i can not even begin to understand how this family is dealing with these issues! i am sickened that anyone would use children in such a malicious slanderous way! this poor girl just went to school and wanted to be treated like everyone else. where is the crime in that? transkids go through enough struggling w identity, body image issues and depression. they are generally harassed by other students, called names. and made to be their own allies. thankfully this girl has a strong loving family who has been supportive, and has been treated decently for the most part by her peer group, but the media and anti-gay groups had no idea what her situation was, they attacked with venom and hatred! this leaves young transppl open to depression and other problems stemming out of rejection-drugs, alcohol, self harming behavior, suicide, i cannot image waking up and my children’s faces on the news while a reporter spews lies and filth! i am sure i wouldn’t take it as well as this family has. i hope this girl is ok. i hope from the bottom of my heart that she and her family find peace they so desperately deserve!!!
