  • I don't know any personally, but I would assume that there is some genetic issue. Gender Identity Disorder is not a choice

  • I feel really sad for them- imagine growing up feeling like you don't belong in your own body. I wish we lived in a society where they were able to be themselves.

  • You know...we dont allow kids to get tattoos at 7 and drink beer at 12 and we dont allow them to watch rated are movies 5 or smoke at 13.....there is a REASON for this! They are TOO YOUNG to make these kind of monumental, sometimes life altering, decisions!! THIS COULD be a phase and if it is it will now affect him in a hugely negative away that these parents allowed him such control on MAJOR life choices! THEY are the parents. THEY need to step the hell up and make these decisions. You KNOW that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF You would have a DUCK if these SAME parents were allowing the CHILD to decide to get tattoos and body piercings. Come on!! This is such a HUGE problem in our communities is parents refusing to step up an PARENT and stop letting the kids run the show!
