😢 io Tillet Wright. - This woman was a boy for 8 years.
@iolovesyou decided at the age of 6 that she wanted to be a boy, after some boys at her school had denied her the chance to play basketball with them. For 8 years @iolovesyou went to school and lived her life as a boy. (Her parents obviously knew that she she as a girl, but the beauty of having open-minded parents that let you be, they let her do her). io Tillet was also a childhood actress, so she was a girl that was pretending to be a boy whilst pretending to be other people (the characters she played) . I AM TRYING TO IMAGINE THE AMOUNT OF FUN AND STRESS ALL IN THIS ! Anyways. After the 8 years of pretending, she decided she now wanted to be a girl again. Please keep in mind that when she was a boy she didn't hate her body nor her genitalia - she just wanted to perform the gender of being a boy. Upon her return to being a girl , she fell in love with her first love - a girl. Her parents bartered no eye lash. 3 years later she revealed she was in love with a boy. Still her parents battered no eye lash. She went from being a girl, to being a boy, to being a girl who loves a girl, to being a girl who loves a boy, and she still continues to grow and decide who and what she wants to be every day.
She decides for herself.
I love this. She can decide today that she's a tom boy who loves wearing lacy lingerie and she can change tomorrow and decide she's a girly girl who loves the bruises on her knees, that she gets from skating.
ALL IM SAYING IS THAT :
We've got too few boxes out here.. 😣
