Katie, a reader of this blog, sent me a link to a video clip about a 7 year old transgender child almost week ago, and I’ve sat on it, trying to figure out the best way to approach it.
In the end, I think it’s best if I just share it and allow you all to take from it what you will. I will say that (in my own family) while EZ loves pink, painted nails & dressing up like a princess, he is also very adamant that he is a boy and is both comfortable and confident about that point.
For me, having a son who just happens to dig traditionally feminine things and dealing with a transgender child are two wholly different sides of a similar coin. I’m not trying to compare or contrast, just simply passing along this video (that – for me – is bittersweet)… eager to hear your thoughts.
