Psychology through life span
When I first heard this story I thought what in the world was this family doing. First of all I did not believe a word she was saying after she made the statement that “at only 15 mos old he was unsnapping his onesies to make it look like a dress” now that sounds very sketchy how in the world would a child do this at that age and how could she have interpreted that’s what his intentions were how could she have possibly know that’s what he was doing? And then she said “at the age of two he kept gravitating to girl things, insisting his penis was a mistake” please tell me what two year old knows their body parts and then be able to use the word “penis” come on now and she goes on to say that he had asked her “when was the good fairy going to come with her magic wand and change, you know, my genitalia?”. Really I think that is so outlandish I don’t believe that a two year old would have said something like that a two year old can barely talk let know use words like genitalia. Who are they trying to fool its so sad that people will do anything for some attention, she seems to obviously have some thing wrong with her if she thinks anyone with a right mind will buy her story. Here is a woman who has a “copy of the diagnostic statistical manual on hand, who in the world would have a book like that lying around except a medical doctor. She claims that she pretty much self diagnosed her son and from what she read in the entry was that her son had identity disorder. So why in the heck was she so shocked, when the doctor confirmed what she already knew? To me this story was just plain sad I’m sorry I did not find any truth in what they said now don’t get me wrong I believe that children can be born this way I just didn’t believe this story.
