‘I can’t deny I was married. 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.’

Whether this is a true story or not, the above line may be the perfect encapsulation of our culture today. Pathological narcissism, check. Increasingly parodic refusal to be a grown-up, check.
(The news media dutifully adopt the preferred pronouns etc., as if the unglued person’s imagined world were real or normal and the rest of us have to adjust to it, rather than the other way around? Also check.)
A Canadian man who was married, with seven kids, has left his family in order to fulfill his true identity — as a six-year-old girl.
In an emotional video with gay news site The Daily Xtra in collaboration with The Transgender Project, Stefonknee (pronounced ‘Stef-on-knee’) Wolscht, 52, of Toronto, says she realized she was transgender — rather that simply a cross-dresser — at age 46, and split from her wife, Maria, after she told her husband to ‘stop being trans or leave’.
The made-up spelling of Stephanie is really a special touch.
Now, Stefonknee lives with friends who she cans her ‘adoptive mommy and daddy’ as a six-year-old girl, dressing in children’s clothing and spending her time playing and coloring with her adoptive parents’ grandchildren.
. . .
She says she’s living as a six-year-old girl because it’s something she could never do when was in grade school.
‘I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children,’ she says in the video. ‘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.’
But wait, it gets better…
She says she previously lived as an eight-year-old girl, until the couple’s granddaughter asked her to be the younger sister instead.

He’s not the only one behaving strangely. What kind of parents or grandparents would let a weirdo like this play with their children or grandchildren?
Till then, a verse or two from the Bible seem like as good a commentary as any.
