Born in the Wrong Body? PDF Print E-mail
Parenting

 



My husband and I are dealing with a delicate situation and I'm looking for other parents who could relate. We have four wonderful children, three boys and one girl. They are each unique in their own way. Our youngest son Noah has been exhibiting signs for years that he was different. At first we thought he might be gay but it's more complicated than that.

 

At just three years old Noah would gravitate more to his sister's toys than that of his brothers. He enjoyed playing with girl toys such as dolls which made my husband uncomfortable. He was encouraged to play with his brothers but he always wound up in his sister's room. When he was four, he got into my makeup bag and put on lipstick and eye shadow when no one was looking. He came out of the bathroom smiling from ear to ear only to be told to wash it off by my husband. Noah realized he was doing something "wrong" so he tried to hide his behavior from his dad. 

Born-wrong-bodyBy age five we knew this was not just a phase he was going through. Noah wanted to start wearing girl clothes just like his sister and that's also when he began telling us he was a girl. We explained that boys have a p*nis like he does which makes him a boy and not a girl. That only led him to wanting to cut it off, that's how badly he hated his body. He said he wants to be a girl because he feels like a girl inside.

I caught him in his bedroom one day wearing his sister's dress. He proceeded to tell me once again that he was a girl and he hated having a p*nis. I became very concerned about his well being and made the decision to take him shopping for an outfit. I explained to him that he would only be able to wear it at home because other people don't understand what he feels and they would be nasty to him. I kept it a secret from my husband because I knew he would not approve of my decision. He had a hard time trying to accept his son might be gay, let alone that his son wanted to live his life as a girl.

I finally decided to tell my husband that I support our son and his feelings about being born in the wrong body. We as parents need to support Noah so he doesn't feel depressed that he was born a boy. I also told him about allowing our son to wear girl clothes in the house. He was upset but after many talks together we are prepared to stand by our child and accept him for what he is and what he is not.

My brother is 10 an is also like this. He is transgender an we have known this since he was very very young. He is now wearing what he wants to school an feels comfortable in his own skin. I can't say letting him,be who he is will be easy but it's what he needs. You have to support ur child an be beside him no matter what anyone thinks. That is what being a parent is all about. I am very proud to see another parent supporting there child. I support my brother an even go shopping with him an let me tell you he is a diva and I love every second of it. *Proud sister of a transgender*

Your son is obviously displaying signs of being transgender. People who are born transgender truly have the opposite brain for the body they were born in. Your son should have your full support, whatever he chooses. Being GAY is completely different from being transgender, because a transgender person really is a boy in a girls body or vise versa.

These religious people with their sh*tty book that is full of bullsh*t are sickening. If that offends them, I don't care. The way they talk about your son and tell you to tell him he is wrong is just ignorant. This is an innocent CHILD who can not be untruthful about what he is, because he has no reason to lie about what he feels inside. If your child still feels like he is supposed to be a girl when he is a teenager, I would seriously think about letting him transition into a SHE. Please look into transgender children and have your child see a psychiatrist so that he can better understand his condition and cope with it.

Transgender children who are forced to act like what the body they were born in looks like often become depressed and sometimes even suicidal. They mutilate their own bodies and have awful lives if they aren't allowed to be who they really are. Don't let ignorant people tell you to do anything other than be supportive. I think it's fantastic that you and your husband are supporting your little GIRL!

Those Religious people have no idea what the fudge they're talking about. They obviously don't read their "s***** books".
I don't know about them, but my Bible tells me that everyone is accepted; If you think something's wrong, pray about it. If you give your all, and it doesn't work accept it go ahead. Love your kid for who s/he is. it's not a sin.

I agree! This are signs of being transgender, accept your child for who she is. And everyone with their offensive religious crap need to shove it up their hole and pipe down! Don't you think it's hard on her enough without yourselves being mean? With time things will get easier and you will adjust to her personality and the person she knows she is and as will your husband, just give it time and love your kids with all your heart.

