  1. This is a long thread, so lets get one thing clear up-front: The author-and-mother says her "daughter" has directly told her that he is a boy. That isn't mentioned in her first (and latest) NYT article, but instead comes out lower down in the thread from an older Parenting.com article.
  2. So we will start with that fact in mind: this child is a boy because he says so. It is genuinely that simple.
  3. Part 1: "My Daughter Isn't Transgender"
  4. The NYT ran an "opinion" piece about a child whose mother insists is a "tomboy" despite everyone they know ("100%", according to the author) believing the child is a trans boy. The article contained a lot of transphobic red flags and dog-whistles, and I (and others) formed an initial cautionary reaction to it.
  5. All these tweets were written before the Parenting.com article revealed that the child is in fact a trans boy.
