Their 4 year old boy coincidentally is also transgender.
I think it is kind of a matter of things going from one extreame to another before we grow as a society, and stabilize. People have been put into rolls, and expected to be what they are not for so long, and to an extreame, that now to break out, things have to go extreame in the other direction.
There will undoubtably end up being cases as you are suggesting this may be. It is sad, but it is part of growth. There will always be those that struggle when we make progress. It is progress that needs to be made though.
Hopefully this will end as a happy story, where two people are able to live life as themselves, and not bare the burden of living in a disguise that fits a broken society. They already have the support of their family, and that is huge for anyone.
It will be nice when this is no longer a news story, and we get past this whole boy vs girl vs transgender, straight vs gay vs bi, long hair vs short hair, dresses vs pants, pink vs blue, trucks vs cars, dolls vs games, and all the other ridiculous things people come up with to say who or what you are, or are supposed to be.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
