Transgender Girl Transitions Back to Boy After Mother Switched His Gender at 12
Liberal mom gave young boy estrogen hormones to transition him to a girl
A young boy is struggling to transition back to his born gender after his liberal mother gave him estrogen hormones when he was 12 to turn him into a transgender girl.
Patrick Mitchell's mom dressed him in girl's clothing as a child and started giving him her own prescription of estrogen pills after doctors refused to medically transition him into a girl.
At 12-years-old, Patrick's mother eventually found a doctor willing to diagnose him with gender dysphoria – a condition where a person experiences distress because there is a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity.
Two years later, 14-year-old Patrick says he's extremely uncomfortable with people referring to him as a girl and wants to transition back to his born gender.
The Australian school boy now says he "doesn't feel like a girl" despite the changes in his body resulting from the hormone medication that has caused him to grown breasts.

Independent reports: He grew out his hair and started to take the hormones, which caused his body to grow breasts. But two years on, Mitchell had a change of heart.
In the beginning of 2017, teachers at school began to refer to him as a girl which triggered Mitchell to question if he had made the right decision.
“I began to realize I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he told Now To Love.
As a result, Mitchell confided in his mother and explained that he wanted to transition back into a boy.
“He looked me in the eye and said ‘I'm just not sure that I am a girl’”, his mother explained.
Now, in a bid to revert back to his original body, he has stopped taking his medication and is about to have an operation to remove excess breast tissue in what will be the final stage of his transition.
While gender dysphoria is rare, the number of people being diagnosed with the condition is increasing, due to growing public popularity of transgenderism.
A survey of 10,000 people undertaken in 2012 by the Equality and Human Rights Commission found that 1% of the population surveyed was gender variant, to some extent.
