When Catherine Lee used to take her young child to the grocery store, other shoppers would often comment, "Oh, what a nice son you have, helping you pack the groceries."
She would sometimes just let it pass and exchange a glance with her kid. But other times, she would correct them: "Oh, no, this is my daughter, Kimberly."
"I tried to take him shopping to get girlier clothes, dress him in pink, help people understand he was a girl," Lee said.
But her child, now 16-year-old Ashton Zaine Lee, came out as transgender to his parents about two years ago, and Lee had to learn quickly that "this is it - this is my new reality."
Lee, a 46-year-old therapist from Manteca, is part of a growing group of parents navigating - sometimes at crash-course speed - the complexities of raising a transgender child.

These “journalists” probably can’t keep the he/she straight these days. lol
“Lee, a 46-year-old therapist .... “
That’s all I needed to read. The kids mother is a nutcase.
I was a man, trapped in the body of - a man! How boring. Basically, making it easier to be different, inherently makes being different attractive, especially to kids having a hard time conforming in the first place. Diversity - the more diversity there is, the verse things get.
Who will buy California from us? Mexico or China?
How can sterile, evolutionary dead-enders “flourish?”
I will stand by Torah: The answer is death!
Yep. The mother decided her son really was a girl before they even knew the difference and forced that on them. Sick.
Next to really protect the vulnerable transgendered 11 year olds out there Obama will issue a new order: anyone who objects will be declared an enemy combatant and droned.
Did anyone check her chromosomes? XX or XY? If science gives us global warming and evolution as opposed to creation, why doesn’t science determine gender anymore? I’m just asking.
Just one MORE reason to avoid Kalifornia.
EEExxxUse me. but transgender kid are NOT going to flourish, what ever you do...
I am a rich man trapped inside of a poor man's body. As I am not an American citizen and do not live in the US, do you suppose that I can petition Resident Ubama for foreign aid to help me achieve my potential as a rich man? It would only be a mere $1 million to help me self-actualize as a rich man. What is a million when one is running a trillion dollar deficit? Perhaps I should be asking for such advice from the DUmmies at DU.
Is this true????
Lol, I had a kid who thought he was gay in 9th grade talk about how he was gay. I told him, “you’re not gay! You’re in 9th grade! Who told you were gay?”
He looked at me like he never considered it. He recently graduated as a heterosexual. True story.
makes me vomit
The really annoying thing here is that there exist a small number of people with peculiarities of birth where their sex really IS an issue. Unfortunately, those people are now lumped in with wack jobs or slightly confused kids who would have turned out fine on their own, except for being egged on by their enablers.
They weren’t born transgender. They’re vein brainwashed by the pedophiles to believe it. Makes for easier molestin pickens.../s
