The Consent of Child Sexuality

Tommy Lobel, now Tammy Lobel, age 11.

In London, the UK, a young boy has begun hormone treatments to become a girl. Thomas Lobel, at the age of eleven, is now Tammy Lobel, the child (son/daughter?!) of a lesbian couple. According to the UK paper, Mailonline, the treatments began at the age of seven, when Tommy threatened to mutilate his own genitals because he was not a girl.

The implication of this is profound. Here is a young boy who is supposedly aware of his own sexuality to the point that he consensually undergoes changes to his sexual identity. This sexual self-awareness at such a young age has the potential for rending null and void statutory rape laws.

The fundamental premise behind such laws is that a child is incapable of consenting to sex with an adult due to a lack of sexual self-awareness. An adult who has sex with a child cannot claim consent without the assumption of some kind of manipulation and coercion. However, if a child is able to consent to sex with an adult because he or she fully aware of what is happening, then the law cannot assume that the adult was taking advantage of the child. It is no longer statutory rape. This has the potential to open the doors for equal rights for pedophilia.

There is an important observation that needs to be made with this story.  First, the story states the following:

At age seven, after threatening genital mutilation on himself, psychiatrists diagnosed Thomas with gender identity disorder. By the age of eight, he began transitioning.

This action shows that Tommy did not simply believe he was a girl, but had such a fundamental anger and hatred toward his own male genitalia that he wanted to do himself, or at least his genitalia, great harm. Tommy’s lesbian parents obviously have a problem with men, given that they married each other instead of each marrying a man. The raw hatred Tommy reveals towards his own maleness may be a reflection of his female parents harboring a negative view of men.

If a young girl had a profound hatred of her female body to the point that she threatened to mutilate herself, the first question would be if she had suffered some sort of sexual abuse, or at the least psychological abuse, at the hands of a mysognist father. Allowing, or encouraging, her to change into a boy would not be a first and immediate option.

  1. What were two man hating dykes doing, adopting a boy in the first place.

    The two mommies should be thoroughly investigated.

  2. Excuse me but you seem to be confusing the desire to *change sex* with wanting to *have sex*. Being a girl/woman has nothing to do with wanting sex, and the same goes for boys/men. Being male or female means more than just what’s between your legs; a human being is far more than a set of genitalia. There could be a whole host of reasons for wanting to change sex with none of them having to do in the slightest with the act of sex itself. Wanting sex and wanting a sex change are two completely different things and there are many reasons why someone may want to change sex with absolutely none of them in fact having anything to do with sexuality per se or only tangentially related to it at best. I think you are confusing gender with sex. It might help if you were to think in terms of someone wanting to change gender instead of them wanting to change sex.
