The difference between abuse & neglect and genuine love for a child that may be trans.
My classmate made and offhan comment na “natatakot siya” that I let my son play with lipstick, wear tiaras, paint his nails, and walk around declaring that he’s Princess Anna, complete with cape.
Number one, he’s having fun! He’s asking to do all these things and why deny him that sometimes-crinkle-nosed, sometimes-wide-eyed smile?
Number two, at two years old, it doesn’t mean anything? Other than, he likes it. It doesn’t correlate with sexuality or gender preference or anything. All it probably correlates with is how much time I’m going to have to hunt around the house to find my makeup.
But number three, even if it did mean anything — does it mean anything bad? Does it mean to make him less? Does it mean it is, as my classmate put it, something to be afraid of? I really really don’t see why it would.
Does it mean my son is happy? Yes.
Best parent right there.
