    Her Own Person? Reality cannot be redefined. Reality has always been what is biological and not what is sociological. Gender is biological. Identity is sociological. An evil mechanism used by child-mutilating tribes to exploit children, who are objectified with shame to force them into creepy role-playing games. She isn’t her own person and she never has been. She’s wearing her mother’s clothes of shame. She’s the victim of her mother’s misogyny, misandry, emotional neglect and abuse. She’s still her mother’s BOY.
