A 16-year old autistic boy in Australia has been granted permission by a court to become a girl after he showed signs of being suicidal over the issue.

Justice Linda Dessau gave her nod to the request, saying that the boy was old enough to know what he wanted.

The name of the boy has been held in secrecy though it was revealed that he was so obsessed over the issue of becoming a girl, that he once swallowed a lead solder.

Justice Dessau said that the boy's decision has been backed by the parents though steps are being taken to store his sperm since the female hormones could make it difficult for him to have any children.
