[Ed. – Lucky the child didn’t say he was a corpse at age or she might have buried him. In the meantime, maybe it’s time for the agency that arranged the child’s adoption to revisit its decision.]
Charlize Theron revealed that her 7-year-old child Jackson is transgender.
“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,” Theron told The Daily Mail, “Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’”
“So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive,” the “Long Shot” star shared. “They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.”
Theron dressed Jackson in female clothes from there on out, embracing her child for who she is.
“My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be,” she continued, “and I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.”
The Oscar-winning actress, 43, credited her mother for raising her in a way to believe that everyone should live their truths.
