Kansas City Teaching Moment: Internets Celebrates Mother Of Transgender Child Country Club Plaza Unity Temple Speech
Recent Kansas City testimony has sparked celebration as a mother explains her support for the decision of her transgender child.
Take a look:
Youtube KCMO Country Club Plaza Speech: "Debi shares the story of her daughter, who transitioned from male to female when she was four years old. She challenges the ignorant comments she hears."
Huff Post: "And so begins the absolutely beautiful speech Debi Jackson gave earlier this year about her transgender daughter, AJ, at the Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City. As Jackson continues, she outlines how her family came to realize that AJ is transgender, what happened the first day she went to school "in girl clothes" and the bigotry her family faced.
But the best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she's heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you "wanted a girl so you turned your child into one" and "kids have no idea what they want or who they are -- my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?"
Pink news: We’re liberals pushing a gay agenda… nope, sorry, I’m a conservative Southern Baptist Republicans from Alabama.
