whittington, the california teenager whose journey of transitioning has been seen by millions after the family shared his story on youtube. that's right. brian eunice spoke to the family about how they hope rather, their experience can help others. if you saw me walking down the street, you want it think anything different 14 year old ryland. winning tonight is a typical southern california teenager. and the whittington's, along with mom, hillary, dad, jeff and sister brinley are a typical family. the only difference, though, in ryland size is what this family can mean to the tens of thousands of kids under 18, who identify as transgender. we put our story out there so people can see that like there's another family out there that is going through what we're going through, or there's another family who's proud of who they are. before ryland could even speak. he managed to tell his parents that he is a boy. i could just see it it it wasn't
him trying to be a brat. it was like painful it was truly painful for him to have to wear feminine clothing and first constantly telling him that you're a girl. unlike some trans kids when ryland came out at age five. a few years later, he had the full support of his parents . initially there was some pushback from us and trying to understand this. we were confused, like most people are we thought that gender and sexuality where the same thing they took us a while to figure out that those two things are different, and that children actually do recognize their gender identity. very young, some of them not all, but they listened to ryland and to hillary's conservative faith. for me, it's just a deep spiritual belief that you believe in god. and he you know , created us the way he wanted us. well then, yes, he created violent just the way he is. and they listened to families they met in support groups. there was a father who was sitting across the table, he says. you have no idea how lucky you are to be here. which kind of took me back. i didn't at that point,
consider myself lucky to be there and he said, you know, our our childhood displayed. this gender dysphoria or this gender misalignments. that's at the same age that ryland has, and we didn't listen and we pushed back that pushback lead that child to turn to self harm as a teenager , which 60% of trans and non binary kids engaging. according to the trevor project more than 50. consider suicide. that for me was the turning point. i didn't want to see ryland to go through that rather have a living son than a dead daughter. i guarantee that if we had pushed back and done what a lot of parents do i don't think that we would have either one of the kids that you see before you here today him to live authentically and true to himself and be who he really feels like he is. when you get to know ryland, you see just how proud and confident he is of himself. island story got international attention in 2014 when a family youtube video went viral and hillary has since written a book. called raising
ryland. i never thought that i would be known for. this like as well as i am, but really, just a small part of who i am just brushed things off his shoulders like it's fine. he moves on in his life, and he's just kind of think everything we've been through. he's just like learned to do that, and he's really good at it. i could never do that. the whittington's believe sharing their story could make a lasting difference in another child's life. something they learned from that support group father nearly a decade ago, just here to make the ride, smoother for others might be struggling right now, but we believe in you family, we might not know you. we might not know where you live, but you know, we understand you and we believe in you. what extraordinary courage displayed by ryland. his mother, hillary, father, jeff and sister brinley. i want to thank the wigington family for speaking to us. it's not easy, particularly when transgender issues have been so politicized. you know,
people are afraid of what they often do not understand. the family hopes their story will lead to more understanding, more acceptance and ultimately more love. in new york. brian dennis fox news. really is such a great story, open support and love all around all around all around a lot of love healthy thing. all right. that's it for us tonight . thanks. so much for joining us sports wrap with joe and jason coming up next.
