of thought. The common leading idea is that Body Integrity Identity Disorder, or BIID, occurs when the brain is not able to provide an accurate plan of the body. In this case, the brain sees the offending limb as being foreign and not actually a part of the person, thus the desire to have it removed.
Some medical experts have also come up with theories that explain a more psychological source of the issues. One of these theories is that a a person with BIID may have seen an amputee at an earlier age and this image has replaced their own thoughts about what constitutes the ideal person. Therefore, to become a better person, they feel that a certain limb or appendage will have to be amputated. Unfortunately, there are no known surgeons that will carry out this type of amputation without a medical reason to perform the operation. In the most severe cases, a person with BIID may do bodily harm to the limb that they would like to have removed, thus necessitating an amputation operation. Others manage to cope with the illness by using canes and prosthetic attachments to help them feel complete. Cases of BIID are often separated into those which have an actual physical problem and those for whom the issue is psychological in nature.
I wonder if this mother would be as supportive if her son wanted to remove an arm or a leg as she is of his illness as it is displayed. It's sad when a child has mental illness, and even worse when a parent exacerbates the problem.
“”But ya ought to thank me, before I die,
For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye...””
I can't believe a boy or girl would want to wear the clothes of the other sex without serious parental maladjusting. Hopefully, this kid will get the ultimate victory and revenge over this perversity by choosing to be a normal, healthy man when he comes to the age of decision and freedom to really think for himself.

Why would any doctor make such a prescription?
The father is never mentioned in the story nor are there any photos.
Try again and read slower.
“I can’t believe a boy or girl would want to wear the clothes of the other sex without serious parental maladjusting.”
I agree. If you read the article, this child does not sound like your average seven-year-old. It’s really a bit jarring to read his quotes. I think he’s repeating concepts and exact phrases as he heard them coming from his parents’ mouths.
