And yet Leftists object to discouraging this transgender craziness in our military!
Instead of presenting the story of Ria Cooper as extreme transgender craziness, the media present it as a human-interest story. Supposedly, now that “she” has finally decided (really, this time) what gender “she” belongs to, Cooper can let the surgeons cut her male genitals off and finally find happiness. The story is filled with all sorts of problems in Cooper’s life (including prostitution) that we’re supposed to believe was caused by the horrible pain of a man being regarded as a man.
But the 23-year-old knows the odds are stacked against her.
Not only because she was born a boy, but because she has now switched gender an astonishing three times in her short life.
Ria – who was born Brad – became Britain’s youngest sex-swap patient at 15. Doctors controversially backed her belief she was a girl in a boy’s body.
She was given blockers to stop her going through puberty, followed by injections of female hormones to impede face and chest hair and trigger the formation of breasts.
But with her life spiralling out of control as she struggled with her new identity – and the fears of never being accepted as a woman – Ria decided to transition back and live her life instead as a gay man.
Before having crucial surgery, she ended her treatment and became Brad again soon after her 18th birthday.
It turned her into the unwitting poster boy for those who claimed teenagers were too young to be given gender reassignment.
But five years on Ria is more certain than ever that is not the real her – and is making her second attempt at becoming a woman to have the future she always dreamed of.
