i knew a ton of tomboys growing up.
they would dress like dudes and be more aggressive than the rest.
everyone thought they would turn into lesbians.
many of them were straight.
some have outgrown that phase and are completely feminine now.
it feels like a tomboy doesn’t exist anymore.
it skips go and heads right to trans.
angelina jolie’s daughter,
once thought she was trans male named john.
it seems like that has since changed for her…
Shiloh was Angelina and Brad’s first biological child and she was born in 2006. She was only a child when it was revealed that she thought she was a boy and requested to be called by a boy’s name. In 2008, Brad Pitt told Oprah Winfrey that Shiloh “only wants to be called John.” Or Peter. He attributed it to “a Peter Pan thing,” saying that every time someone tried to call her Shiloh, she corrected them, “John. I’m John.”
But in 2021, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, then 15, attended the Eternals premiere with her mom and she showed up wearing a brown, uneven hemmed dress with flats. She had her long hair pulled back—and she very clearly looked like a girl. There were a few other premieres during that time period that Shiloh attended, and at each of them she wore a dress and light makeup. It prompted many people to ask whether her thoughts of being a boy were a thing of the past.

Children have quite the imagination when they’re young, leaving them to think they’re a mermaid, a superhero, or even a different gender. But in pretty much every case, the kid grows out of this phase—and that seems to be exactly what Shiloh has done.
This is a development that nobody in the mainstream media wants to acknowledge. The press was all too quick to point out that Shiloh was dressing like a boy when she was young, but the fact that she looks and dresses like a normal girl is just proof that children will outgrow their “trans” phase if you simply allow them to.
Shiloh was given no hormone blockers or procedures to make her appear more like a boy. Even if her parents did allow her to dress like a boy when she was younger, they didn’t interfere with her natural growth process, and that’s why she ended up outgrowing her tomboy phase. She didn’t need to be called a boy’s name or have her breasts cut off as a teenager. She just needed to be a child, and many times children imagine wild things about themselves that they soon outgrow.
i’ve met males who were feminine as teenagers and outgrew that too.
many vixens are tomboys and it seems that is being erased.
it’s either one extreme to the next.
sometimes these new-aged parents are dead set on making it “a thing” too.
i’m glad shiloh was able to figure herself out naturally.
if she chooses to become a trans male in the future then so be it.
Her mother is Angelina Jolie for Christ’s sake.
i’m sure that rebellious spirit is in her blood.
