Boy ‘living life entirely as a girl’ removed from mother's care by judge
The judge said:
“I am entirely satisfied, both on the basis of the reports and [the father’s] evidence at this hearing, that he has brought no pressure on (the boy) to pursue masculine interests. [The boy’s] interests and energy are entirely self-motivated.”

IBelieve I wouldn't have seen that as I have the Feminist boards hidden.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Thanks for that. ?much more useful than a lot of the links my friends were sharing.

GerdaLovesLili Sat 22-Oct-16 18:55:42

I have no idea where the ? came from.

Ok, you know I have to ask..... you have the Feminist boards hidden why?

PoldarksBreeches Sat 22-Oct-16 19:39:41

Shame you have hidden feminism since you seem to be quite interested in a feminist discussion around transing children

MN Feminist boards make me want to run a mile.
Don't worry, YOU don't want people like me in your club, anyway.

The judgement is here www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Fam/2016/2430.html and provides much need clarity.

I hid the boards because I was made very unwelcome in a previous incarnation.

PoldarksBreeches No, I don't think I do want a feminist discussion, but I'm aware that's unlikely to happen.

GerdaLovesLili Sat 22-Oct-16 19:55:05

Thanks Fourormore It's all a lot more complicated than my friends would like to believe.

The discussion on the feminist board is actually quite good. I normally avoid those boards too as I find them a bit too intense.

I suppose it is complicated but can be easily summarised that the child clearly identified as a boy once away from his mother.

GerdaLovesLili Sat 22-Oct-16 20:05:10

Yes, so it seems Fourormore.

I thought we were doing quite well Narnia, I'm not entirely sure what the biscuit's for?

So far, so polite yes?
