Really is interesting that this seems to afflict the children of so many celebrities. And conveniently too.

Dwayne Wade for example, is a known serial cheater and his wife Gabrielle Union was catching quite a bit of heat for not only looking the other way when he cheats, but for saying nothing when photographed with her husband's teammates clearly in the process of cheating on their girlfriends and wives. Not very girl power.

But one trans kid later, and all is forgiven. Some parents would just accept their effeminate son the way he is or maybe realize he might grow up to be gay and help him through that, but having a gay kid is so 2005. That won't get you on the cover of People Magazine anymore.

Side note: Remember when TRAs got super pissy because the story about Brad and Angelina's daughter being trans was wrong, and her parents were actually just treating her as a young, gender non-conforming girl? That was one of the moments I realized how anti-GNC trans activism really is.

First case that comes to mind is Chastity/Chaz Bono.

And if your mom was Cher, you, too, might decide to choose to reject womanhood rather than dress up in Bob Mackie wear.

Chastity Bono is a really sad case. My aunt was acquainted with her because they ran in the same lesbian circles back in the days before all lesbian communities & bars got turned into generic qweer spaces. My Aunt was so disappointed when Chastity transitioned. According to her, Chastity took it REALLY hard when her father died. And constantly being compared to Cher and seeing people joke about how fat and frumpy she was compared to her glamorous mother took a huge toll.

It makes sense to me because, ever since Chastity "became a man", nobody shits on her for being fat or not being as pretty as Cher

R Kelly has a lesbian daughter who went through an FTM phase for awhile. She said she got depressed while ID'ing as a man, and that she's happier now. I feel for her, having a dad like him.
