Oh! They’re a great pair, this one.

They say BOTH their kids are trans-gendered and got transitioned.

The kids’ ages?

Eight and five years old!!!!

Who the fuck does that to their kids?

And what doctor performs surgery like this?

Someone please tell me this is a joke.

But it isn’t.

It’s Berkeley.

The parents of two transgender children have told how they supported them unconditionally, after they both decided to transition to the opposite sex from an early age.

Ben Faryna and Sara Kaplan, from Berkeley, California, welcomed a biological daughter and then a biological son, to their family.

But at the age of eight, James Kaplan, now 11, who was born a biological girl, realised he had to transition from female to male.

And just a few years later Olivia Kaplan, now 7, who was biologically born a boy, realised at 4 that she wanted to transition from male to female. Their names at birth have not been revealed.

The family are now sharing their story with the hope of breaking the taboo around trans children, after statistics revealed an alarming number of suicide among trans children whose families are not supportive.
Sara told Barcroft TV: ‘The reaction when people hear that we have two trans kids is shock and awe.

‘A lot of people think that it must be a copycat situation where the younger one is just mimicking the older one.’

In reference to Olivia’s transition, Sara said: ‘It was less shocking because we had just had a child transition – we had educated ourselves about gender.

‘We were far more experienced in how to move through the transition as parents,’ added Ben.

When James was eight, he began socially transitioning. He had a haircut, shopped for boy’s clothes and asked his peers to use male pronouns.

Last year, he changed his name to James legally.

‘I have always been a boy,’ James said. ‘Before I transitioned, I had a piece missing and it didn’t feel right.

‘I was nervous to tell my parents, but when I did, they said they accepted me. I was happy because I know a lot of trans kids don’t have that, and that’s sad.’

Olivia added: ‘Being trans means you were born in the gender that you don’t feel in your heart – anyone can be whoever they want to be, and it doesn’t matter what your opinion is.’

When Olivia told James about her transition, he was very proud of how brave she had been.

However, like with most siblings, he admits there was the usual competitiveness.

‘I reacted to Olivia transitioning like most older siblings would – even though I’m trans,’ James explained. ‘I was a little confused at first and got a little defensive because I thought it was my thing.

‘But after like a day of that, I saw that Olivia is a girl and she always will be.’

For Olivia, having her big brother understand was key: ‘He was my first supporter and it made me feel very confident that I would have many more.’

A month ago, James started hormone blockers – an implant which prevents him beginning puberty, notably his menstruation cycle and breast development, which would be distressing.

When discussing the decision, James said: ‘I’m a guy, and if any other guy thought about being a woman, that’s uncomfortable.’

James is now waiting to begin testosterone, which would be the first permanent action he takes towards transitioning as the process would affect his fertility.

Olivia, however, is too young to have any medical treatment for her transition yet.

Sara explained: ‘We have lots of time as she’s only seven – the first thing would be a hormone blocker and that’s not until she would hit the tanner stage two of puberty, so for now, we follow her lead.

‘And we parent, for those who think we just follow our children around doing nothing,’ quipped Ben.

Ben and Sara want to educate those who accuse them of imposing an agenda on their kids.

‘The reason that we chose to be public at this point is because having two transgender children is not that unique, but it’s very difficult to advocate for the second child without it looking like there’s a problem in the house,’ Sara explained.

‘It looks like there is an agenda,’ she said. ‘Like the mother is sick, and that’s not the case here.’

Ben added: ‘It tends to fall on the mother, and I get feedback that I’m just complicit and just sitting here watching, which is untrue – I am a faithful father, and I love my children dearly.’

Naturally, there were times where the process wasn’t easy.

‘There was a grieving process for me when they transitioned, and it wasn’t because I didn’t love them anymore. It had to do with my own misunderstandings and my own biases. It had to do with navigating a world that I knew nothing about,’ Ben explained.

Ben and Sara, through learning and teaching others, are determined that their children live without stigma.

‘We are on the right side of history and we are not going to allow our kids to feel shame or fear based on other people – they deserve to feel loved and accepted.’

‘We are going about this because we are listening to our children and because are doing a lot of research, which has proven we are doing the right thing,’ Ben added.

    It’s too late to sterilize the parents, but the 2 turds should have their genitals atomized by radiation ASAP!

    By looking at the family, they should be in a circus freak show.

    Between the surgeries and the pills, I doubt that either of the two children will ever be able to reproduce and pass their Stoopid Genes on to another generation.
    But the parents………..I want to Bitch Slap them into the next decade, so that when they wake up, they will feel the full wrath of their children that they’ve screwed over.

    This is a self-correcting problem. All the LibIdiots that buy into this will be dead within a generation, and all the offspring they’ve mentally and physically mind fucked into following along, will be dead within the next generation.

    In a normal society, these two parents would be removed from the gene pool post haste. Woodie nailed it though, in a generation, these useless pieces of excrement and their progeny will all be gone. Oh darn…
