Interesting story - glad that more parents are finding resources when faced with gender choices amongst their very young children.

However, for the father to fully identify himself in the article is atrocious. Children need to be protected - and the move to advertise the extraordinarily delicate situation their child is going through and memorializing it on the internet for eternity is selfish and self-serving.

We should be having the conversation - yes. But a child should be given the respect and privacy to move through this choice on their own time and own terms without media scrutiny and all that it brings.

The Jersey Journal

10-year-old PJ from Jersey City is among the boys at a summer camp for boys who like to dress in dresses and high heels, ABC News reports.
Boys at the camp, some as young as 3, spend four days with their families at the camp, dressing up in traditionally female clothing without being bullied, according to the report.

PJ, whose real name has been withheld, has been running around in pink shoes since he was just a toddler, his father told ABC.

"We didn't know how far the gender-bending would go," his father told the network. "It crept into our lives."
