An ugly fight over a little boy's big change

gender confusion 3A family dispute in Texas is pitting a divorced mother and father on opposite sides because she considers their son a transgender child.

Walt Heyer, a former transgender, is now working to help others who regret gender change. While unfortunate, he says, this case involving a divorced couple is not uncommon.

"We have numerous situations that I'm personally aware of where the mother is leading the child to change genders and become girls," he says. "And they've gone to LGBT gender clinics and got them diagnosed with gender dysphoria so that the young child can begin the process of what they call transitioning."

The glaring problem in this Texas case, he tells OneNewsNow, is the child has not been diagnosed with gender dysphoria. To put it another way, Heyer says this 6-year-old boy named James does not exhibit any of the criteria for gender dysphoria.

"And it's my estimation," he says, "that probably 80 percent of the other young children being diagnosed with gender dysphoria probably lack some of the components that would be adequate for them to actually get the diagnosis of gender dysphoria."

The situation with the young boy, Heyer says, is that he dresses as a girl when with his mother and dresses as a boy with his father.

"And has no desire to be a girl," Heyer says of the child. "Doesn't want to be a girl."
