[This episode originally aired 3.26.2016] The CNN digital short film, "Raising Ryland," and book of the same name chronicles a 5-year-old's transition from girl to boy and the parents pledge to raise him with "no strings attached." In this week's broadcast, John takes issue with the therapist who advised the family during this process. The therapist, Darlene Tando, says that a person's gender is in their head and sex is in their biology, something she calls "biological gender." She claims that it is entirely possible for a person to have one gender in his/her head and a completely different one in his or her body. This claim, John says, has no scientific basis whatsoever and, as a psychologist himself, feels that it is unethical to tell parents to do something without scientific evidence. The fact is that young children often take on roles not assigned to them and their play often reflects this, whether it's pretending to be a cowboy or a mother or a police officer or a superhero. John believes firmly in the Christian position that God creates male and female and not something in between. He recommends that Christians who seek counseling go to a Biblical Counselor and directs them to Editor's note: John mentions that the child began claiming to be a boy after the birth of her younger brother. She began claiming to be a boy after the birth of her younger sister, not brother. More about John Rosemond at and
