I never said there would be harm, I'm just curious.
It's a very unique phenomenon when a TODDLER seemingly self identifies with the opposite gender.

Just for a reference, and also you don't just wake up one day and decide to be GLBTQ+
Around two-years-old, children become conscious of the physical differences between boys and girls. Before their third birthday, most children are easily able to label themselves as either a boy or a girl. By age four, most children have a stable sense of their gender identity. During this same time of life, children learn gender role behavior—that is, doing "things that boys do" or "things that girls do."
If they identify with either as they grow and begin to question, guide them, make them aware, support them, ultimately it's their life.
