We are all for transgender rights and equality and that love recognizes no barriers and rainbows. But we also believe in humanity and the notion that bizarre is bizarre no matter who is behind it. And this is way beyond bizarre.
Rumor has it a Canadian transgender dad left behind his family consisting of his wife and seven children to live his remaining life as a six-year-old girl. Bizarre is an understatement.
Married for 23 years, Stefonknee Wolschtt, 46, recently realized that she was, in fact, a transgender and decided to move in with an adoptive family as she doesn't "want to be an adult right now".
In a video series published by Daily Xtra, she admitted that she cannot deny that she was married or that she has fathered kids. But all she wants now is to move forward and start her new life right from the beginning.
She understands the rejection she has received from her family and thus Stefonknee left their home and now lives with an adoptive family who she says are 'totally comfortable' with her being a little girl.
Apparently her new adopted parents and their granddaughter wanted a little sister and Stefonknee was more than willing to shoulder the task.
It wasn't all roses and sunshine for her either. "She became suicidal and was hospitalized for a month after taking part in the first transgender march in Toronto back in 2009. After being discharged from hospital, her wife accused her of assault and harassment and even pressed charges against her to get a restraining order enforced." As per the source.
While she was invited to her eldest daughter's wedding but she had to 'dress like a dad' and observe silence. But that's all in the past. Thankfully, she now receives full support from the rainbow people at the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto.
