This is an old story, from 2011, but it marked the beginning of what is now becoming a more common practice among “transgender” children.
When the story about Thomas (AKA Tammy) broke, the Daily Mail published an article called The Little Boy Who Started A Sex Change At Eight Years of Age Because His Lesbian Parents Always Knew He Wanted To Be A Girl:
The lesbian parents of an 11-year-old boy who is undergoing the process of becoming a girl last night defended the decision, claiming it was better for a child to have a sex change when young.
Thomas Lobel, who now calls himself Tammy, is undergoing controversial hormone blocking treatment in Berkeley, California to stop him going through puberty as a boy. Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel [the lesbian parents] warn that children with gender identity disorder forced to postpone transitioning could face a higher risk of suicide.
At age seven, after threatening genital mutilation on himself, psychiatrists diagnosed Thomas with gender identity disorder. By the age of eight, he began transitioning. This summer, he started taking hormone-blocking drugs, which will stop him from experiencing puberty.
The child expressed the “desire” to be a girl at age THREE? Give me a break
When I was three, I said I wanted to be a unicorn. Needless to say, my parents didn’t rush me to a plastic surgeon to have a horn implanted on my head.
It is also important to note that Thomas was being raised by two women, so of course he would say he wanted to be a girl. Naturally, the boy wanted to fit in with his family members and he had no male role model to look up to in his household.
A 3-year-old child (or an 11-year-old child, for that matter), is not capable of making mature, permanent decisions. Nor do they fully comprehend sexuality or identity. It was completely irresponsible for the two
Now, I just want to clarify that this story has nothing to do with gay rights. Rather, this is about childhood and forced identity. What Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel did to little Thomas was, indeed, child abuse. They altered the boy’s body forever.
I bring this up now because such stories are becoming more and more common. There is even a “youth confusion” camp now for boys who want to be girls. At the summer camp, the boys do fashion shows, learn how to paint their nails, and pick out dresses.

Pediatricians Call Gender Ideology What It Is – Child Abuse
This is something we all have to decide for ourselves, what is considered child abuse? Is this it, or do ADULTS of an alternative lifestyle have the right to do this, is this a form of imposition of ones lifestyle on a child which is not the norm? Is this child abuse?
The main question is, taking into consideration this "boy's" surroundings, what was the major factor in him making childish "suggestions" and shouldn't responsible adults give this kid, time to think, and make up his own mind when he is responsible enough to do it on his own?
Freedoms means one has the right to be who they want to be, this site has always promoted the ideal behind that, the right to express, the right to criticize, the right to oppose, it all goes hand in hand in a true democracy, but in no way, does anyone have to right to "impose" ones will on another or shove it in our faces as if we are forced to accept...never going to happen. Actually, trying to force people to think a certain way, is whats causing the backlash.
And when it comes to kids, like the story above, they should thread lightly, this is definitely what makes people notice something is wrong with this picture. Because it looks like someone is using children to advance their way of life, and that's never a good thing.
