A couple of weeks ago, I read the following words in an article on the home page of The New York Times:

“…studies suggest that most young children with gender dysphoria eventually lose any desire to change sex, and may grow up to be gay, rather than transgender.”

detransificationI read through the article once, then once again, eager to learn more. Just what were these studies?  And what else might they suggest? Perhaps they’d have some helpful suggestions for me, as I attempt to parent a child whose identity defies everything I have ever been taught about gender, thrusting us both into a situation that is mentioned exactly never in the parenting books. By golly, I said to myself, I need to get my mitts on those studies!
