In another one of those signs that we’re standing at the edge of the final collapse, People.com is celebrating a 6-year-old transgender girl with a new web series. The girl – Devina Keswani – used to be a boy named Dev. But since she had the misfortune of being born to parents with the combined intellect of a fruit fly, she has since “transitioned” into her female form. At the age of six.
The series follows her family as they usher their child into one of the worst lives imaginable. Seriously. The Keswanis have been watching the news, right? They’ve seen the studies that say transgenders are at extraordinarily high risk of being bullied? That they lead sad lives. That they commit suicide at high rates? What kind of parents would want that life for their child? This is just sick. We take children away from parents who let them play at the park without adult supervision, but we let this family breed mental illness.
“The day Dev could walk, the walk was feminine. The day Dev could talk, it was really feminine,” said Devina’s mom, Vaishali in one episode of the series.
So what do you do when confronted with this peculiar behavior? Do you try to discourage it? No, of course not. You let them become a girl. And if your kid shows signs of being into killing helpless animals, you should definitely encourage that as well. The point of life is to live as your authentic self, right? Sure. There’s no right or wrong. Just do whatever you want. What a great philosophy. It will surely help this country achieve great things well into the future.
“Family support is the number one way to ensure that your child will have a happy and healthy transition,” says Devina’s 15-year-old transgender friend, Lily Rubenstein. “The Keswanis are setting the example here. Because of their support, Devina has been able to live a happy and authentic life. There is nothing better than being able to do that.”
What kind of a fantasy world do these people live in where they think this poor child is going to live a happy life? Because unless something shifts dramatically over the next ten years, it’s not going to be easy for her. She’s going to be at the fringe of society. This is a fact. For every Caitlyn Jenner, there are hundreds of transgender boys and girls who are thoroughly miserable.
Because these people are living lives of absolute absurdity. There’s no happiness there. And look, you should be free to do whatever you like as long as it’s not harming anyone. If the kid on this show grew up and decided he wanted to live his life as a woman, go for it. No one’s going to stop you. But for a family to push this on a child who doesn’t have a concept of what they’re buying into. It’s sickening.
But what’s more sickening is this attempt to make it mainstream. To encourage other parents to follow in the Keswanis footsteps, and to make it seem like it’s somehow inhumane to do otherwise. That’s really sick, and it’s going to cause so many people to live lives of unending misery.
