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 just looked up the pictures and not only are they making a big deal about her having long hair but they're also calling her a "LGBT icon"?! Why are they so worried about a child's sexual orientation or gender identity?

LGBT is supposed to mean something. Why are they trying to make every single deviation from traditionally masculine male and traditionally girly female into a minority? This is literally the opposite of progress!

I think it’s taking its toll. My daughter is 13 and it seems like everyone in her friend group identifies as gay or bi. I’ve heard other parents describe the same about their kids, especially their daughters. It’s “cool” to be LGBT nowadays, but it’s almost like it isn’t cool enough to simply be gay or bi now that homosexuality is more accepted in our society - now they have to push the envelope and identify as “queer” or enby or trans. If kids nowadays are truly gay or bi, that’s perfectly fine, but I feel like teenagers especially are simply “trying on” the LGBT alphabet and using it as some sort of weird status symbol. I realize that it’s partially just a normal part of exploring identity during adolescence, but I also feel like it kind of negates the experiences of so many people I knew growing up (even just 10 or 15 years ago) who really struggled with their sexuality and coming out.

This is especially true for kids who belong to more "liberal" friend groups. Being an "oppressed" queer/trans person gives you more social clout than being a boring cis/het White kid.

By woke standards, anyone who isn't a walking gender stereotype 24/7 is LGBT/Queer. Which means 99% of the population is technically LGBT. Its ridiculous!
