John Jolie-Pitt

John Jolie-PittI debated a lot about what I wanted to say in this post. What I wanted it to be about and how I was going to say it. Today, I’m going to talk about John Jolie-Pitt. Now, I’d just like to say that everything I’ve heard about Angelina and brad’s son comes from news stories, magazines, and the internet.

It was reported a few weeks ago that one of Brad and Angelina’s children no longer identified as female and requested to be called John, something it is said that Angelina and Brad support. Since the news broke, it is said that Brad and Angelina have been attacked by Anti-LGBT organizations for their decision to support their child.

The news that he now identifies as John received a lot of backlash. Some people said this identity had been forced on him. They said that years of being put in “boys clothes” had confused him. That growing up with older brothers would make him want to explore being a boy.

There are a few things that need to be addressed here. First, John is not confused. Whether this is a phase or not, this is who he is now and it is no one’s business except his. Only John knows who he really is. He is not confused nor is he too young to know who he is. If Brad and Angelina’s daughter, Zahara, had stepped forward and said she was a girl, she would be told she’s right. It’s been shown in various studies that children begin to explore and understand their bodies and the differences between ‘male’ and ‘female’ by the time they’re three or four.

Second, the fact that Brad and Angelina support their child is something people should be happy about. Attacking them for supporting their child is basically attacking them for being loving parents. John is very lucky to have supporting parents and Angelina and Brad are a great example of how things should be.

Third, trying to blame John’s identity on the fact that he wears “boys clothes” is, simply put, ridiculous. Why? They’re not “boys clothes”, they’re clothes. You don’t put a pair of pants and a shirt that came out of the “boys section” and automatically turn into a male. You wear clothes you like, it has nothing to do with gender, sex, sexuality, or anything.

Whatever happens in the future, I’m glad John has the support of his family and so many others now. that support will go a long way with the hate this boy will unfortunately face.

What do you think of the media attacking this family?