I know that hypnotherapy works. My aunt smoked for years and found an ad in a magazine, called the number and they hypnotized her right over the phone. She never smoked again. No withdrawals either. I would try that. It is at least worth a try. I hope everything works out.

David here, hypnotherapy is demonic, evil, basically what your aunt did is open herself up for demons to come right in to her and possess her-demons can heal too-they are supernatural beings-once angels-but became demons when they rebelled against God along with Lucifer and were kicked out of heaven to earth. True born again believers cannot be possessed by demons, only oppressed, because they are sealed by the Holy Ghost and Jesus lives within them. Your aunt should repent of going to an occultic practice and she should as well as you, receive Jesus into your hearts as your own personal Saviour and Lord. Jesus can heal from smoking with love no strings attached but when a demon or satan heals-like jannes and jambres magicians of pharoahs court-got their powers from satan and demons-Moses power was from God, who created satan and demons before they sinned and were known as Lucifer, an archangel and demons as angels. When satan or demons heal you, they demand things in return-smoking-a small price to pay to get to possess your aunt's body. Acupunctured, tattoos-which is bloodletting, and a myriad of things open people up to demon possession, I believe this also include the evil psychiatry's poisonous pills they hand out like candy.
Love in Jesus,

Some people don't accept the Bible because it teaches something other than what they want to believe.

Have you tried praying about this situation? It may seem normal, but you never know what happens in the spiritual realm. God doesn't reject anyone; gay or not. He made us all, and He loves us all equally. Just give the matter to God. And don't try to think about how He's gonna do it. Just let Him do it. Human reasoning can't comprehend God's work.It will turn up as impossible. So just Pray (constantly) and relax and give it all to God. :-)

I am glad there is others out there that allow their children to be who they are and not force a frame of mind on them... I was born this way as well but I was born in the 70's and I was told I was evil and a taint on the earth…I can live with myself today... but I still have fear...

I wish my parents had cared even 1/3rd as much as you care about noah... I was told I was a blight on the church and a sin in the heart... I was raised to believe that I was gay and evil.. I hated my parents for it... I felt broken and destroyed... I became dark and twisted... but today after 33 years I chose to stand up for myself... I am girl... I have the wrong body… and I can live with that… It's good to see you not trying to force your son to be something he isn't or doesn't want to be…

I'd just like to say that I dispise all the comments rejecting how your son feels. I think whatever he feels is right should be done.

Ya gotta love people that stand on their pedestal and scream about God and Jesus and the holy spirit. I was not exposed to homosexuality until after high school. That being said, how did I learn the behaviors that made me attracted to both sexes? I knew I was different from a very young age and grew up thinking I was sick. Science has proven that people can be born transgendered. And if your God created everything, with no mistakes, what about homosexuality documented among animal species other than primates? How did they "learn" to be gay from their environment?

To the writer... you are doing just what you should. Love your daughter, support her. She need you as she faces this world full of ignorant, little people who will attack what their small little minds can't understand. And... to all of you that believe in your fairy tales, if you're not gay, then you don't have to worry that you're going to Hell for it. You just have to worry about going to Hell for judging all of us that are gay, bisexual or transgendered.

I think that your son will end up having more problems if he is allowed to get away with this behavior. I believe that you should nip it in the bud and just tell him that this is how our world works. You will save him from years of humiliation and scars that go deeper then many of us know. People are unforgiving and although I understand you want to support him no matter what, you will be protecting him this way. Good Luck to you on your journey and I hope this all works out for you.

Your son is gay ...it happens not too me but I have a bestfriend that is gay & the best advice I can give you guys as parents is let him be him. He's going to be the one you guys have to be there for the most because other kids will pick on him but he will grow to get used to it.

My best friend said the major thing that he hated in life wasn't the ppl that picked on him, it was his parents forcing him to be something he wasn't deep down inside to save themselves from embarrassment.
Growing up his dad steered away from him because of him wanting to be a her & he said it hurts that out of all his sibblings it felt like he wasn't treated as equal. He had to do things he didn't like & wasn't supported for the things he did do & it was because it was "girly" things.

Just be his backbone, support him and love him as he was a normal kid that's all they want.
