This story illustrates exactly why children should not be allowed or encouraged to change genders. Their brains aren’t even finished developing yet and they could eventually change their minds. This is going to be featured on 60 Minutes this weekend.
The Independent has the story:
12-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO TRANSITIONED TO FEMALE CHANGES HIS MIND TWO YEARS LATER
An Australian schoolboy who decided to transition into a female has changed his mind two years later.
At just 12-years-old, Patrick Mitchell, begged with his mother to begin taking oestrogen hormones after doctors diagnosed him with gender dysphoria – a condition where a person experiences distress because there is a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity.
“You wish you could just change everything about you, you just see any girl and you say I’d kill to be like that”, Mitchell told 60 Minutes…
In the beginning of 2017, teachers at school began to refer to him as a girl which triggered Mitchell to question if he had made the right decision.
“I began to realise I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he told Now To Love.
As a result, Mitchell confided in his mother and explained that he wanted to transition back into a boy.
“He looked me in the eye and said ‘I’m just not sure that I am a girl’”, his mother explained.
Here’s a teaser video:
There will be other kids like him in the future who waited too long. It’s sad.
