Child’s gender identity sparks legal battle

A judge has ordered the parents of a kindergartener to allow their son to pick his own clothes after his gender identity became the flashpoint of a bitter custody fight.

The child’s parents — whose names are under a publication ban to protect the identity of their son — are separated and disagreed about whether their son, who turns five this month, identified as a girl or a boy.

The Oakville mother believed her son identified as a girl and would often send him to school dressed in stereotypically feminine clothing. The mother also used the pronoun “she” to describe her son.  (more...)

Is this another lawyer joke?
