The Daily Mail has reported that a transgender couple is making arrangements to transition their 5-year-old son from male to female.
Hailing from the United Kingdom, Greg and Jody Rogers were both born female. Yet at 16, Greg choose to undergo the transition to male. Now the couple identifies as straight.
They claim that Jody’s 5-year-old son Jayden, whom they share custody of, has worn dresses for the past year. The couple insists that Jayden has made this decision and that they have not coerced the child.
“We haven’t encouraged Jayden to do this, despite what people think, and we are hurt at the suggestion,” Greg said.
An immediate wave of common sense was unleashed upon the couple as sex-change hormones will permanently alter the person. Many are questioning how such a young child could make such serious decision.
Even one of the parents expressed their concern, with Greg admitting, “Having been through this myself, I have conflicting emotions about her deciding she doesn’t want to be a boy any more. It’s not an easy life. People will always judge you and I don’t think there is a single transgender person on the planet who would push that on a child.”
Greg went further to declare that it was still far too early to begin hormone treatment and that in the meantime Jayden would attend counseling in order “to explore who she is.”
How can a parent, especially one who so fully understands the consequences of these actions, endorse such thoughts in someone with so little experience in life?
