Interesting Discourse on The View  

Interesting clip of Walters and the Women of the View discussing gender roles, transgendered identities and the discourse surrounding childhood. Thoughts?

Did anyone see the piece of transgendered children?

I saw the show on transsexual children. It was on 20/20 a few months ago. It was tragic--kids were being told that only girls wore dresses, only girls used pink cups, and so forth. it was painfully clear to me that at least some of these boys wanted to be girls because they were told that their interests, desired clothing, hobbies, and so on were only things the opposite sex did. e.g. child: "i want the pink cup." mom: "only girls get pink." "but i like pink." "but only girls like pink." "then i'm a girl."

And that Sherri is so damn ignorant. She's ridiculous. But kudoes to Whoopi, Joy, and Melina.
