Between her apparently dazzling appearance at the Golden Globes and the Oscar buzz surrounding her film Bombshell, which deals with the culture of sexual harassment at FOX News, Charlize Theron appears to be having something of a moment. That, and her decision to raise her son Jackson as a girl after he declared, at age three, that he was “not a boy” has made her quite a hit with the LGBT movement.
As I noted last year, Theron’s decision isn’t just yet another case of hedonistic Hollywood’s devotion to the sexual fringe. With her very public endorsement of the idea that a child can choose his or her own gender from a very early age and the accompanying chronicle of her adopted child’s life with Theron being played out in the press, Theron—like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—can make far more of an impact in her support of this dangerous new ideology.
