Josie Romero – the eight-year-old girl born a boy (9 pics)

Posted in Pictures   19 Oct 2009   / 20670 views

Josie Romero (born Joseph) knew at the age of four that she was the wrong sex and she even told her parents: 'I am really a girl.'
At five, she was refusing to have her hair cut. When she was six, Josie was diagnosed as transgender, so she began her transition to become a female.
Her mother - Venessia, 42, said: 'When she was a toddler, she was always trying to turn her boy toys into girl toys. As she grew older and started to talk, she always said: "I'm a girl".
We used to correct her and say: "No you're a boy". But by the time she was four, she was insisting: "No I really am a girl". We started to realise she wasn't just playing. She would always correct anyone who called her a boy. She'd wrap one of my scarves around her waist to make a skirt. It was her favourite game.

‘She looked kind of androgenous by the time she was five and people would always ask if we had a girl or a boy,' said Venessia.
When she reaches the age of 12, she will be given female hormones containing oestrogen and she will need to have surgery when she is an adult in order to become a full woman.
Josie says: 'Being a girl is nice because I get to bake and cook in the kitchem wear long hair and earrings.'

better to know now than to turn into a drag queen or hide her sexuality...thank god she had open minded parents...things like this aren't always ugly or bad or wrong...mistakes happen, some of them show themselves in physical invalidity, some in serious genetic illnesses, and some are, well, like this case, transgenderism!

I am so happy for you Josie. You have great parents who are saving you from years of pain and suffering.
I knew I was a girl by the time I was four years old.
It took me many years to finally live as a woman and I never look back.
Pink is not my color and I do not like to wear dresses.
I mostly wear jeans and a blouse but I sometimes wear a skirt to church.
I wear my hair on the shorter side.
Not much on makeup here.
BUT I AM A WOMAN and always have been, no matter what my physical body told me.
Josie, enjoy your life.
Josie's great understanding parents, enjoy both of your daughters.
Anyone with negative opinions, well it's just NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

Shame the stupid little stuck up boy. He was born a boy and is a boy. Give him a big mirror and let him see his face and let him hear is voice. He is putting it over for publicity. Shame him in front of everyone tell his comes down to earth and acts normally. Long hair and a doll do not male him a girl.

Josie is an inspiration to a lot of people, including me. I don't think people fully understand how painful and agonizing this problem can be when left unchecked.

Her parents ARE great for letting her be herself.
