When Ryland was born in 1997, he was born with what was then a very misunderstood condition. Ryland Whittington, alhtough he appears as if he was a Girl, is really a Boy.
For the first 5 years of Rylands life, societal misunderstanding and the label "Tomboy" kept him living the life of a Girl. Pink bedroom, pink ribbons in his hair and cute little dresses were all part of young Rylands' life until the fateful day when 5 year old Ryland spoke up and said "When the family dies, I will cut my hair so I could be a boy" through a tear filled face, Ryland pleaded "Why did God make me like this?"
Ryland's parents, Jeff & Hilary Whittington jumped into action and soon realised the source of young Rylands' growing sadness was a sort of shame feeling of having to dress and act as a girl, when in fact, Ryland was a Boy, sadly born with the body and outward appearance of a Girl.
Transgender, also known by other names such as Harry Benjamin Syndrome, Gender Identity Disorder and a few less than flattering definitions, effects a large part of society. Statistics show, 41% of individuals by early Gender Misidentification attempt suicide as those around them simply do not understand who they really are. As loving parents, Jeff & Hilary were not going to let their son, Ryland, join those very sad statistics. <em style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.5em;">"We signed up as Parents, with No Strings Attached."[/i] stated Rylands Mom and Dad, in the now Viral YouTube video about Ryland Whittington and his transition to becoming a healthy, happy and truly understood boy.
When Jeff & Hilary Ryland sent out a letter notifying their friends and family about young Ryland's condition and subsequent transition, some of the recipients did not agree "We lost a few, but the people who truly matter stuck by us."
Speaking at a recent Harvey Milk equality fundraiser, a very brave and happy Ryland stood tall and proclaimed "I AM A BOY"
Hopefully these words of strength, and the growing interest in the Whittington family YouTube Video about Ryland and his Transition, will help educate others, thereby ensuring more young lives are not lost through the fear and misunderstanding of those around them
