A television interview with a transgender youth took an interesting turn when the camera panned out to show their mother sitting beside them. As the interviewer asked the child a question about competing in sports, the mother appeared to mouth each word the child was saying… in unison. It was like the mother had coached the child on how to answer specific questions before the interview. The child identifies as a girl but was born a biological male.
For context, the lower third on-screen during this interview referenced Title IX. This is legislation that gives women more room to participate in organized sports. There is controversy over biological males invading biological women’s spaces in sports by claiming to be transgender. This interview appeared to be nothing more than a mother attempting to gain political clout by using their child as a pawn in the game.
