Yes, there’s always a hidden back story, like
the parents wanted a girl. They UK media
would never write about these details.
Doesn’t fit the militant agenda.
Like naming your baby daughter Stanley because you wanted a son?
It’s darn hard to really raise a boy bent on being a boy, as a girl. Usually the gender instinct is pretty strong. He’ll take the Barbie dolls and pretend they’re guns, going rat-a-tat-a-tat. His girl counterpart, in the meantime, will be having tea with G.I. Joe.
Sometimes things go out of kilter for a myriad of cumulative reasons, the boy fixates on girl things and makes them his world. Or vice versa. I have a hunch that family cruelty plays a role in a lot of these scenarios, where people feel vastly uncomfortable with who they are so they escape to a fantasy identity.
Don't forget that BHO's grandfather named BHO's mother Stanley.
I wonder what that did to her head?
