Hey look, I’m reblogging. The irony. It hurts.
But seriously, I was very moved watching this. Though it truly is one of those amazing best-case scenarios where the parents actually value the happiness of their child above their own logic/expectations, it’s important that these kinds of stories are shared often with those who are totally in the dark about the “T” in LGBTQ. I’m so happy that this family took it upon themselves to create a video that can spread the joy & humanity that so many people lack in regards to those like myself who are transgender. With close to 4 million views in just a few days, I’m encouraged that this story is being spread along with many others. I just wish it didn’t seem like only the child transition stories have the power to penetrate society and change minds… Every story is different, and I’m hoping that mine will one day make a difference in someone’s life.
I personally will be emailing this video to my mum who, after ten months, is still “dealing” with my being a girl by continuing to use my birth name & male pronouns. Would you believe I have never emailed my own mum before? Please watch and enjoy~
