The parents mostly mentioned what the child preferred to play with or wear. At the age of 2/3. I don't believe these children knew what 'trans' was when they were that young. Your opinions?

Some version of Munchausen's for a 2/3 year old.

A child with a tenuous relationship with reality (tooth fairy etc.) can be persuaded of anything.

I saw this one of the parents mentioned a child not wanting to be referred to as boy/girl as a baby. How would they even know? What was the reaction? I just don't get it. These interviews never delve deep enough.

Has anyone been watching The Secret Life of X Year Olds? They did 4 year olds last week. One boy wanted to be a mermaid and another a butterfly. Quite boisterous boys, actually.
Who really considers what 4 year olds want to be as genuine? I wanted to be Stan Laurel at that age.

Clona, no I haven't but may take a look at it. Thanks for that. It's getting out of hand, and i really feel for 'true trans' people

Haven't watched it but "transing" children is child abuse.

Who was that expert ? Someone from Tavistick ?

When she agreed that yes some children do you want to change back, what the hell does that mean?

If the ideology is born in the wrong body, how does that change?!!

There's some interesting insights into mermaids on the aibu post. But y'know, we're all genital obsessed transphobes so what do we know wink
