It may be an American first, and not in a good way…an entire family from Queen Creek, Arizona has come out as transgender.
The family detailed its “transition” to the other sex in an interview with KJZZ.
CNS News reports…
The father identifies as a woman. His fiancée, the mother-to-be, identifies as a man. The son considers himself a girl and, of course, the daughter thinks she’s actually a boy. An entire transgender family, all under one roof.
Daniel Harrott was born a woman, while his fiancée, Shirley Austin was born a man.
Both have previously been married.
Eleven year-old Mason and 13 year-old Joshua have also switched sexes.
“The whole family is in transition,” Austin said in an interview with KJZZ, which reports the two adults are teaching each other to adopt “traditional” gender roles.”
On the subject of transitioning, Shirley said…
“It was so freeing, because I knew I could be me, and they’re going to understand me for who I am.”
“They’re going to know the hurts that I feel and how we can help each other.”
“I feel loved.”
“I mean, I feel love for who I am, exactly how I am,” added Daniel.
The Gateway Pundit reports that a National Center for Transgender Equality survey, 40% of transgender people have tried to kill themselves. The staggering statistic is approximately ten times higher in contrast 4.6% of the general population that has attempted to commit suicide.
