Zoe Lynn is the mom that won the hearts of the internet this month.
The young mom recently shared photos of her heartwarming gesture of acceptance and love for her child on Facebook, and hundreds of people shared that she filled their hearts. Lynn threw an adorable gender reveal party for her 6-year-old daughter that came out as trans. The proud mother detailed all the emotions and internal struggles that went through to get to this point in a powerful post, and even though the journey had its ups and downs, the mom highlighted that the only thing that matters is that her daughter knows that she is loved no matter what!
The mom-of-two admitted that she had fallen short on understanding the journey of different groups of people in the past, but she tried to educate herself about the LGBTQ+ community and the struggles they’ve faced over the years, and she now believes that she’s open-minded.
We’ve featured this issue in the past, but what many people don’t realize is that gender reveal parties are somewhat dumb and can also be dangerous. Why? Because you can’t know your child’s gender, so what you reveal is if your child’s anatomy. Sounds dumb when you put it that way, right?
In fact, even the ‘creator’ of the gender reveal parties wrote back in 2019 that the idea is dumb, because assigning focus on gender at birth leaves out so much of the child’s potential and talents that have nothing to do with what’s between their legs.
As Lynn puts it herself in her post:
“Your choices, as always, are to be KIND, be QUIET and educate yourself or to LEAVE. Thank you in advance.”
