UPDATE: For any of you that didn’t know yet, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s child Shiloh has just fully come out as transgender. His name is John and he has wonderful accepting parents and family. This is what Leelah Alcorn gave her life for, and although we lost one beautiful girl, we’ve gained a beautiful little boy.
Suck on that intolerance.
UPDATE PART 2: OK so I wasn’t entirely right about him being fully out, but what I did read was that he goes by John and generally uses male pronouns. I wrote this post in a flurry of trans related excitement so I’m sorry for any miscommunication.
Still one up on intolerance though, and Brangelina are great parents.
“I think she (Shiloh) is fascinating, the choices she is making. And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not.I think that is just bad parenting… Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth. Society always has something to learn when it comes to the way we judge each other, label each other. We have far to go.” (x)
Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style,” she said. “It’s how people dress there.She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy.She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.” (x)
“Shiloh is very aware that I hold refugee families in high regard and has been asking to come on missions and meet them for many years,” Jolie Pitt tells PEOPLE. “She had heard about Hala since my last visit to Lebanon, and has been wanting to meetherand her brothers and sisters.” (x)
