Is this Hindustan Times story, “Docs turn baby girls into boys,” for real, or is it “disinformation”? If it’s for real, it’s not. That’s because you cannot turn girl into a boy, anymore than you can turn a boy into a girl.
All that you can do is disfigure a child, and make him—in this case, her—crazy.
If the story is not made up, I can only imagine that these parents have much more money than sense, and have fallen for the sexual fairy tales of American media propaganda. Note, too, that (assuming the story wasn’t made up) wealthy Hindu Indians in India, who are obsessed with having boy children at any price, can engage in sophistry as fancy-sounding as any you’ll come across from American college professors.
I suppose there’s a certain poetic justice for those with extreme cases of shadenfreude, in that insane homosexuals have served the madness of insanely conservative Hindus. What makes this poetic injustice is that rather than the insane American homosexuals suffering, it is innocent Indian children 10,000 miles away who are being harmed.
The silver lining, if there is one, is that unlike the irreversible butchering of a boy in the vain hope of turning him into a girl, the equally vain attempt to turn a girl into a boy may be surgically reversible, though the madness caused by the girl’s parents’ vanity will in some cases not be curable.
