Boy With Gender Identity Disorder Allowed To Attend School As Girl

15 February 2010

Have anyone thought of crossdressing and go to school as a girl before? Well here’s a story where a boy with gender identity disorder allowed to attend school as girl

SAITAMA — An 8-year-old who was born a biological boy and suffers from mental problems caused by gender identity disorder has attended a public elementary school as a girl since last fall, a local education board in Saitama Prefecture said Friday.

The decision was made to make school life comfortable for the second grader who has had a desire to ‘‘become a girl’’ since kindergarten and begun to feel distress after entering the elementary school at having to stand to use the restroom, officials of the board said.

The school continues to keep him designated as a boy on its register.

There has been a case in Hyogo Prefecture where a boy was accepted to school as a female student. But making such a change while a student is in school is extremely rare in Japan, where schools generally struggle to cope with the agony students face with the disorder.

The boy in Saitama was diagnosed in March last year as having gender identity disorder, a term used to describe people facing a gap between their biological and mental sex identities, and his doctor recommended treating him as a girl so that he can adjust to school life.

After the diagnosis, the school told its students about the boy and the circumstances arising from his problems in September last year when they returned from summer break. His mother also explained the situation to the parents of his classmates and obtained their understanding, the sources said.
