Those are just some of the words I’ve heard used to describe my 9-year-old daughter and others like her. As her family, we’ve had our share of run-ins with those who disagree with us since her social transition 5 years ago. Some of the gentler conversations stemmed from a lack of understanding about what it meant to be transgender and how a young child could understand themselves in those terms. I welcomed those discussions because they were usually coming from a desire to be educated. I still love having them when the opportunity presents. However, my husband and I have had other conversations filled with intrusive questions filled with implications about my husband’s role in the family, why I wasn’t stepping up and “being the parent” and if there was a history of sexual abuse. Without exception, thoseconversations came from people who called themselves Christians. MORE OF ARTICLE
