Look, the bottom line is biology and physiology. If someone is a boy, yet their body is telling them they are a girl, they just can't "be" a boy. I
say the same thing of homosexuality, and that people don't CHOOSE these things, they are born that way.
If I am wrong, then why is there homosexuality among over 1500 animal species? They act on pure instinct in almost everything they do, so it must be
natural, and they were apparently born that way. An animal doesn't just decide, hey I think I will be gay.
It's no different in this case. This person is being who their body says they are, and THAT is natural, because THAT is biology. It's really common
sense here. It's just that people let their prejudices get in the way, me included, but everyone should evaluate and attempt to understand these
things, instead of getting angry at the person, in this case a child, themselves. Ridiculous.
Now does that mean this person should be allowed into the girl scouts? It is a tough question considering that there is no right answer. Either option
will draw outrage, but the decision, in my opinion, should be what's best for the child. In this case what's best for the child is to be allowed to
participate, and they made the right decision.
It will do zero harm to any of the other girls, and do wonders for the subject's self-esteem. She is already learning at a young age that people don't
take kindly to anyone who is "different."
Oh, by the way, GENDER IDENTITY IS FORMED BY AGE 3!!! Look it up.
