Zachy AveryAt 4 years old, kids are just starting to exert their independence and make choices for themselves—what they want to wear, what they like (and don’t like) to eat, what songs they love to listen to and shows to watch on TV. When Zach Avery turned 4, he decided he no longer wanted to be a boy. At all. His parents, naturally, were a little thrown off; his mom said he had been a “normal” little boy until suddenly, at the end of 2010, he decided he wanted to live as a girl.

Eventually, their son—who now prefers long, blonde pigtails to his former short haircut and traded in Thomas the Tank Engine for Dora the Explorer—was diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID), one of the youngest kids to ever have their decision backed by the National Health Service in London. For more than a year now, he’s been living his life as “Zachy.”

When he was 3, he started gravitating to pink dresses and tutus. His mother, Theresa, says: “He just turned round to me one day when he was 3 and said, ‘Mummy, I'm a girl.’ I a$sumed he was just going through a phase and just left it at that. But then it got serious and he would become upset if anyone referred to him as a boy. He used to cry and try to cut off his willy out of frustration.” Now that’s just heartbreaking.

Although he has a male body, specialists say the disorder in Zach’s brain is telling him he’s a girl. The conflict can be devastating, as we’ve seen in more and more stories about kids who break under the burden of bullying, family criticism, or their own feelings. Fortunately, he has the support of both his parents and his community—his elementary school has even made their restrooms gender-neutral to take the pressure off of him. Teachers address him as a girl, which is what he wants, and have been helpful in explaining to his fellow students that Zach's body is male but in his brain, he is female.

“We said, ‘Zach was just happier being a girl than a boy,’” his mom told them.

And because they’re young and innocent and sweet and untainted by the opinions of the world, his classmates haven’t batted an eye at the news. Zach even wears the girls’ uniform to school, which is trimmed in pink.

His parents alternate between calling him “Zach” and “Zachy,” “him” and “her,” (hence why I’ve gone back and forth in writing this), and his mom admits that she misses her little boy and would love to have him back, but that ultimately, she just wants him to be happy. Still, Zach’s parents have outfitted his wardrobe with girls’ clothes—and a few gender-neutral numbers in case he ever wants to wear them. "We leave it up to him to decide what he wants to do—if he changes his mind and wants to be a boy again then he does, but if he doesn't, he doesn't,” she said. She’s also working to build awareness about the disorder.

I’ve purposely backed away from wielding my normally fiery opinion because I haven’t completely worked out my thoughts on gender identity, particularly in children. Once upon a time, it was a black and white issue in my book. Don’t appease that nonsense, case closed. Now, not so much. But I do feel like every kid deserves to be supported and listened to, though I can only imagine how difficult the news must be for some parents. I always try to put myself in the position of other folks and I’m not even gonna lie: this would be a hard pill for me to swallow. So I give all the kudos to the people around Zach for expressing love, patience, and encouragement through his decision-making and transition.

Incidentally, more than 160 kids were diagnosed with GID in England alone last year, but numbers may be much higher as kids and parents both struggle with identifying and accepting the signs. Only seven kids under the age of 5 were diagnosed last year, and Zach was one of the youngest.

Be honest: if your child came to you and said they wanted to be the opposite secks, how would you react? > 4-year old wants a sex change... - Photo posted in Wild videos, news, and other media | Sign in and leave a comment below!> 4-year old wants a sex change... - Photo posted in Wild videos, news, and other media | Sign in and leave a comment below!> 4-year old wants a sex change... - Photo posted in Wild videos, news, and other media | Sign in and leave a comment below!

Regardless of whether or not people like it (for political correctness reasons) this kid's GID is a result of Chromosomal, genetic damage. Just like all cases. Gotta love all those DNA-damaging chemicals we're all exposed to in this modern society.

!!ing agree...not trying to start a race war but the picture of the boy dressed as girl is just foolish on the parents part....black or white, the parents are pathetic for letting this boy/girl coming to this point

Why is it never the other way around? It's never a woman who wants to straight up be a man.

I dont agree with secks changes, but I do agree about the chemicals altering humans. The number 1 culprit is birth control. Many effects, mainly birth defects and inability to follow instincts. (google it). Not to mention vaccines, antibiotics that cause cancer and other b.s.

So, who cares tell the little dude he a boy live with it.

Let him wait until he's 18 and do it then. I'm sure there won't be any real men left by then and babies will be made in a test tube from breeding specimens and lesbians.

Of course there is.. I just saw a woman going through the transition on a TV show literally like an hour ago. Had her !! removed, boosted with testosterone so HE can grow facial hair and whatnot. Still has a va-jay-jay for the time being though.

Saw this !! on dateline not too long ago. Mom had her son on 18 medications as a toddler for being hyper and fussy all the time. Now at 6 years old, the "boy" dresses and wants to be a girl. "He" even tried to cut his own wee wee off with nail clippers.

I blame the stupid parents who dont know how to discipline and set their kids straight and just let the doctors give their kids all these meds.
