Yeah....movements like the one described...especially in the US...give me the heebie jeebies, since they tend to spread their influence all over the world.
We're waiting for the childhood bi-polar cult to spread here.
That being said, these kids and parents need acceptance and valuing....I'm just worried this thing'll go over the top into a fashionable thing, with heavy politicisation, and hasty labelling.
One of the things that interested me was that Brandon toned down his bathers choice once he knew he could have whatever he liked.
One of the things that kind of stuns me with a lot of the kids I've seen is that they go for an extreme 'female" look...like little drag queens.
You know...wanting to wear tutus and ballet slippers to school (like, what GIRLS do that?) and gyrating in their spangles like burlesque dancers.
Perhaps an effect of full acceptance is to modulate the rather manic aspects of how they express their preceived femaleness?
