Queries such as:
- What bathroom does your child go to?
- How can a child know if they're a boy or girl?
And my favorite...
- Why don't you just beat the right way into your child?
I know right? WTF?? Especially to that last one. But recently, I started getting a very unusual question from those who learn that I'm the mother of a transgender little girl.
"How do you take care of it?"
That's right. 'It'. She doesn't even get a gender.
I'm going to lay it down in the most basic manner possible.
She's not an 'it', she's a little girl. She's no different when it comes to teaching her anything. Taking care of her requires love, food, clothes, and ummm...yeah...more love. Simple as that.
