Finding Your Own Happiness or the Sin of Pride?Sarah Kepins | December 28, 2016
Six years ago in Toronto, Canada, a forty six year old man formally known as Paul Wolscht, decided to leave his wife of twenty three years and seven children to become a six year old little girl and live with a new family. Paul, now Stefonkee Wolscht, is living with a new family and has an adopted mother and father as well as their grandchild who acts as Stefonkee’s older sister. With the help of The Daily Xltra in partnership with The Transgender Project, Stefonkee has openly told his story in a video. He says that she is happy and is not looking back. He said the following about his previous life, “I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children. I’ve gone back to being a child. I don’t want to be an adult right now.”
The problem with this situation among many things is that “Paul” has completely abandoned his family. Twenty three years ago, he made a promise to his wife, a promise that he would always be there for her and that he would never leave her. However, now he has completely pushed them out of his life and has chosen the path of his happiness and what makes him happy. That is the whole problem with the LGBTQ community. They focus on the individual and what makes them happy without thinking of the consequences. Now, his family has to pick up the pieces and move on without him. The other problem with this is that if you disagree with them you are considered to be intolerant and hateful. “Paul” clearly has mental issues as no normal person would act this way. Instead of playing into his fantasies and allowing him to live this way, we should find a way to help him as he clearly had a dysfunctional childhood and wants to go back and live the childhood he never had.
