Megan Hayes says the moment she realised her young daughter was different from her two older sons is still clear in her mind.
The four-year-old, Hayes said, “wanted to cut it off. She just didn’t want it there. She didn’t think it belonged there.”
Born Ronan, Megan and husband David Hayes say their third child began showing dysphoric behaviour early on in life, preferring dolls, wigs and dress-ups to more traditional boys toys.
