Word from the U.K. that two parents are sending their child to undergo a sex change operation.
A BOY aged 12 turned up at school as a GIRL – after changing sex during the summer holidays.
Teachers called an emergency assembly to order fellow pupils to treat him as female.
The lad, whose parents have changed his name to a girl’s by deed poll, arrived in a dress with long hair in ribboned pigtails. He is preparing for sex-swap surgery…
Transgender counsellor David Hawley last night paid tribute to the pupil’s “strength of character”.
He said: “It is very unusual for a child of that age to be that clear about what they want to do. She has had a lot of support from her parents. So I imagine she was comfortable with herself before going to school and now she is discovering it can be a nasty world, which is hard at that age.”
Psychotherapist James Caspian said the child would not be allowed hormone treatment in the UK until passing puberty. Meanwhile he and the other kids would have to cope with the shockwaves caused by the switch.
Mr Caspian said: “These children are old enough to have picked up a lot of taboos from society.”
Yes, and in this case the children have more sense than the adults. How can a 12 year-old have enough maturity to make such a drastic decision for himself? And how could sane parents send their kid off for hormone therapy and to have his weaner chopped off and who knows what else when he hasn’t even hit puberty yet? Why isn’t this against the law in Britain? These sorts of procedures cannot be undone should the boy regret it later in life.
Are we so blinded by our obsession with tolerance that we have lost our ability to protect children from parents such as these?
