For National #ComingOutDay, a #thread on trans children coming out as a follow-up to #transphobic comments after Jacob asked @ewarren how she would protect trans kids in the #EqualityTownHall. I've seen an appalling number of harmful myths in less than 24 hours. Let's bust 'em!

This is also true in my personal experience running peer-support groups with parents of trans & NB children and middle- and high school-aged trans & NB youth. While many kids come out during puberty or after, a growing number of children are coming out at young ages and PERSIST.
