TORONTO – A 52-year-old Canadian father who left his wife and seven children to live as a six-year-old girl now spends his time wearing children’s dresses and playing with the youngest grandchildren of his adopted parents.
Paul Wolschtt is a Toronto man who believes he is female. Six years ago, when he was 46 years old, he decided to leave his wife and seven children to assume a new identity as a young girl.
“I can’t deny I was married,” Wolschtt said in an interview published on YouTube by “Daily Xtra.” “I can’t deny I have children. But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child.”
Wolschtt, who is over six feet tall and formerly worked as a mechanic, now lives with an adopted family who has taken him in and supported his decision to live as a young female.
“I have a mommy and a daddy—an adopted mommy and daddy—who are totally comfortable with me being a little girl,” he said. “And their children and their grandchildren are totally supportive.”
“I don’t want to be an adult right now,” he added.
One of his favorite activities is to play with his adopted parents’ youngest granddaughters.
“We have a great time. We color, we do kid’s stuff,” he said. “It’s called play therapy. No medication, no suicide thoughts. And I just get to play.”
Instead of Paul, he now goes by the name Stefonknee (pronounced “Stephanie”). The apostate Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto reportedly supports Wolschtt’s lifestyle and helps him overcome suicidal thoughts.
Wolschtt said he hopes his story inspires others to embrace the “transgender” movement.
“I paid a pretty heavy price for transitioning,” he stated. “I’ve already lost everything, and everything has happened. I’m going to be me, and I’m going to show other people that it’s okay to be feminine for a guy.”
“When you see a guy that’s 300 pounds with a goatee that pulls in on a Harley and is going through my closet and saying, ‘Can I wear this dress? Can I kiss you while I’m wearing the dress?’ You don’t expect it,” he continued.
Wolschtt’s story reflects a broader cultural revolution sweeping across much of the Western world. In a recent Answers Magazine article titled “Transgender Identity—Wishing Away God’s Design,” Owen Strachan addressed the modern “transgender” movement, saying many people now view their bodies as blank slates to be used to achieve maximum personal happiness.
“The Bible teaches a very different perspective,” he wrote. “Our manhood or womanhood is not incidental; it has been given us by God as a gift. We inhabit our God-created bodies as vessels of delight, temples of the Holy Spirit, as Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:19.”
Strachan, who is president of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, encourages Christians to recognize the beauty of God’s design and then compassionately reach out to those who are confused about their identities.
“We may feel a visceral response to sin and its effects, but this response must never quiet our instinct to show mercy to lost people,” he proposed. “Transgender individuals will be increasingly common in our neighborhoods and communities. We have a choice: we can sinfully avoid them, or we can seek to reach out to them in kindness and conviction and evangelize them.”
Ultimately, the gospel is what’s needed more than anything, Strachan concluded.
“It makes sense of our humanity,” he wrote. “It restores our dignity. It calls us to be men and women who see our body as a gift, a vessel by which we may give glory to our Maker and Redeemer.”
