It’s about how “we” are forcing kids to change their bodies to conform with stereotypical assumptions about what is “girl” and what is “boy,” and using the language of “choice” and “support” to justify this brutal enforcement of the status quo.
It’s about child abuse and projection.
It’s about real sadness.
It’s about making children pay for our inability to accept that one is born Male or Female, the rest is just made up.
