Transgender model and activist Munroe Bergdorf has spoken out against transphobic media coverage. Speaking to BuzzFeed, she swore to be responsible and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. “I’ve got 12-year-old transgender kids messaging me saying: ‘Can I talk to you? My parents are trying to stop me from transitioning’,” she shared, underlining that the biggest thing parents can do for their children is being attentive and supportive, listening to them, no matter whether they are trans or cis. When it came to how parents treat their trans children, Bergdorf said that media are to blame for forming a negative attitude of the parents to their own kids. “Trans kids aren’t kids forever – they turn into transgender adults, and I just think how this is going to be screwing up the future adults of tomorrow, stopping them from succeeding and becoming the best humans they can be,” she insists.
