Everything you've blah-blahed about, I am already aware of.
But, WE don't know the full details of this story.
Just because the mother "said" doesn't make it Truthful, Factual.
What if the mother's head is screwed up?
As in, she would have prefered a female child instead of a male?
That could cause her to cross dress the child, especially if she is psychologically unsound as SO many parents are today.
If this child is experiencing ridicule and difficulty at School due to cross dressing, which appears to be the case, I don't believe he would CHOOSE to continue dressing in a fashion that brings distress.
Five year olds don't need this type of peer pressure.

When children are not happy about being the sex they are
A few children feel deeply unhappy about being a boy or being a girl.
This can be a problem when a child continues to believe he or she is, or wishes he or she was, the other sex. Because it is not usually possible for people to change their sex (at least until they are grown up and then it is very difficult) it is very important that they can be happy with themselves as they are.
This kind of problem can start from birth or before, or at a very early age.
Usually if the child really wishes to be the other sex you will notice:
persistent cross dressing especially into the primary school years
always playing with other sex's toys (for example a boy always wanting to play with toys that are usually thought of as girls' toys)
usually drawing the other sex (for example boys usually drawing pictures of girls and women)
the child persistently saying that she belongs to the other sex or wishes she was
the child persistently saying that when she grows up she will be the other sex.
Sometimes parents worry that children who go on dressing in the clothes of the other sex over a long period of time will be homosexual.
Even though homosexuality is accepted as a normal expression of sexuality for some people, parents may worry that their children will be unhappy or may feel uncomfortable about it themselves.
Many children do not grow up to be transgendered or homosexual, however some do."
