All I can say and hope to keep this short enough.. I'm soo happy for Danann!! I wish that I could be in her shoes when I was 8. I grew up in the 70's and 80's. I knew who I was inside, but also knew I had to keep it inside!! I still do today. Just wish I could find a woman to appreciate my dual spirit.. Like Allison mentioned.
These children need support. Although I'm sure they will get by on their own. I did. You can see in the interview that Danann is a bit shy, but confident in who she is. I knew when I was about 4 years old. She answers the questions directly and firmly. This is not a child that was abused. Thankfully for TV, maybe she seen boys in womens clothes on Nick and decided to express herself.
Funny that Modanna sang that 30 years ago. I would never support surgery when the child is under 18. Maybe hormones before puberty is a good idea. Living life with certain hormones most of your life then changing them may be worse. I don't want kids to be used as lab rats, but I would have done it if people were as understanding as they are now.
The other thing that most people do not understad is who you are inside does not determine who you are attracted to. I am woman on the inside, but I'm attracted to women. I was never abused or molested. I just always knew this is who I am, just like Danann knows.
I hope Danann gets the love and support that she deserves from her family and her future friends!!!!
