"'I identify as a trans man, a faggy queen...': Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's son Stephen speaks about being transgender"
This was a video made for a transgender support website. It's made by someone who is confident enough to talk about their identity and the journey there. As such, it contains a lot of things (terms, behaviours, ways of thinking) that trans people would be able to relate to, but not the general public at large. Nor the Mail, who complain:
Nowhere in the six-and-a-half-minute video is there mention of his famous parents.
Support video for trans people meets an audience it was never intended for. And so...
It's official, the world has gone nuts.

Okay, so she/he is a girl who wants to be a man that identifies with being a girl. How convoluted is that? And we as a culture are supposed to high five that? I long for simpler days...

WHY does he/she have to annouce all his personal business, I just don't get it. Have no desire to read this, have no idea why anyone would want to, why would anyone care? It's poor parents. From just the title, this kid is really messed up. Red arrow all you want, it's true.

Sorry Kathryn, you are still a woman and will always be no matter how you look on the outside. Accept yourself and move on.

And what is
a girl, Rob?
And so many other things that make me want to throw my face at the screen. Yes, his gender identity is somewhat more complicated than many people, but is that really an excuse for such crap?
