    EDIT: 10 years old*
    I ****ed up the title -____-

    Came across this on the BBC website, surprise surprise...

    Poor child, kinda feel sorry for him/her.
    Which delusion are we going to have to accept next?

    (Why can't kids just be kids anymore ffs!)

    Thoughts?
    Well.. my thoughts on this are: we have a very complicated society and I guess people are free to believe whatever they want to. This may not make sense to many of us, but it will to some others and that's okay.

    Why do they have to identify as something or give it thought at all. I had short hair, wore track suits, climbed trees and only did things that lads do till I was 14. I'm still not 'girly' I don't wear skirts do nails and all that and kind of think being a lad would have suited me so much better. I still think of myself of female though just a sporty non girly one. Besides certain biological differences gender could just largely be a social construct anyway everyone has elements of masculine and feminine inside them.

    What about the Intersex people? They have both male and female genitals. So, there are 3 biological sexes.

    You said yourself. They have both 'male' and 'female' genitals, that is they have have aspects of both of the sexes but aren't an entirely new sex themselves. If they were an entirely new sex then surely they would have an entirely new kind of genitals and would have a separate role in our overall reproductive method.

    At least that's how I understand it.

    The kid's been spending too much time on Tumblr.

    Who wants to wager he'll be over this next year when he identifies as Batman?

    playing around with things associated with the other gender doesn't mean they identify as that gender.
    Playing mummies and daddies did not make me think I was girl

    Non-issue. Leave the kid alone, they can decide how and in what way they'll live their life. Why does it matter?

    Was brave enough to open up to the media and you call it a 'delusion', don't be so rude and dismissive. As long as they're happy, who cares? :yawn:
    we don't let kids vote, drink, drive or serve at 10 for a good reason. Why shouldwe allow them to indulge what is likely to be a passing whim at that age?

    Why is it up to us to restrict the freedoms of children even more than they already are? And if, as you say, it is a "passing whim" then leave them to figure that out for themselves, don't force what is your opinion on others, especially not that of your child. Restricting freedom of expression in children will only stunt their emotional development. Leave them alone. Let them get on with it.

    And letting your kid run rough shod over the neighbourhood and indulging their every whim is almost universally viewed as horrific parenting.

    Do you honestly think the 10-year-old child had 100% of the say in this?

    My sister, who I'm extremely close with, is 11 years old, and I've never heard her speak about not "feeling" like a girl or anything along those lines. Gender isn't something you hear from a young child's mouth, unless the parents have been indoctrinating them.

    Given lack of information, I don't know. I am not interested in speculating.

    Don't know what happened here, seem to have been quoted twice. But opinion remains the same as above.

    "[...]don't force what is your opinion on others, especially not that of your child. "

    You say the above, yet you're not concerned about whether this kid's parents have had any say in the decision?

    So, you just want to let parents chat absolute horse **** about gender, sex and sexuality to their kids? Or you want to protect them?

    That's my point; doubtless your parents were sensible enough to realise that too.

    That expression generally means you don't have a brain. Glad we've cleared that up :lol:
