May 17, 2007 5:59am CST
This article was kinda disturbing to me. 4 year old boys telling their mothers they preferred to be girls, and wear dresses.But even more disturbing, was parents ALLOWING their little boys to wear dresses, play with dolls, and get their genitals whacked off in their teens. The article almost had me convinced, I started thinking, maybe I am just weird, but after thinking about it for 5 minutes I realized there was no way in heck I would allow my little boy to get his genital whacked off! now, who is seriously delusional in this society? what are your thoughts? go ahead and rip me up if you disagree, I am just trying to understand this craziness.

I can see both side of the arguments here but what you do if a 4 your four old clearly knows he's meant to wear dresses adn play with dolls. SOmeone of that age should not be questions their sexuality so I think it owuld really convince me that he had been born the wrong gender. I doubt that the parents of this child took the decision lightly. Maybe they thought it was best to be proactive about it in order to cause less emotional scarring when they were adult. It would be weird though, I don't think you would know until you were finally in that position.
