  1. The ignorance in these comments is beyond disgusting. The hate you're spreading and opinions you're trying to shove down ppls throats. I feel bad for your children. Good luck having your child trust and open up to you while spreading your ignorant thoughts and opinions.

  2. Even though I respect your choice(s) and you as a person. It's just wrong to me. God made you a boy for a reason. But happiness is happiness. If you are happy being a girl then you are happy being a girl and I'm happy that you're happy.

  3. children are not able to make such a great ddecition on his or her life at this age. Children may decide to go back and be what they where before. Some parents think that just because their 5 year old son or daughter want to be what they are not, is ok. To become transgeder acted at a much older age. Younger than 15 is too young to be able to decide if it is time to change your sex.

  4. It is honestly so awful that this GUY’S parents let him become a transgender at 7 years old. As if he could know what was go for him at the moment. This is horrible. Talk about horrible parenting. He is not a girl. Hell never be a girl. Just awful.
