Remember Kim Petras, the German teen who is believed to be the youngest person in the world to ever undergo GRS?
Boy, how time flies. Three years ago the controversy was raging all over the world whether Kim, much less any transkid was too young to transition at age 12. We had a rather spirited debate about it on TSTB, and it led me to compose a post about the issue of teen transition and my thoughts on it.
Just an FYI, I'm in favor of doing it in your teens.
Kim is now a stunning looking 16 year old. After enduring years of taunts from fellow classmates she shook it off and focused on her music, which became cult hits on MySpace and You Tube.
The cult hit status has paid dividends for Kim and led to her recently being signed by a German company to a recording contract. She's now focused on her budding music career and achieving pop star status, not her unique path to womanhood.
"My music is most important to me at the moment. It's the way I can best express myself."
"I know that because of my past people will always bring up the subject, I can't get away from it. But I hope that one day I might be better known for my music than for my past."
As Kim prepares to release her first CD, it's what her sisters and brothers all over the world wish for her as well.
