It was back in 2018 when we started seeing adoring stories about young drag queens. Drag queen “Lactatia” was only 8 years old when ELLE ran a piece celebrating the boy and his refusal to “let other people stop him from doing what makes him feel accepted.” And then there was 11-year-old drag queen Desmond Napoles, aka “Desmond is Amazing,” who was paraded in front of the country on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The media seemed to love these kids and their publicity-hungry moms who encouraged them, but viewers called it child abuse.

On Thursday, in honor of International Transgender Day of Visibility, ABC News featured a mother whose child indicated they were trans as soon as they had the words to express it. And that’s why we need to have teacher-led discussions of gender identity in kindergarten.

At least she knows that President Biden has her daughter’s back.
