That was what you said, a fascinating article. And a positive one.
I do have a concern, though, but here's a quote first:
Jonas and Wyatt Maines were born identical twins, but from the start each had a distinct personality.
Jonas was all boy. He loved Spiderman, action figures, pirates, and swords. Wyatt favored pink tutus
and beads. At 4, he insisted on a Barbie birthday cake and had a thing for mermaids. On Halloween,
Jonas was Buzz Lightyear. Wyatt wanted to be a princess; his mother compromised on a prince costume.
This is the first lines of the article and when I read it, as a gay person, I always cringe when
they write something llike "Jonas was all boy" because he liked Spiderman, action figures, etc.
because I know gay guys who are exactly like that and this seems to imply that the other male
who liked pink tutus and Barbie was either going to be gay (which is mentioned in another area
of the article) or transgender which happens to be the case, when the possibility also could be
that Jonas turned out gay and Wyatt was a straight boy who happened to like more feminine things.
I know gay guys that you could describe as Jonas. I am a gay guy who happened to like more
feminine things growing up--I liked dolls (fortunately G.I. Joe came out when I was of age and
so I could play with that one)! To me he "was" out, but hey. I liked playing with dishes and
cooking and cheerleading and stuff like that. But I never thought I was a girl.
I know why they write those kinds of things...so readers not used to any of this to see how it
could happen and you don't want to get sidetracked with other issues in an article, but I'd
suggest leaving out, say, the "all boy" part and just say something like "Jonas was interested in
the typical things most boys are" or something like that.
Maybe Justin Bieber could play both roles in a movie!
