Critics are accusing Charlize Theron of abusing her kids after learning that the actress is raising her son, Jackson, to be a girl. Read on to get the details!
I feel bad for you if you can't tell the difference between make believe & reality. Saying your kid wants to be Batman & the other wants to be a frog is no where the same. You are the bigot & you know it & are proud of it

The scrutiny surrounding Charlize’s parenting practices reached an all-time high when the celebrity mom confirmed that she was indeed rearing Jackson as a girl. “I thought she was a boy, too,” Theron said during a recent interview. The celebrity mom revealed that Jackson looked her in the face at 3-years-old and declared that he was actually a girl.
“she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy,'” Charlize said. “I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any other parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive. They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.”
Can kids even think of things like that plus form proper sentences at Three? Asking for a friend…..

It may not be for Charlize Theron to determine the individuality of her kids as they grow older, but fans say that the celebrity mom is taking the comments of a toddler too far by raising her son as a girl simply because of what he said at just 3-years-old.
“This liberal era of accepting (sic) of all individuals for who they are we’re in is great but this Charlize Theron situation of letting your 3yr old kid decide what he/she wants to be identified as is an example of when it goes overboard,” one social media critic tweeted.
Another wrote, “Hope authorities take your kid away for child abuse. Irresponsible parenting and should not have a kid. You have ruined his life due to your snowflake ridiculous logic.”
Charlize Theron alluded to the government in South Africa declining her petition to adopt a child during an interview earlier this year. “I wish,” Charlize said of false statements claiming that Theron adopted her kids from South Africa. “They wouldn’t give me a baby,” the actress said.
I'm against "parents" that decide the gender of their kids because it's the "in" thing to do and they can't get enough attention.
For you to think this is not happening is to be completely naive.
It's child abuse in the worst degree.

Some applaud the South African government for taking such a stance and are beginning to wonder why the department of child protective services (DCPS) in Los Angeles does not investigate Charlize for child abuse. “Charlize Theron is an unfit mother… who used her privilege to adopt and ruin black kids all for WOKE cred,” one social media critic said. Another wrote, “That boy has the hands of a football player. She literally made that boy into a girl. #AGENDA.”
BCK Asks: Do you think that 3-years-old is too young for a child to determine gender identity? Is Charlize Theron abusing Jackson?
