I'll try to keep this short for once.

You have your first child and they are the love of your life (You choose which sex, whichever you would want first). At age five you realize that your child prefers playing with toys that are generally played with by the opposite sex more than the toys that are generally played with by their sex (ie: trucks for boys and dolls for girls). Do you do anything? At age eight, your child tells you that they are the opposite sex, nonchalantly, of course, because they're still a kid. Do you do anything? At age 10 your child begins to dress and act like the opposite sex. What do you do? At age 12 your child tells you that they want to take hormones and have a sex-change procedure done. What do you do? Would you be embarrassed of your child's behavior in front of long-time friends or in public?

Discuss.

12 is a bit young... If it was a girl, I'd make her be a lesbian. And if he/she's acting so opposite sexly already, why would hormones be needed? Yeah, let's take on a period!

Reminds me of one of our teachers, as a baby her dad wanted a son so when he had a daughter he wasn't impressed...he started buying her loads of boy clothes and toys and it went for ages until her mother finally snapped and said you do realize it's a girl right and had a huge row.

I'd be embarrassed alright.

And no I wouldn't let them get a sex change and if they got one when they're older I wouldn't approve, but love them all the same. But I'd be fine with them being gay, boy or girl. I'd get a tad upset first, but it wouldn't last.

And knowing me I'll know homosexuality is completely normal and natural but I'd blame myself somewhere along the line wondering what I did wrong and doubting myself as a father and whatnot. Like a little baby... >_>

If it's what they really want and it makes them happy, then I'd accept it. I wouldn't be embarrassed, I wouldn't be disappointed, I wouldn't be disturbed, and I wouldn't be angry.

My only main concern is who is going to be paying for that damn sex change!

Well if I ever did have a kid

L0l, A Prinny Junior?.

And, What would I do?. First I'd say "Oh Cock." Then take him/her to a Psychiatrist.

Then wonder endlessly what I did wrong to make him/her like that.

This.

I wouldn't care, it's wrong to force someone to change who they are.

But am I about to pay for a sex change operation? **** no.
