he face of a young man in a baseball cap fills the screen at the center of a circle of 30 or so children. "It's Johnny!" they yell, meaning Johnny Weir, the "flamboyant," figure-skating Olympian.* The kids are part of an annual gathering of gender-variant and transgender kidskids born boys who look and act like girls. Outside of this camp weekend, it's rare for them to hear "how great I think you all are
being true to yourselves," as Weir tells them. He says he loves the electric-blue spandex suit with the lime-green lightning bolt designed by one boy. He tells a 6-year-old that, no, he doesn't have a girlfriend, but one day he would like to have a family of his own. And, yes, "Bad Romance" was his favorite song to skate to. "I've fallen," he tells them, referring to the ice, not sin. "I've screwed up. The thing is just sparkle so much that nobody notices. Yeah, that's it. Sparkle! We've got to sparkle!"

The end of civilization as we know it.
Child abuse. Evil.
What on earth are those IDIOT parents thinking?
Come to think of it, this thread title needs a PROJECTILE VOMIT warning
Even the six year old, despite being propagandized, knows that it takes a man and a woman to make a family.
That is almost as sad as the nudist camps for kids where no parents are allowed to keep the 18 year old boys and 13 year old girls apart.
Stuff that defeatist attitude and start fighting back! It's not the end of anything unless we give up. It's time to start speaking up, and speaking out, dammit. If we pi** people off, who cares?
We can either talk now to get our Republic back, or we can literally fight later. But if we're going to try to talk our way back to freedom, we'd better do it fast, 'cause "later" is getting sooner and sooner.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
These parents are guilty of child abuse and they belong in jail and the kids belong in foster homes.
Thank you klintoon, ossama, and dimocraps for dumbing down our country to the point where idiots think this crap is normal. I hope you all fry in hell!!!!!
Wow, that is just wrong.
The fact that a 6-yr-old is even thinking about girlfriends raises red flags all over the place with me. What a screwed-up home life he must have. It’s much too early for hormones to kick in, someone is pushing this behavior onto him. Odds are he has been or soon will be abused...
I would think it is a safe bet that most of the children will grow up hating their parents for letting them get stigmatized by something they didn't understand.
I think most of these kids were just kids who liked to put on Mommy or Daddy’s shoes and their over drama craving parents decided they were “transgendered”. It’s one thing when they are 17 and saying they don’t feel the same it’s quiet another when they are 6!
From reading the comments, it seems like society has gone amok. Girls who do not like dolls or have no interest in makeup go in one section. And boys who play make believe go into another section. It almost seems that the parents have put these kids into a transgender designation without benefit of professional consultation.
My goodness, kids play pretend all the time. It means nothing until the hormones kick in. Some parents need an intervention.
It doesn't for me. It is pretty common for kids to know about these things in a general manner. Or did you never chant:
"(boy name) and (girl name) sitting in a tree
First comes Love
Then comes Marriage
Then comes (either name) with a baby carriage!"
. What a screwed-up home life he must have. Its much too early for hormones to kick in, someone is pushing this behavior onto him. Odds are he has been or soon will be abused...
Now there I agree with you but not because of the boyfriend/girlfriend thing.
Actually, I was being more sarcastic. But I agree with your point, 100%.
