Stefonknee Wolscht, a 52-year-old father of seven kids, recently explained why she self-identifies as a 6-year-old girl and doesn't "want to be an adult right now" (video below).
Wolscht says in a video produced by The Transgender Project: "I was trans before we married. I was a trans parent for 23 years. It floored me, it scared me because I didn't know how to not be trans."
Wolscht, who works plowing snow in Canada, also revealed her estrangement from her wife and children.
“I can’t deny I was married,” Wolscht told the Daily Xtra. “I can’t deny I have children, but I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child. I don’t want to be an adult right now, and I just live my life like I couldn't when I was in school.”
I have a mummy and a daddy, adopted mummy and daddy who are totally comfortable with me being a little girl. And their children and their grandchildren are totally supportive.
In fact, their youngest granddaughter, when I was eight, a year ago I was eight, and she was seven, and she said to me, "I want you to be the little sister, so I’ll be nine."
I said, "Well, I don’t mind going to six." So I’ve been six ever since. But we have a great time. We color, we do kids stuff, it's called play therapy.
No medication, no suicide thoughts, we just get to play.
The Transgender Project website states that it "is an online collection of profiles designed to record, share and celebrate the personal stories of transgender women and men from across Canada; stories of struggle, of courage and of triumph."
