Judge orders boy, seven, to live with father after his mother raised him as her daughter and even registered him with his GP as a girl

Social workers let a mother raise her young son as a girl because they were in thrall to ‘transgender equality’.

Seven-year-old boy ‘living life entirely as girl’ removed from mother’s care

  • Youngster has been sent to live with his father following High Court ruling
  • The judge said the woman had caused her son ‘significant emotional harm’
  • He said the mother had been ‘absolutely convinced’ that the youngster ‘perceived himself as a girl’ and was determined that he should be a girl

The boy, who was made to wear a pink hairband, dresses and nail varnish, lived ‘entirely as a girl’.

He was registered as a girl with his doctor’s surgery and was referred to as ‘she’ in official documentation from the age of just four.

But despite the alarm being raised by officials and the boy’s father, council staff failed to intervene.

Details of the extraordinary case were revealed at the Family Court recently when a judge accused the boy’s social workers of naivety and professional arrogance.

The seven-year-old, who cannot be identified, has been removed from his mother’s care and is living with his father in the north of England.

He now regards himself as male and plays with toys such as Power Rangers.  The Judge, Mr Justice Hayden, said: ‘This is not a case about gender dysphoria, rather it is about a mother who has developed a belief structure which she has imposed upon her child”.

‘I am bound to say that had the concerns of school staff been given the weight that they plainly should have, it is difficult to resist the conclusion the boy could have been spared a great deal of emotional harm.’

He added: “Transgender equality has received a great deal of attention in recent times. I believe that in this case the profile and sensitivity of the matters raised by the mother blinded a number of professionals from applying their training, skill, and, it has to be said, common sense”.
