    They need to move to California, she would be excepted and be able to use a girls bathroom at school. She would probably do just fine having overnights with other children!

    He. I don’t condone this fckery. Why is he so focused on gender? He should be worrying about games and playing, like every other boy and girl

    It hurts that people can’t just treat everyone like another human being. I myself am trans and the world is very cruel. I hope she grows up in a kinder society

    This is disgusting. There is no way a child that has not entered puberty could have this type of feeling. This is child abuse. She will end up a mentally messed up adult.
