A lesbian couple in California has decided it would be appropriate to let their child decide that he wanted gender reassignment surgery.
As if that alone was not obnoxious enough, they let him decide who he was sexually at the ripe old age of 3. I can’t even fathom the IQ levels of these parents right now:
Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel, a lesbian couple from California, claimed their 11-year-old son Thomas didn’t want to be a boy. Thomas, who prefers to go by “Tammy,” wanted to be a girl. So his mothers gave him hormone treatments to delay puberty so that he could fully “transition” into a female through surgery when he is old enough.
Yes, you read that correctly.
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.
The mothers say that one of the first things Thomas told them when he learned sign language aged three – because of a speech impediment – was, ‘I am a girl’.
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.
At age 3, I am not so sure that I knew much about anything, let alone my sexual preferences. I always knew I was a girl, but I had no idea at that age about sex or much of anything besides my favorite dolls.
I don’t know the entire story of WHY a 3 year old might say something like this, but maybe, like most kids, he wanted to be like his parents, and he has 2 mommies. I don’t think though, that any responsible parent should want to indulge their child in such a life altering decision. I would not want to harm my children in this fashion, and I have no idea why these women chose to do this “for” their son.
Personally, I could give 2 hoots who you marry, adopt, love, smoke, or shoot – those are your personal rights, and at the end of the day, you have to look in the mirror and like it. This is about a CHILD, who was led into a situation he could not fully comprehend, and changed his physical makeup forever. That, folks, is child abuse. This is not a gay rights issue, this is not an issue of gay adoption or marriage, it is about the child, plain and simple. This never should have happened. I hope that Thomas gets the help that he will so desperately need as he gets older.
