I’m assuming they’ve done this for publicity and not the tiny few who gender bend.

that seems like a reasonable assumption. appealing to the 'woker-than-thou' crowd.

Have you considered that NONE of it is real, and it may just be a marketing gimmick?

So, his parents are the "sick af" ones, I assume?


As an aside, No Doubt doesn't have a song called "Like A Girl" - from the article in the first post of that thread.

Cute kid.

Looks like his OCD went to drag.

When people with Autism display OCD towards math they become early mathematicians, science, scientists, this kids on drag, so he'll be an early drag queen. It's common in the Autistic community for kids to narrow their focus on one subject.
His parents might as well support him because changing him will be impossible. At least they'll form a bond.

As far as acceptance, the general public might as well embrace it. 1 in 59 kids will be born with Autism this year. At this rate, everyone will be Autistic soon, and it will be our new "normal."
