Mom Decides 2 Year Old is Transgender

HAWAII – The mother of a  second-grader in Hawaii claims her child has made the transition from a boy to a girl and is demanding an official Department of Education policy on transgenders. Otherwise, she says her child is at risk of being discriminated against. She claims that her child Kai, now 7,  has identified as a girl since the age of 2.

First of all, how can a 2 year old make any sort of judgement about his or her gender identity? The mother here is clearly trying to impose her ideas about her child’s gender identity onto him. If he decides later that that’s how he identifies, fine. But to have your make make that decision at the age of two is insane.

This is bad for the transgender community. This mom’s decision will make it more difficult for her child whatever his decision is about his gender later on. And it undermines the ability of transgenders who have a clear understanding of their sexual identity by making it seem this is a choice imposed from outside.
