4-year-old Australian child to undergo sex change operation

The procedure has been approved and the child will be Australia's youngest person to have his sex altered.

A 4-year-old child in Australia, whose name is withheld for privacy purposes, will undergo a sex procedure as he showing signs of being a transgender. It is expected that the procedure will be completed next year.

Even though the child's transition is supported by The New South Wales Department of Education's Safe Schools Program, which really helps transgender children, many psychologists and transgenders advocates are skeptical, saying that the child is too young to undergo such procedure.

Catherine McGregor, a transgender advocate, is expecting that the medical practitioners and the department will be extra careful on decision-making regarding the child as he is still too young to have official policy support.

A clinical psychiatrist, Rose Cantali, opposes the idea, saying that it is way too early for a 4-year-old child to experience sex change and that everything is still developing at that age.

On the other hand, Michael Carr-Gregg, a child psychologist, explained what really is a transgender in children.

"There is a huge difference in dress-ups and a child believing with every fibre of their being they are in the wrong body," he said.

A number of 250 children wherein some are just 3-year-olds, are also seeking help from Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital's gender dysphoria unit.
