A short time ago, “transgender kids” was a phrase that marked you as one of those hysterical social conservatives who, when proven right, subsequently got called bigoted for pointing that out. Trans kids are so trendy these days that the hapless Elizabeth Warren promised she’d have one approve her Education Secretary, and President Joe Biden torched female athletics with a radical executive order that should jolt any of those gullible innocents who were sure he’d be a “moderate Democrat,” a long-extinct species hunted to death by zealous progressives.
Trans kids, of course, need accessories, since they weren’t born with the ones that fit the gender as which they wish to present. A cottage industry to service this need has popped up, with “packers” for girls who identify as boys to put in their underwear to mimic a penis (the sophisticated ones are advertised as capable of permitting gender dysphoric girls to pee standing up just like a real boy); binders, which girls can use to flatten their breasts and present as male prior to obtaining double mastectomies; and a wide range of carefully tailored apparel.
