What passes for "news media" these days is just a strange, sad thing. It is what it is, ain't what it ain't.

Watch out people will start accusing you of victim blaming. Except it wont fit their agenda in this case.

It's actually given some insight, according to some posters here. Tabloidism or not.

Can u explain transitioning niece?

Is the person still your nephew and become a woman or actually your niece and going through this process?

It gets confusing because sometimes people are still hes and when do they technically become shes?

It can become confusing for people who are not involved.
