Keep in mind that Babe is not only an endearing name to call someone, but it’s also the name of a famous actor pig from a movie. Did you know that Babe the pig was raised by sheepdogs?
Even though her only daughter is seeking to have a complete sex change by transitioning from a female to a male, Cher says she supports Chaz, and will always love her no matter what:
“Chaz is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support,” Cher tells Usmagazine.com in a statement. “I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny, and although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding. The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my child.”
The first 30 times I read that I cried like a baby. You see, something similar happened to me a few years back, something that changed my life and the life of my youngest legitimate child forever…
When my boy, let’s just call him *What’s his face, or WHF* came to me 8 years ago and said that he wanted to transition from a beautiful little boy into a kangaroo, I was, to put it mildly, shocked. I’ve only heard of things like this, I’ve only met two, maybe three people who have children that are now kangaroos. But after a while when the news sank in, and knowing the prejudice that marsupial-Canadians face every day, I decided that I would stand behind WHF 100%.
I said, “Kanga, although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding.” That’s what us progressives do, we never question or judge someone or something, we just accept, love and then love some more.
It was hard at first, watching my beautiful son slowly morph into a kangaroo. I always had to keep my good eye on him when he was near Australians, as they always tried to shoot him or skin him for a pelt. But after a while, my acceptance grew, and now I can say with certainty that Kanga made the right decision, he was meant to be a marsupial.
Plus having that extra pouch around really comes in handy when we go camping. That’s kind of a bonus I guess you could say.
