(NOT THE BEE) – An Australian mom has gone viral for saying she's proud of her "transgender son" (AKA her biological daughter) going through "menopause" because of all the meds being given to resist the double X chromosome that's coded in every one of her child's cells.
Although the mom's post was published back in April, it began gathering international attention over the weekend and got picked up by media outlets when someone shared a screenshot of the article.
Here's what the Brisbane mother had to say in her writeup: "My 15-year-old son started feeling nauseous and 'a bit off' a couple of weeks ago. He skipped dinner and headed to bed early, but the next morning he still wasn't himself. The nausea had lifted but it was replaced with sweats and hot flashes. It couldn't have been something he ate because we'd all been eating the same food, and it would be bizarre if he'd caught anything because my house has been on a pretty strict lockdown for weeks, due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was when we started googling the symptoms that the penny dropped: my son was going through menopause."
