Boy Who Began Sex Change at Age 12 Changes His Mind 2 Years Later

After taking body-altering estrogen hormones for over two years, a 14-year-old Australian boy realizes that he made a terrible mistake. 

At age 12, Patrick Mitchell was diagnosed gender dysphoria by doctors – a condition where a person experiences distress because there is a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity. He was prescribed estrogen hormones to begin the sex change process. After heeding advice from professionals who suggested that it was the right choice, his mother was fully supportive and Mitchell began to transition.

The process began when Mitchell felt confused about his body and gender while being bullied at school.

Seeing him struggling, mum Alison decided to home school Patrick and broached the subject of transgender with him.

“I’d seen a story on TV about transgender people,” says Alison.

“I said to Patrick, ‘I’m not saying this is you but I think we should speak to somebody about it.'”

“I hadn’t even finished the sentence and he had the biggest smile on his face – I hadn’t seen him smile for months.”

Shortly after, Patrick met with doctors who diagnosed him with gender dysphoria
– Now to Love, Patrick Mitchell tells: “I transitioned into a girl… now I’m a boy again”

After two years of hormones (and growing breasts), Mitchell had a change of heart.

In the beginning of 2017 however, Patrick started to have a change of heart when a female tutor referred to him as “one of the girls” during a lesson.

“I began to realise I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” Patrick says.

In order to return to his original self, Mitchell stopped his medication and will undergo surgery to remove excess breast tissue.

A Disturbing Trend

As seen in the article Over 800 Children Have Been Given Puberty Blockers by UK’s Public Health System, the NHS has allowed children as young as 10 to undergo an aggressive treatment consisting of monthly injections of hormones that stop the development of sex organs, breasts, and body hair, making it easier to perform sex change operations at a later date.

Paul Rodney McHugh, a distinguished University Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School, has been advocating against hormonal treatments on children for years. Here’s a letter he published summing up the situation.

Advocates of puberty-blockers argue that it represents a prudent and ‘fully reversible’ way to give young people with gender dysphoria and their families time to sort out the difficult issues surrounding gender identity.

Puberty-suppression as an intervention for gender dysphoria has been accepted so rapidly by much of the medical community, apparently without scientific scrutiny, that there is reason to be concerned about the welfare of children who are receiving it.

There remains little evidence that puberty-suppression is reversible, safe, or effective for treating gender dysphoria.

Psychologists do not understand what causes gender dysphoria in children and adolescents.

They also cannot distinguish reliably between children who will only temporarily express feelings of being the opposite sex from children whose gender dysphoria will be more persistent.

We frequently hear from neuroscientists that the adolescent brain is too immature to make reliably rational decisions.

But we are supposed to expect emotionally troubled adolescents to make decisions about their gender identities and about serious medical treatments at the age of 12 or younger.

For patients and doctors who are committed to the view that the young person’s gender dysphoria represents a persistent and real problem that can best be solved by transitioning the patient to living as the opposite sex, puberty-suppression can seem like a desirable approach.

But most children who identify as the opposite sex will eventually come to identify as their biological sex.

Until much more is known about gender dysphoria, and until controlled clinical trials of puberty-suppression are carried out, this intervention should be considered experimental.

Regardless of the good intentions of the physicians and parents, to expose young people to such treatments is to endanger them.

If you need to be 18 to buy smokes and get a tattoo….you should at least have to wait to alter your physical, hormonal, and psychological self until you are an adult.
That is just common sense.

Well good thing this wasn’t a measure twice cut once dilemma 😉 I just love this statement “Psychologists do not understand what causes gender dysphoria in children and adolescents.” I couldn’t imagine where in the world young kids get these ideas, can’t be predisposed from birth, so where. Well one was stated here, mum Alison had “broached” the transgender subject to (maybe upon) him. Yep, the parents are all into this agenda and there are numerous cases where parents/guardians force this change upon the innocence of children. Plus, the mainstream pushes this agenda. All this to mock God (Creator; His creation; His likeness), destroy the family (also uses homosexuality), and destroy men by feminizing them and make them not to be desired.

There are Youtube videos showing parents actually encouraging their children to identify as “gender fluid”. There’s a sick video of a boy dressed as a female prostitute dancing like a stripper on a cat walk surrounded by a crowd of LGBTQ adults. I’ve seen Facebook posts by mothers who get annoyed if their boy/girl does something that ordinary boys/girls do.

Make no mistake: the parents are almost always responsible for “gender” confusion by mentally abusing their own children.

So true. A lot of parents treat trans like a new trendy form of Munchausen by proxy.

I have an article with a lot of citations where Freud admit’s he developed psychoanalysis to “Destroy Christianity and Destroy America”.The Medical,Psychiatric and Pharmaceutical Industries are really destroying our society and youth.One of the main reason boys are less masculine (and women much prettier than when I grew up) is all the estrogen that is in our water supply now from the use of so many “birth-control” pills.The other is the soy in formula seems to block production of testosterone too.I feel sorry for this Generation being poisoned through so many physical and spiritual sources.

You should write an article for this site! What you said sounds very interesting and I’d love to know more of what you have to say on the subject, or even the Freud article.

How can we find this article you are referring to? It sounds very interesting.

I think this issue is extremely dangerous to expose young children to without further investigation on deciding to change sex. Giving Puberty Suppression drugs because a young person feels different is not an excuse to give those powerful drugs. We need to investigate what leads to Gender Dysphoria and the triggers which lead them to this psychological mystery. Personally i think that its society that is pushing children to more of a Feminine ideal. For some children they can just be who they are but for some during this stage are very sensitive to external ideas and opinions and which can mold their minds into thinking or even confusing them into thinking that they are not what society wants them to be. we do not realize how powerful society ideals and expectations can affect a young person mentally, physically as well as spiritually. From Reality Shows to Music Videos and everything in between can make a person indulge in feelings of not being good enough for society so they look for change and look to what they are exposed to in society as a way to change. This is just my opinion! In the end we need to find out… Read more »

Where was the father of the boy Patrick Mitchell?

Fathers are almost powerless in western society today – especially if the parents have separated.

Obviously ABSENT!

Hopefully more of these kids realize if this isn’t for them before too much damage is done! If they even have a choice…

The infuriating thing is that the likes of the BBC will never report this, instead they push a story about Christian parents who have taken their child out of a school because it had a “transgender” boy/girl/whatever in his class without consulting other parents. The BBC’s intention is there for all to see: shaming the Christian parents. The MSM is pushing the Overton Window to the hard left and they’re doing so at a very quick pace.

It’s telling that the first instinct of a mom, when her child is bullied at school, is something other than “the bullying must not continue, I will make my child impossible to bully.” WHY this is not the reaction of every similarly situated mother I’ll never understand. People are turning to dramatic surgeries and hormone replacement, when what they need is Karate…

So, he had cut his penis off in the past?

Wow! No way! You can’t convince me that a 12 year old boy wasn’t 100% sure he wanted to grow tits and chop his wiener off. You people are bigots.
