In a shocking development, far-left Hollywood star Rosie O’Donnell told her daughter that she can be a girl and still “like all the boy stuff.”
Many conservatives applauded O’Donnell’s perspective as many leftists around the country are “transitioning” their young children.
The comment came during a chat about gender identity.
O’Donnell’s daughter initially said her stuffed animals are “non-binary” because they identify as neither a girl nor a boy.
“I’m like, here we go. Here we go!” O’Donnell said.

“I said, well that’s fantastic,” she told her daughter. “You know what’s funny is that I’m a girl who people used to call a tomboy because I liked all the boy stuff when I was little.”
“And you know what’s weird? I still do really like the boy stuff. I like football, I like riding a motorcycle. I like to do a lot of stuff that boys traditionally like to do.”
O’Donnell continued, “But you know what else? Never was confused about thinking if I was a boy or a girl. Always knew I was a girl and loved being a girl. So you can be a girl and feel any way you want or you can figure out what it is.”
“I’m like rambling and rambling and she said, ‘Are you done?’” O’Donnell said.
O’Donnell, a two-time married lesbian, has been a foster and adoptive mother to five children since 1995, with her youngest daughter being nine years old. She’s also a grandmother.
As a liberal Democrat, she has contributed thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates, some of which exceeded the legal limit in 2018.
O’Donnell has had a successful career in comedy and television, famously feuding with Donald Trump for years.
Critics of gender ideology express concern that girls who would have previously been considered “tomboys” are now being assumed to be transgender.
These girls are allegedly being directed towards puberty blockers at 10 or 11 years old, cross-sex hormones as teenagers, and ultimately genital and chest surgeries.
