WOW. I have to say I find this kinda disturbing. I don’t really pretend to understand the term “identity politics” because it seems to be another one of those terms designed exactly for the purpose of distorting and confusing a multitude of issues. But identity, is a huge part of a person’s life whether they decide to recognize it or not. Encouraging people to deny any part of their personality is destructive, I think. So to advise your child to deny a part of their identity…I don’t know.
