Brad Pitt has expressed horror at news that his daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, is to begin the process of a sex change with Angelina Jolie’s blessing.
Shiloh began hormone treatment on May 11th, shortly after starting puberty.
Hln.be reports: When she was two, Shiloh – Brad and Angelina’s oldest biological child – still appeared in public wearing cute pink dresses.
As a toddler, the child made it clear that she wanted to go through life as a boy. And Angelina Jolie supported that decision: Angelina spoke openly in interviews, allowing Shiloh to choose how she would dress. Even when their daughter demanded that she be called John or Peter, Angelina obliged. “She can then choose which gender she wants to identify herself later,” she said at the time.
Since 2009, Shiloh has been wearing masculine clothes, but her body always remained female. Not such a big problem for a young child, But now puberty has begun, Shiloh has to make a choice: Let the body go through its natural hormonal changes, making it harder to transition in the future, or start hormone therapy now to become a man sooner.
No easy decision for a child of almost eleven, but Angelina support their daughter in her identity. Shiloh really wants to go through life as a man, and so Angelina consulted with a specialist after her birthday. Several media outlets report that a hormone treatment has now been initiated under the guidance of the Younique Surgery Center in Santa Monica. It must ensure that Shiloh’s body does not become more feminine than it already is, and prevents major surgery at a later age, such as breast stimulation.
However, Angelina’s decision to allow Shiloh to choose her own sex has been met with controversy. Apparently, Brad’s parents are absolutely unaware of their grandchild’s gender change. They see the transgender process as something unnatural and fiercely oppose the decision.
