Went on hormones at age 12 and then decided to stop at age 14.
Full story will air on 60 Minutes (CBS) Sunday night.

It appears this will only air on the Australian version of 60 minutes. Can anyone confirm this?

Maybe I'll have to find the Aussie version so the rest of us can see it.

Confirmed. This will air in Australia only, not anywhere else.

I found the full segment about it here though,

Let me know if your country or ISP blocks the link or video. If it does, I may consider running it on our private channels so our members can watch it.

I double check news anyway. At the time you posted it, I googled several articles confirming the story & show. Back then there was no mention of it being just the Australian version. That detail was probably deliberately omitted to promote the show which was competing with American football, & hurricane coverage in the USA. I saw no mention that segment in the TV listings though. But it is typical of news shows like this, 20/20, & Nightline not to list everything on the show, especially if it was a recently added segment. Many of the TV listings details are written up 7-10 days in advance.

It wasn't until the show aired, in the beginning when they introduce what will be on it, there was no mention about that segment, that I decided to look up the articles about the topic again. By that time almost all of them changed their article to say it was to air in Australia.

No need to apologize. We're international, so if it's something interesting, we want to know about it no matter what country it airs. By knowing it exists, we or I can look for other sources to see it.

BBC is notorious for blocking their shows to other countries. In the USA & Canada, many BBC TV shows aren't legally available to view for 6 months to 2 years after they aired, or are just never legally available in the USA. That's sort of dumb because within a week after it airs, if it was any good, it was discussed on the news, entertainment, media articles, & blogs. So by the time it airs in the USA, it's old news for us, & many of us won't bother watching.

And because the internet is international, by the time we can get it in the USA, most of us have at least already seen clips of the show that was unavailable in our country.

It all worked out. Because we knew the show existed, I was able to find the full segment of it.

Fortunately, Australia don't block as much of their TV programming to outside viewers as much as the BBC does.

Interesting story for sure. Seems to me the mother has been a facilitator or even possibly an instigator in what her son has gone through. The fact that she gave him female hormones at an age when he, personally, could not have made an informed decision about it was not a good decision and possibly even illegal. This woman needs therapy! Actually both she and he should have had proper medical therapy/counseling at the time he was experiencing his gender confusion. Even though he was diagnosed as possibly a transgender by some professionals, a 12 or 13 year old should not be taking sex hormones. But, instead, should be treated for any depression or suicidal thoughts as well as constant monitoring of the gender issue. One could argue that it might be good for a true transgender, whether a girl or boy, to not have to face puberty as the birth gender. But this is not a decision that a parent should take action on alone. Instead, he should have been allowed to start living full-time as a girl to see if he would actually conform to that role. I feel so sorry for him that he is now having to go through an even worse trauma of surgery to remove breasts and having to live with other changes to his body and mind that can't be fixed through surgery. Sad, indeed. But, hopefully this story will help other parents who may find themselves in a similar situation to better deal with it.
