I…I just don’t know what to say about this. I feel like I can only ask questions. Why would the parents let their child go through with this? Can an eight-year-old really be expected, or allowed, to make a huge choice like this at such a young age?
From the Telegraph:
Her mother Venessia, 42, said: “As a toddler she wrapped up her army figures and rocked them like a baby.
“As she started to talk, she’d say, ‘I’m a girl’. We used to correct her and say, ‘No you’re a boy’.
“By the time she was four she was insisting, ‘No, I really am a girl’.”
Her father Joseph, an engineer in the United States Air Force, said: “I had mourned the loss of my son. When I came to terms with it, I knew I had gained a daughter.”
I just don’t understand this. It’s just so…out of the ordinary.
