Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

The Youngest Ever?

From London's Sunday Telegraph comes this headline: Unhappy as a boy, Kim became youngest ever transsexual at 12. From the article:
Tim was diagnosed as a transsexual two years ago, when doctors and psychiatrists concluded that his claims to be "in the wrong body" were so deeply felt that he required treatment.
...
Now aged 14, and officially registered as a female, Kim looks like a typical girl of her age. She dresses in fashionable clothes, has long blonde hair and blue eyes and dreams of moving to Paris to become a fashion designer.

And they used the correct pronouns, too.

    Youngest ever? What about the 5 year old in Florida?

    Hey, I just posted what the Telegraph said. But as a concession, I've modified the title slightly by adding the question mark.

    In Sweden no treatment is allowed before the age of 18. So even if we have several diagnosed transsexual persons yonger than 18 and everybody know they feel horrible and most of them die before 18 the laws are still the same.

    I hope that this and more European examples will change the view on TS-teens.
