Melbourne, Dec 29: Australian Family Court's verdict had raised another controversy. The court granted permission for a school boy to change his gender.  Few days back the boy filed a petition in the Family court to seek legal permission to change the gender.

The school boy took this decision after he learnt, that his sperms are frozen. Hence, he wanted to have children in future by changing gender.

A female judge of Family court in Australia has permitted him to undergo a drug treatment. The boy would be under the medication of pseudonym "O," that changes him as woman before puberty fully takes hold, The Daily Telegraph in Sydney reported.

Justice Linda Dessau said, “the boy was matured enough to take this decision. My decision was backed by his parents, six specialists and the boy's independent lawyer. He have a family who love and respect him."

Judge was also learnt that the boy was desperate to become a woman and once he took extreme step of swallowing a lead solder at his school.  The schoolboy's identity was not revealed to anyone.

This is not the first time the Australian law allowed teens to undergo sex change. Six years ago a 13-year-old girl and 12-year-old girl was let to take drug treatment to become a man.
