An English judge has removed a boy from his mother’s care, who was living his life as a girl, saying that the mother’s misplaced belief that the boy identified as a girl has caused him “significant emotional harm,” The Guardian is reporting. The case calls into question whether or not the boy in question actually identified as a girl, or whether his overzealous mother simply treated him as if he were a girl.

Justice Hayden has ordered that very few details about the case — including the city in which he had lived, or the names of the social services agencies that had been involved in his care — be revealed to the public, lest an “information jigsaw” be revealed that could lead to the boy’s identity being discovered.

“I was also left in no doubt that [the mother] was absolutely convinced that [the boy] perceived himself as a girl. [The mother] believes herself to be to fighting for [her son’s] right to express himself as a girl.”

The boy came to the attention of English child welfare authorities about three years ago, after his non-custodial father, who was divorced from the boy’s mother, expressed concerns about how little time the boy’s mother was allowing the father to see him. Once a “low-ranking” judge entered into the custody dispute, a variety of people — including social workers, school officials, and even the boy’s doctor — began having contact with the boy. Hayden says that any and/all of those people should have noticed that something was amiss with the boy.

In fact, says the judge, “flares of concern” from a “whole raft of multi-disciplinary agencies” raised concerns about the boy, but that those concerns were “summarily dismissed.”
