Jesse Sullivan, a popular TikTok star who is transgender, has responded to the criticism of kids transitioning by KISS singer Paul Stanley. Stanley’s comments stirred up controversy when he claimed that kids are being encouraged to transition at a young age.
Transitioning is Not a Fad
According to Jesse, anyone who is considering transitioning is doing so because they know deep down who they truly are. Jesse says that transitioning is not a fad and that the process is anything but fun. During the transition, individuals may lose family members, and the process is hard on both the body and mind, not to mention the social changes that come with it.
The Need for Real Support for Trans Kids
Jesse acknowledges that the issue of kids transitioning is a hot-button topic, but he believes that trans kids need real support. He explains that there is a lot for them to fear in this climate, and they need all the help they can get.
Jesse and Francesca Farago also shared their thoughts on Dwyane Wade’s decision to move his family out of Florida due to the state’s LGBTQ policies. They even skipped an event in Florida for the same reasons.
Jesse has high praise for Dwyane’s 15-year-old daughter Zaya, who came out as transgender in 2020. Jesse believes that supporting trans kids is crucial, and they should be allowed to live their lives authentically without fear.
