HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Bo Frank and his partner Thomas Luna were there when little Sakoda Frank was born six years ago. They adopted the baby boy and raised him as their own.

But last Christmas, Sakoda declared that she was a girl.

"From the time she was two to four, that's all I heard: 'I wish I was a girl, I wish I was a girl,'" said father Bo Frank.

"And then when I was five, I became a girl!" exclaimed Sakoda, sitting in Frank's lap.

"She said, 'Dad, I am a girl,'" Frank continued. "And at this point, you know -- stuff got real."

At first, it was a difficult situation for her parents, even though they say there were signs as Sakoda grew older.

"We'd hand her a football. She'd get rid of it and go get a doll," said Frank. "We'd give her Spider Man or Iron Man, and she'd go to Hello Kitty. You know, she always gravitated to those kinds of things, so it wasn't that big of a surprise."

Even though it wasn't that big of a surprise, Frank said, "You have hopes and dreams for your child, and then when something like that comes about, all these worries pop into your head. Is she going to be safe? Yeah, she's safe when she's with us. But when she's not with us, are people going to tease her? Are they going to pick on her? Are they going to hurt her?"

So far, the family members say they've been very lucky. Her older brother has accepted the change, and they've received support from their friends and her school, which allows her to use the girls restroom.

But how does a young child make such a decision?

"I tell them it's not a decision," Frank responded. "That's who they are, and they know who they are."

Frank and Luna recently stepped down as cheerleading coaches at Radford High School after winning eleven straight state titles so that they could focus on their family. They're also pleased that the state Department of Education is working on a policy for transgender students.

Frank said most people don't know the difference between sex and gender.

"Sex is anatomically and biologically what makes you male or female," he said. Gender is more like social, psychological and emotional characteristics that are influenced by society."

Six-year-old Sakoda said she is transgender. When asked what that means, she replied, "Where a girl feels like a boy and a boy feels like a girl."

"Pretty good definition," said Frank.

Frank said the family decided to go public after the mass shooting in Orlando that killed 49 people at a nightclub.

"The whole Orlando thing just brought stuff into perspective for us, you know? The community faces a lot of challenges, and by sharing our story I think we can help other people with transgender children."

There are still many worries ahead as she grows up, but the family said it is prepared.

"It was hard. It was hard," said Frank. "But seeing how happy she is, getting to wear that dress she always wanted, or putting up her hair with the bow -- I mean all that worry just goes away."

That's what used to be called child abuse.

Kid should be pretty squared away as it grows up.

this is messed up. shouldn't he wait untl puberty?
Link Posted: 6/19/2016 12:06:26 AM EDT
When I was a kid, the kid didn't tell the parent how the world ran....And parents didn't encourage them to do so. Ok Johnny you want to do girl stuff fine, but you're a boy. Use the boys room! Until they go through puberty discourage the behavior. Many go through phases when they want to be something else or someone else. To me this is child abuse at this age.

These. Hey, let's allow queer "marriage", and let the two who CANNOT reproduce adopt children into their unnatural relationship. It's not like anyone besides the two queers are in any way effected by it...

Parents have victimized themselves with confirmation bias of their own bullshit opinions.

They have victimized their kid as well. Once they approve the "crossing over": surgery for their kid, the abuse will be devastating.

Fucking kid doesn't even have a sexual identity yet, and these fucking morons are assigning all sorts of adult logic to it (projecting their perverse desire that their kid will (a) "be just like them" and (b) allowing them some popularity in their little community). It's better than being able to brag that little Jimmy won the spelling bee.

It's like me saying that my dog staring off into space is proof he's contemplating the existence of God.

Morons.

It's amazing how all the "gendered toys" thing the left screams about gets thrown out the window so quickly.

Also that this is what some people think "makes you a girl".

Makes you wonder where they're getting these Hello Kitty stuff and dolls around the house in the first place if it's an all-male household.

I wish it wasn't so.

Parents that live vicariously is nothing new.

Unfortunately , these days the stakes are higher.

These people that think they are so forward thinking, progressive , and enlightened. Simply do not know what they are in for.

They have championed a future generation of sociopathic narcissists. Some things can't be undone overnight.

I'm sorry, but this will hurt. A lot....

One of these days you will look upon the disaster that stands in front of you and know, that you are to blame.

Yayyyy diversity

Oh, the "parents" know exactly what they're doing. It's two guys. I'm positive the kid didn't decide this on his own.

Who's the boy's original parents, and what issues with them? Boy must have had issues to begin with, including abandonment by parents and stuck with two gay men.

Fine being gay but to raise a family messes the kids up

Weren't there two previous cases, very similar, where the parents were gay activists?

You nailed it perfectly. In their crazy fucking reality, they probably believe that being homosexual partners and having a transgendered child somehow elevates their status to celebrities in their community. They couldn't have had just a normal Hetero child, that would have been too mundane for their refined progressive palettes.The child shouldn't even be dealing with gender issues at this point but it was forced on him. Poor fucker never stood a chance. Welcome to a world where those freaks create designer children with gender issues of their choosing! Collect them all!

The photo says it all. The dads were both cheer coaches and that's all the little boy was exposed to. He wanted to be a girl so he could be one of their cheerleaders and have the love of the dads. He wanted to play with the doll because everybody he was exposed to was playing with dolls.

Fucked up parents = fucked up childhood.
