Conservative commentators and viewers are speaking out after Fox News aired a controversial story about two California parents who helped their 5-year-old biological daughter transition to become a boy named "Ryland."

The report was part of a Fox News series titled "America Together: LGBTQ Pride Month."

Fox News Correspondent Bryan Llenas explained in his report that Ryland's parents Jeff and Hillary Whittington began sex experimentation on the child after determining that "Before Ryland could even speak, 'he' managed to tell his parents that he is a boy."

"It wasn't him trying to be a brat," Ryland's mother Hillary said as the video showed Ryland wearing girl's clothes. "It was really painful for him to have to wear feminine clothing and for us constantly telling him you're a girl."

The LGBTQ agenda in schools is just one reason people are choosing to homeschool. Kirk Cameron spoke to CBN's Quick Start Podcast about it. Listen here.

"And unlike some trans kids, when Ryland came out at age five a few years later, he had the full support of his parents," Llenas stated in his report.

Ryland's mother also spoke about why she and her husband decided not to push back against Ryland's gender identity.

"And 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 before you here today," Hillary said motioning to Ryland and his sister.

The family is not new to the spotlight. Ryland's story went viral in 2014. Hillary wrote a book titled Raising Ryland: Our Story of Parenting A Transgender Child With No Strings Attached.

After Llenas' report aired, the network received almost immediate backlash on social media.

The Daily Wire's Matt Walsh wasted no time calling for everyone at Fox News who had anything to do with Llenas' report to be fired.

"I know for a fact that many people at Fox do not approve of this and never would have agreed to air radical far-left trans propaganda," Walsh tweeted on Friday. "But Fox reporter Bryan Llenas chose to do this story and someone at Fox chose to put it on the air. Everyone involved should be fired immediately."
