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
The public schools in Tucson have showers, and students use them.
They werent born transgender. Theyre being brainwashed by the pedophiles to believe it. Makes for easier molestin pickens.../s
I watched a movie last week and in the end it was revealed the killer had been made to dress and be his dead sister
and that is what drove him over the edge.
That conversation is actually illegal in California, Mass and IIRC, NJ.
Someone correct me because I’m probably misremembering all the particular states where that very conversation is illegal now.
There is no such thing as a genetic transgender, bisexual, homosexual or whatever. We were all born heterosexual. Any variation is a CHOICE by humanity.
Artie/chokes three for a dollar. Bwahahaha!
The fact is, some kids do it just to piss off their parents. If they want to be gay, great, but they have to make the choice to be infected by a multitude of diseases. A good friend of my family is a former gay stripper in New Orleans, and he contracted Hep C and a huge Ketamine addiction until he got “tired of the lifestyle.” Now he’s married to a woman.
The gay lifestyle frequently involves self-destruction.
Is this true????
That's what I was wondering. I can't imagine a bunch of high school boys going from 40 minutes of physical education into a classroom without showering first.
Why do they need “staff” to keep their showers clean? The delicate little darlings can’t clean them themselves?
Always involves self destruction.
Just let China have ca in exchange for all the U.S. treasury bonds they currently own.
- China gets prime real estate with a weak population that it can easily liquidate.
- ca gets the serfdom it wants.
- The US debt gets cut by a substantial amount.
- The Red States are relieved of their biggest economic and social burden.
It’s a win-win for everyone!
What I am aware of is transgender does not exist in nature or reality. It is a mental illness that is no longer allowed to be called a mental illness by the PC liberals.
Once upon a time in America people used to try to find a cure for mental illnesses and disorders. Now they enable them and sometime encourage it.
Society has gone to crap. And people wonder why I’m in such a crappy mood most of the time.
