This may be blocked outside of Australia, but this story tells the story of Emma, who was born a boy but knew all her life she felt like a girl. http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8674056 I appreciate the honesty that the parents have in this. They are still mourning the loss of their son, at the same time as having to help their daughter through life. It's so good though to see that the (separated) parents are both able to put their child's needs first. If that was my child, I would be petrified for them because we as adults know just how horrible other people can be to each other. As I was watching this story I just knew that some people watching the same thing would be thinking it's disgusting, it's unnatural, it's just a phase etc. At least this child hasn't had to deal with hatred from within her own family. Previously I was on the fence about kids being transgender, but I know someone who has undergone gender reassignment surgery, and they've never been happier. For the first time in their life they aren't just going through the motions but are simply living their life, free and happy. I'm sure not all cases would be this clear, there would statistically be some that are a phase or confusion or something else, but watching this story I didn't get any vibe from the child that they were anything but a girl. I wish this family all the best.
