Actually there’s been some recent press about Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and how she is now presenting as much more feminine. She’s grown her hair out and wears more gender-conforming clothing than she has in the past. She just turned 15, and I just found that all to be very interesting…it seems like a lot of kids are “transitioning” at 12 and 13, or even younger if they are GNC, only to decide to detransion as they mature and exit puberty. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is a great example of why transitioning should not be pushed onto children.

I think her parents did just the right thing. She's an example of how it should be

My friend did this with her son. He was a very campy 3-7 year old. He loved to wear dresses, paint his nails, wore "makeup." Elsa was his favorite thing in the world. He wore her dress in public and had an Elsa birthday party several years. She let him do his thing. As he gets closer to puberty, he has lost some interest in stereotypical girly things and he's drifting more toward his older brother's interests. But he stills like certain "girly" things. My friend never made a deal about it. Hell, she supports his GNC ways. He's a happy healthy mentally well almost 8 year old. I'm so glad she didn't trans him.

it breaks my heart when I read stories like these, of GNC kids that are allowed to just lead happy, normal lives exploring their interests, feeling supported by their parents, and compare that to kids that are transed. I hope collectively we get past the trans kids craze soon.

Your friend is a good mother. Signed, a former GNC kid, current GNC adult.

I think her parents bear some responsibility in all of the scrutiny she has received over this. I think Brad was the one who publicly revealed she wanted to be called John and they've been known to do paparazzi shots with the kids.

In a 2008 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Brad opened up about raising Shiloh: “She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. It's a Peter Pan thing.

To be fair, this took place way before the trans child craze. At that time, it would just have been a cute story to tell about your kid who's a tomboy.

I remember in an interview Angelina saying Shiloh wanted to be some boy named “Mark” or something (not John) and rolled her eyes like people do when talking about their kids being, you know, kids.

It was at that moment I knew. Angelina Jolie is a TERF

Well, if you're going to let your child wear gender-nonconforming clothes, then the public is going to figure out something is going on. They did the right thing.

I really don't think Angelina asks for the paparazzi to follow her and her children, and she can't just lock them in the house until they grow up. Frankly, I'm amazed at how few pictures you can find of her kids online, so I think she's done a very good job of protecting her children.
