It is ridiculous that a child of that age can make such a decision.
Robert Crane

Well said Robert. I expressed a similar sentiment earlier — my cousin (a male) was very feminine from a very young age. He used to dress up in his mom’s dresses and play with barbies and other typically-feminine things when he was young. He came out to our family a couple years ago and is happily in a homosexual relationship with a great man.

We’ve never had a more close relationship than we do right now. I love him to death & I’m so happy for him & his boyfriend — they make a handsome couple. I’d be upset if he was forced into being transgender (and god forbid, had gender reassignment surgery) at such a young age, only to realize he was homosexual.

Like you said, I truly do hope that deep down Sadie wants this — but at such a young age our children are tremendously impressionable by parents. They want to make their parents proud. This girl is out protesting about something she doesn’t even have the self-awareness to understand. 5 year olds, or even 8 year olds for that matter can’t exactly comprehend what gender actually means — they can only reflect what their parents have taught them about it at the time. God forbid this child wakes up 10 years from now regretting what was done.

Like what you read? Give hank jacobs a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
