Basketball great Dwayne Wade has made the headlines recently, thanks to his young son who now identifies as a girl. Dwayne’s son is going media viral with his decision to change his name and identity to that of a female. Of course, Dwayne accepts and encourages his son to follow through on his desire to change his sex. This is amazing stuff, and in this video, you will see just how strongly Dwayne feels about his decision to support his son…well…daughter.
Lately, there are a lot of parents who state that they support their children who are making the big switch to becoming the opposite sex. We aren’t talking about the children who are over the age of 19-years-old, here. We are talking about children who aren’t even teenagers yet. In situations like that, it can be a bit interesting, to say the least on how a child knows exactly what they want—especially when they have yet to experience life to understand who they are, as of yet. How can a young boy know who he is fully when he has yet to live a full life? Can a young child truly comprehend what it means to switch over their sexual identity when they don’t even understand what it means to be the sex that they currently are?
This is a topic that can create the greatest of debates, even though those debates might occur behind the scenes. The current temperature for expressing any disagreement with a child wanting to change their sex is very hot and can get someone burned if they dare say they disagree with it. The interesting thing is that Dwayne’s kid is all over the media expressing his desire to change his sex, yet when he reads any criticism about his decision, he immediately says he didn’t ask for anyone’s support on this. If this is so, then why announce it? Surely, he—along with his family—is looking for something in all of this. Otherwise, why make this very personal thing so public?
After you watch this short video of Dwayne sharing his family’s business, tell us what you think. Do you agree with a child having the ability to change their own sex at such a young age?
