Turning Her Son into Her Daughter

You knew this was going to happen. It’s happening in Texas, under the watchful eye of Texas courts. A woman who is involved in an especially bad divorce case has chosen to turn her son into a girl. The boy is 6 years old. The state of Texas knows all about it and is siding with the mother.

Since it is blindingly obvious that transgenderism is a belief, one that has no relation to biological reality-- not just genital anatomy but chromosomal makeup-- it was only a matter of time before parents would feel free to transform their boys into girls and their girls into boys. The case in point is singular, and thus anecdotal. And yet, we must ask how many of those who belong to the transgender movement have been actively playing God, by brainwashing children into gender dysphoria.

Tyler O’Neil has the story:

In a particularly tragic divorce proceeding, a mother who forces a transgender identity on her 6-year-old son James is accusing the boy's father of child abuse because he refers to the boy as male. The father responded by offering James a choice of boy's clothes and girl's clothes, and the boy constantly chooses the male options while away from his mother.

Pediatrician Dr. Michelle Cretella generously suggests that the mother might be suffering from a psychiatric illness, Munchausen by proxy. It’s nicer than suggesting that this mother is running a vendetta against her husband, and perhaps against all toxic males. How better to punish her husband than to turn his son into a daughter… so that the boy does not turn out like is father.

O’Neil writes:

Dr. Michelle Cretella, vice president of the American College of Pediatricians, told PJ Media that the mother may be suffering from a mental disorder. "This case is consistent with a diagnosis of Munchausen by proxy," she said.

"This is a disorder in which an adult feigns either physical or psychological condition in a child for their own subconscious reasons," the pediatrician explained. "Most often the perpetrator is the biological mother and she often has a background in health or medicine."

"In the case of imposing gender dysphoria on a son, there are cases in the scientific literature of severe maternal depression triggered in a mother longing for a daughter," Cretella added. "The mother's depression lifts when the boy dresses and acts as a girl. This has been termed 'gender mourning.'"

As for the salient point, the child’s wishes, he prefers being a he.

Walt Heyer, a speaker and author who once identified as transgender and now runs, drew attention to James' case last week in a Federalist article. As Heyer noted, a medical diagnosis of "gender dysphoria" involves a "persistent, consistent, and insistent" identification with the gender opposite one's birth sex. But James's identity is inconsistent.

"Meanwhile, Dad isn’t seeing signs of gender dysphoria. In the father’s home, James appears to be a normal boy and doesn’t identify as a girl. He has a choice of boy’s or girl’s clothes there, and he chooses to dress as a boy," Heyer reported. "The fact that James changes gender identity depending on which parent is present makes the diagnosis of gender dysphoria both dubious and harmful."

In fact, Cretella told PJ Media that not only is James "happy behaving like a stereotypical boy," but "one time he actually cut up the girl clothing" his father provided.

Mom does not care about the boy’s preference. She forces him to dress and behave like a girl. You have to wonder how this goes down in the first grade:

"Whenever he's with his mother, his mother addresses him by the name Luna and only permits him to dress in girl clothing," Cretella added. The mother chose a therapist who specializes in gender transition, and the therapist seems unwilling to acknowledge James's masculine identity.

"The fact that the therapist ignores the obvious amounts to child abuse," the pediatrician told PJ Media. "This therapist and the mother are conditioning James to identify as transgender and to begin the road of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. This will destroy his life."

Of course, the mother has found a therapist who specializes in transgender issues and who is totally supportive of the sex change. Inexplicably, the state of Texas is allowing this to happen:

Sara Scott, a family friend who runs the website, explained that "in Texas the mother has complete rights to psychiatric/psychological care and does not need the father's consent. The therapist specializes in aiding transition. Jeff [the father] has not been allowed to get a second opinion."

Scott also told PJ Media that "the custody evaluator has been made aware of James's preferences at home," but still favors the mother in the proceedings. As of now, "Jeff has the standard shared custody agreement ... which is two hours every Thursday evening and every first third and fifth weekend of the month."

In truth, the mother should be prosecuted for child abuse and the therapists who encourage this should be in jail:

It is truly heartbreaking to see a family split apart, but even worse to see a mother and father at odds over whether their son is a boy or a girl. The mother may also suffer from a mental disorder, which a therapist and a court seem willing to indulge. What has America come to?

A very astute comedian observed the "Me Too" movement is Munchausen by proxy. Everyone just projects their dysfunction.
