Trans children were overjoyed this week to see @EmmaWatson come out for trans equality. Trans kids around the world are having a rough time & visible allies matter. Trans kids & siblings from around the world say thank you (thread). #IKnowWhoIAm #ProtectTransKids #Butterfly

#Butterfly hit home last night, it made me think what would of happened if when we took our depressed 5year old to the child psychologist, we'd had advice, now seen as harmful, to "keep it in check". Instead we listened to our child, went at their pace, & she's thriving.
We got lucky, we did the research, followed emerging best practice, & didnt cave to the intensive stigma of a society where trans children are either feared or obsessed over. By telling the world about trans children, #Butterfly will make it easier for parents with trans kids.
Parents are still being told, by relatives, GPs, & even by some of the 'specialists' to keep their children's gender 'in check', to repress, hide, & punish gender diverse behaviours & expression. This is harmful to trans children. It teaches they are something shameful & wrong.
