Skip to comments.Our 9-year-old child Ryder is transgender — but parenting isn't about labels

We knew from the very beginning that our child didn't fit the mould. Ryder preferred dresses and pink sparkly clothing from the moment he could crawl to the cupboard and pull out his own clothes. They belonged to his sister but he wanted to wear them and so he did. His sister wasn't impressed at first but as long as they weren't her favourite outfits, she soon adjusted.
At three, he wanted to grow his hair out. He went to preschool with dresses and pigtails. When the other kids were confused, Ryder just shrugged. He didn't feel the need to explain himself and we followed his lead.
When Ryder was four, he sat on the couch crying heavy, sobbing tears. "I want to be a girl! I want to be a girl!" he cried as he rocked back and forth covering his face with his hands. I rushed over, took him in my lap and cradled him, saying, "You can be a girl. Of course you can. Be a girl!"
There was a brief time when Ryder's dad had doubts and made him buy clothes from the boy's section. We had a major fight and I was ready to leave with the kids if he didn't come around. Those clothes sat untouched for weeks until Ryder brought the pile to Dad and said, "I don't want these."
Dad nodded knowingly. That whisper of doubt was washed away and, every day since, Dad has been nothing but loving and supportive.

Losers. The kids will need therapy eventually
If they don’t kill themselves first.
The parents need help!
No, he’s not. Labels are all you care about here.
I always kind of wonder in these cases how much is the parents doing, and the kid just goes along because they think that is what the parents want. The kid overhears the parents saying they wish they had a daughter so they put on a dress one day, they get lavished with praise and attention from mom and dad. So they go all in to get lavished with love and attention.
At three... we followed his lead.
Couldn’t this whack job tell whether he was a boy or girl when she changed his diapers?
I agree. Child abuse.
The mother has a ‘husband’. I am guessing a woman with a strap-on.
Something like 85% end up killing themselves because they can never adapt.
What’s the over/under on suicide by the age of 30?
She was ready to leave with the kids unless $$@& whipped Dad came around. Since he was beaten down and conquered, Dad has been loving and supportive of the mom who was ready to end the marriage over this issue.
Only three sexes, male, female and freak.
So, you raised a faggot. Bully for you. But nothing a few playground ass-kickings won't straighten out.
