Trans woman, 46, living as 6-year-old?

I’m not sure what to make of this story: “A transgender woman (Stefonknee Wolschtt) has left behind her former life — including a wife and seven children — to live as a six-year-old girl with two adoptive “parents.” ”

It has been reported in several media outlets. The quote above comes from a report on the Queerty site.

I’m thinking it could be a hoax.

But, I do know that in the BDSM world, some people role-play as babies and such.

I dunno. Many of the readers commenting to the story suspect it is a hoax.

Nothing would surprise me.

What do you think?

  1. I’m not sure why you punted me from your Facebook etc., but if that’s what you prefer, I’ll limit all communication to a moderated commenter basis from now on.

    Anyway, please don’t feed the weasels. Stefonknee is a Canadian current or former activist, so I’d recommend reaching out to her directly if you want answers. The more this story is going through second-, third- and fourth-hand channels and opinion pages, the more it’s becoming this:

    Without getting her perspective, repeating the sensationalistic angle on this isn’t doing her any justice, nor is it helping any of the rest of us.


    1. I didn’t mean to punt you. I’ll re-add you.

      I know nothing about the Stefonknee story, which is why I reached out to readers here. I want to know more.

      Thank you for giving us some insight on the issue.

      By the way, I am not trying to sensationalize it. Simply reporting what I read.

      Thanks for the enlightenment.


        1. I’ve done some research. Apparently, she believes this is “play therapy” that will help her cope with stuff in her life.

          One comment came from a reader claiming to be a professional play therapist who says that one actually needs a therapist to engage in play therapy, and so questions the techniques being used here.

          My other question is: why has this case been made public? It seems obvious it would lend itself to ridicule, and be used by right-wingers as further “proof” in their minds that transgender people are mentally ill?
