‘OMG! What is this world coming to?’ is a statement someone made to express his frustration. It may come as a surprise to many but a five year old boy has rejected his gender and now living as a girl with the support of his family, doctor and school. Crazy you might say but Zach Avery was only three year old when he started questioning his gender, and began wearing dresses and ribbons in his hair. This must have cause a distress to his family. I mean what would you do if your little baby boy began to hate himself and his appearance? With a psychological evaluation treatment, Zach was diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID), and has now been living as a girl for more than a year.

Gender Identity Disorder is when a person struggle with his/her physical gender and feels like they’re tripped in the wrong body. This is exactly what Zach felt like, although one will say he is too young to understand what he’s feeling and it’s simply a ‘phase’ which he will grow out off. But in the words of his mother Theresa Avery, right until the age of three Zach was a regular boy who loved Thomas the Tank Engine, but he suddenly became obsessed with Dora the Explorer and started dressing in girl’s clothes.

Keeping in mind, this women is a mother to three other children so we can’t assume that, he is her first child and that is why she’s making a fuss about him.  She revealed to the Daily Telegraph that Zach’s anguish at being a boy was such that

he used to cry and try to cut off his willy out of frustration.

After NHS doctors officially diagnosed Zach with GID, Zach is known to be one of the youngest affected children in the UK. They told his mother that although he had a male body, his brain was telling him he was a girl. Zach has received a tremendous support from this primary school. They have allowed him to be dressed as a girl and also changed the school toilets to Unisex. The school has been very supportive and Zach had not experienced any bullying from other children. This is because they’ve explained to the other kids at the school that Zach’s body was that of a boy but in his brain he was a girl.

According to the Tavistock and Patman Foundation Trust in London, where Zach was diagnosed, 165 children received a GID diagnosis in the past year, of which only seven were under the age of five.
