Yes, you did read the title correctly. And yes, it does really imply that a man actually left his wife and seven kids to become a 6-year-old girl – here’s how he did it.
48-year-old Stefoknee (which is pronounced Stephanie) Wolscht revealed to his wife of 23 years that he is a transgender and a six-year-old. In an interview with DailyXtra, Stefoknee said:
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.
Stefonknee said her wife could not accept her as a transgender woman
Not only did Stefoknee’s wife told her not to become a transgender woman, she gave her an ultimatum – stop being trans or leave.
According to Stefoknee, stopping being trans was NOT something she could just do.
It would be like telling me to stop being 6ft 2 or leave.
Ms Wolsch ended up being rejected by her family and she moved to another house to live with her “adoptive parents”. They say that the couple is ‘totally comfortable with me being a little girl’.
Stefoknee’s new parents said their granddaughter wanted a little sister, so they decide that the new addition to the family should be younger than her – Stefoknee is 6.
Stefoknee, or Steffy, as she calls herself on Twitter, said:
We have a great time. We colour, we do kid’s stuff.
It’s called play therapy. No medication, no suicide thoughts. And I just get to play.
According to The Independent reports of the Transgener Project series, Stefoknee spoke about becoming suicidal and hospitalized about a month after the transgender march in Toronto (2009).
Ms Wolsch has suffered a lot since she left her family to lead a life of a 6-year-old girl. Back in 2012, her daughter inveted her to her weding under the condition that she ‘dresses like her dad’.
She also said that Stefoknee should ‘sit at the back of the church and not address any family members’. Unfortuntely, Steff attempted suicide on the day of her daughter’s wedding.
