    Autistic boy, 16, allowed to become a woman but judge orders he freeze his sperm in case he wants to be a dad

    A schoolboy has been given permission to start changing into a woman - provided he has his sperm frozen in case he decides to 'father' children some time in the future.

    The extraordinary case has emerged in Australia where a female judge in the Family Court has given the 16-year-old boy the go-ahead to start drug treatment in the first steps to his conversion into womanhood.

    Judge Linda Dessau said the teenager, who is mildly autistic, was mature enough to know what he wanted - and he had the support of his parents, six specialists and a lawyer.

    Sydney's Daily Telegraph reported today that the boy, identified only as 'O', comes from a loving family who 'adore and respect him'.

    He also had the support of his 14-year-old sister, whose clothes he has been secretly dressing up in.

    The judge said the boy was so desperate to become a girl that he had become suicidal and had once taken the extreme step of swallowing a lead solder at his school.

    Added to the unusual case was the judge's observation that the boy's father had also enjoyed dressing up as a girl but he had said that he 'grew out of it'.

    The parents of 'O' thought he would also grow out of his obsession of dressing up as a girl but that did not happen and when he was 14 he told them he was revolted by his male body.
    When grown women are "revolted" by their own bodies, we diagnose them with body dysmorphic disorder and recognize that treatment (often residential treatment) is needed to address a mental illness (not a 'preference') that can have fatal consequences.

    This is shameful.

    Yeah who the hell knows what they want at 16 anyway?

    Also, it's pretty funny that it's "assumed" we have the technology to actually make a man "become" a woman. At best, we have the technology to disfigure a man so with certain chemical treatments he might more resemble a woman. Honestly, absent some sort of gene-therapy treatment this is nothing but mutilation.

    Mutilation for the boy and slap in the face to genetic women. How is this different from a white guy who likes blacks so much that he wants to dye his skin and change his hair texture and facial features to resemble one?

    Any different? No.

    You have to give Policon credit, at least he stopped at heels and a sports bra!
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I was pretty damned sure that I wanted to get laid, if that counts.

    This. Lord, I feel for Transpeople, but transitioning an autistic person as 16 is just STUPID on it's face. Let the kid wear a kilt to school. That way he gets the fun of a skirt, though that's a masculine piece of clothing.

    In the end, you have an artificial hermaphrodite. That does NOT make them less of a person w/o deserving of dignity and a good shot at life, but . . .transitioning an autistic person at 16 or a normal person before the age of 18/21 is bullshit. Sorry.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    Here's a question if have for the "trans" type people - Do you undergo genetic screening before you make the change? If not - why not? I'd like to understand how people who have perfectly healthy bodies without gender related genetic abnormalities - such as being and XXY female - can justify mutilating a perfectly healthy body for the sake of what is clearly a mental disorder. In this case - we have someone with whom it is demonstrable that they have a mental disorder and you want to further complicate their life by mutilating their body?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
