Janet Mock: ‘I’d never seen a young trans woman who was thriving in the world – I was looking for that’
The Guardian, April 15, 2018
…’she’ grew up impoverished in Honolulu. ‘Her’ father, Charlie, is African-American and was a drug addict (she had no idea and was devastated to discover when she was young that neighbours knew him as “Charlie the crackhead”). ‘Her’ mother, Elizabeth, is Hawaiian. The family was broken and dysfunctional…. As a seven-year-old, Mock went to live with ‘her’ father in Oakwood, California. ‘Her’ father called young Charles a sissy. Mock says ‘she’ was called all sorts when ‘she’ was growing up – freak, faggot, tranny, the N-word.
‘She’ did not see ‘her’ mother for five years until, at the age of 12, ‘she’ returned to Honolulu, where ‘she’ flourished. ‘Her’ mother never discouraged ‘her’ from becoming Janet (a name ‘she’ chose after a friend told her ‘she’ looked like Janet Jackson). “There were bigger issues in our family. My mom didn’t have the luxury of time and resources to micromanage (Wow.) any of ‘her’ children’s lives.” It was a blessing, ‘she’ says – wealthier parents might have paid for therapy to “right” ‘her’….
(Gays have now made that illegal.)
At 15, ‘she’ began hormone treatment without telling ‘her’ mother. Soon after, ‘she’ started selling sex and stripping (Which club? Lets shut it down.) to pay for ‘her’ $7,000 surgery. The only thing ‘she’ regrets, ‘she’ says, is doing a porn shoot to earn the final $1,500. “The sex work was private, but this was on record for the rest of my life.”….
(Every single one of Mock’s customers from age 15-18 is a homosexual child molester. Who will demand that ‘Janet’ Mock name them? ‘Her’ identity begins with shielding homosexual child molesters from the police in late 1990s Honolulu.)
One moment we are in Hawaii and ‘she’ is living…as a little boy called Charles. The next 'she' is 10 years old (being abused for 2 years by the crackhead in Oakwood, CA) and has created the alter ego Keisha to enable ‘her' to talk to boys on the phone….Now ‘she’ is 16, doing sex work and stripping at a local club to earn enough money to pay for ‘her’ operation – or bottom surgery, as ‘she’ calls it….
