Annotation

"My Mommy Is A Boy" is a short story of a little girl who is explaining to the reader why her female-to-male transgendered mommy looks like a boy. She explains the gender transition process in simple terms easy for a child to understand. The message she portrays is simply, that, no matter what her mommy looks like on the outside or how people perceive her family, her mommy loves her unconditionally.
