12-year-old Boy Who Transitioned to Female changes mind two years later at 14: [WATCH] ’60 Minutes’ Segment
As a 12-year-old boy, Patrick Mitchell, begged his mother to begin taking estrogen hormones after doctors diagnosed him with gender dysphoria.
Patrick thought he wanted to be a girl.“You wish you could just change everything about you, you just see any girl and you say I’d kill to be like that”, Mitchell told 60 Minutes.
After listening to bad advice from so-called professionals who suggested that it was right choice, Patrick’s mother was fully supportive and the boy began to transition. He grew out his hair and started to take the hormones, which caused his body to grow breasts. But two years afterward, Patrick Mitchell had a change of heart.
In the beginning of 2017, at 14, his teachers at school began to refer to him as a girl which triggered Mitchell to question if he had made the right decision.
“I began to realize that I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he told Now To Love. Mitchell then confided in his mother and explained that he wanted to be a boy again.
“He looked me in the eye and said ‘I’m just not sure that I am a girl’”, his mother explained.
The American College of Pediatrics recently published the Decision that Transgenderism of Children is Child Abuse (click and read!),
Here is the interview on 60 minutes:
The 14-year-old girl decided she really was Patrick the boy after all. Now, as he and his mother explain to Ross Coulthart, the great unknown Patrick faces is determining whether the treatment to become female has already progressed too far.
Parents have been accepting their children as transgender at ages as young as three. In 2015, the number of children seeking medical attention for transgenderism went up by 400 percent.
In an August 2016 report, scientific research also concluded “that most of the supposedly transgender children and teenagers who ask to change sexes instead just change their minds and grow up as normal adults,” while in October a court ordered a seven-year-old boy to be removed from his mother’s care after she forced him to be raised as a girl, which social services allegedly abided by, causing “significant emotional harm” in the child.
Last month, it was reported that a Californian first grader had been sent to the principal’s office for misgendering a fellow student, who had recently come out as transgender.
At the same school, Rocklin Academy, parents also complained after a teacher read a book about transgenderism to students without notifying them.
“My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy,” claimed one parent.
The book was allegedly given to the teacher by the same transgender child at the school, who “also changed clothes and was revealed as her true gender” during class.
I am sure that this is probably a very common occurrence for young children!
A policy statement, authored by Johns Hopkins Medical School Psychology Professor Paul McHugh, listed eight arguments on why gender reclassification is harmful.
1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.
2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.
3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such.
4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous. Reversible or not, puberty-blocking hormones induce a state of disease – the absence of puberty – and inhibit growth and fertility in a previously biologically healthy child.
5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.
6. Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.
7. Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT – affirming countries.
8. Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful as child abuse.
