    Hey people ragging on her wig; do you know how much full lace fronts cost? A lot of trans people at the beginning of their transition can’t afford/can’t get access to them, you have no idea what is going on in her life. She’s living her truth, let’s be proud of her for that and stop picking her apart, yeah?

    Why change the law though? It's clearly a mental health issue, so therapy can only help. It certainly can't hinder.

    To the laughing and angry faces on here. I wish you more love, compassion and understanding on your fellow person regardless of trans status or gender or sexuality.

    Great to see. But surely as a member of the Bundestag given the salary she can buy a better wig. Or is it from the Donald J Trump collection?

    I'm really glad for her 😊😊 but I think since she's in her early transitioning stage cause she reminds me of Jean Claude Van Dam. However when she finishes transitioning I think she'll look absolutely gorgeous ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Trans gender then trans age trans age, legitimate paedophilia. That’s where this leads! How can someone be so self righteous that they think nature can make a mistake? 😂 metal health needs treating not encouraging. Sorry I don’t hate anyone but these people need help they don’t need everyone else to live in their mystical fairy world.
