Earlier this year, LGBT enthusiasts hailed two parents as “heroes” for turning their five-year-old daughter into a boy after she insisted they see her as such. Their parenting style, deemed by many as negligent at best and abusive at worst, has finally gone mainstream with Hollywood sweethearts’ Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie carrying the banner.
According to various leftist sites, including The Advocate, the recently married couple now reportedly “support” their eight-year-old daughter Shiloh’s “decision” to both wear suits and be referred to by the name “John.” See photo of Shiloh’s makeover below:
The news has been in the making for years. As far back as 2008, when Shiloh stood at age two, Brad Pitt told Oprah that she insisted on being called “John.” His words were echoed in 2010 when Angelina Jolie told Vanity Fair “[Shiloh] 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.”
The Telegraph has since used Shiloh’s story as a vehicle to help spread some pseudo child-psychology, advising parents to “allow their child to go through a normal human experience exploring their own identity at their own pace and on their own terms.”
God be with little Shiloh.
