Here’s an interesting sociological take on the Candid Camera TV set-up: hire two actors to play a mom and son who are having an emotional discussion about the son wanting to be a girl. Set the scene in the middle of a crowded New Jersey diner, and see what the other people in the restaurant say.
As a gay person with a vested interest in making sure our LGBT youth are happy, I’d probably step in and defend the son. But if I were straight, or older, perhaps I’d let them settle the matter on their own. What would you do?
