LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — When John Jolie-Pitt told his famous parents some five years ago at age 3 that he wanted to be call John, they were okay with it. As he grew older, he exhibited more and more masculine tendencies and his parents were cool with that, too.
While we don’t know which gender expression John will ultimately have as an adult, we do know that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are doing absolutely right thing — accepting their child for exactly who he is without question.
John is going to have huge advantage over the tens of thousands of transgender kids who are suppressed by their parents — questioned, or even humiliated over every minor facet of behavior varying from society’s “norms” for their birth gender.
A child, or an adult for that matter, cannot know who they are unless given an opportunity to explore their identity. If suppressed, a sky-high chance of suicide awaits them.
Kudos to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for doing the right thing for their child — and by the way of their high media profile, help set straight confused parents of trans kids around the world.
