This exactly. I have a bogstandard tomboy daughter and have had so many people attempt to "validate" her that I no longer let her leave the house without a piece of jewelry or a headband. It's like hanging a string of garlic around her neck before sending her in to vampires.

I can relate as my middle child was bullied into being transed based on her clothing and her haircut. It had gotten so bad that she didn’t like going to school because she had constantly deal with this. They would act like she is cool only if she is a trans but a nobody if she isn’t. It had messed with her head and heart. Perfect analog about girl jewelry or hair accessories as garlic!!!! That is what I do too with earrings etc.
