This brave video has been making the rounds. Meet Debi Jackson, a “conservative, Southern Baptist Republican from Alabama,” who speaks of her experience of coming to terms with her 6-year-old child’s gender identity. Her child was born a biological male and insisted on being recognized as a girl for most of her young life. And she’s okay with that. She wants you to be, too.

“My daughter is a girl in her heart. She knows it. God knows it. And that’s good enough for me.”
