Dwyane Wade Says His 12-Year-Old Identifies As Female, Goes By Zaya

Dwyane Wade just revealed his 12-year-old now identifies as female ... saying his child asked to call her Zaya.

Zaya . "Zion, born as a boy, came home and said, 'Hey, so, I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I'm ready to live my truth." Wade said on"The Ellen Show." "And, I want to be referenced as she and her. I would love for you guys to call me Zaya.'" Wade discussed his support for Zaya and the LGBTQ+ community in a powerful interview with Ellen DeGeneres ... saying he and Gabrielle couldn't be more proud of her. “We take our roles and responsibilities as parents very seriously. So, when our child comes home with a question ... it’s our job as parents to listen to that to give them the best information that we can, the best feedback that we can, and that doesn’t change now that sexuality [and gender] is involved.” Wade has been incredibly outspoken about his support for Zaya ... and clapped back at people criticizing her in a family photo back on Thanksgiving. "Stupidity is a part of this world we live in — so I get it. But, here's the thing — I've been chosen to lead my family, not y'all," Wade said at the time. "So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile!" In fact, Union and took Zaya to the Miami Pride parade back in 2019. Play video content FAMILY PRIDE Wade went on to explain, “I looked at her and said you are a leader ... It’s our opportunity to allow you to be a voice. Right now, it’s through us because she’s 12 years old, but eventually, it will be through her.” Read more: TMZ

GTFOH! Only in America I feel like kids are gender fluid. Being trans is a Hard life and lots of medical care. Make that decision when you’re older, after puberty. Also lots of therapy is needed. Many people change gender then regret it, resulting in suicide sometimes. What is wrong with people. Worry about your own families. You dont know how that kid feels or what is going in that house. No one should tell him how to be a parent

That’s a hard pill for him to swallow. And we care why? I think that lil dude just looking for attention from his mommy and daddy. Just like every transvestite out there That’s great good parent 2020: when celebrating mental illness is right and 'woke' Wow that sucks At 12 years old huh 🤔?

Dwyane Wade: How My Daughter Zaya, 12, Came Out as TransgenderDwyane Wade opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about his 12-year-old daughter, Zaya, coming out as transgender to him and Gabrielle Union — watch Please correct the article. Zaire is his son.

Well, now what? What a man,dad, human!! His beautiful wife too! love supportyourkids no matter what!!! Why is this national news? 😢 Admirable he's supportive, but begs a bigger question as to the state of our society when this is a topic of thought for a 12 year old. For the human animal, what percent of people would be transgender in the wild? 0.01%? What percent are transgender in the world today? In America? I don’t these numbers are commensurate.

I'm happy he's standing by his son

Dwyane Wade Opened Up About the Heartwarming Moment His Child Came Out as Zaya“I want to be referenced as she and her. I would love for you guys to call me Zaya.” This is parenting at its very best. The GOAT doing GOAT things

That's so awesome. I'm sure Dwayne always wanted his little boy to wear panties. Why is this news worthy. Absolutely none of our buisness Beautiful Children to changing Lord help You wanna be gay? Cool be gay. But switching genders or “identifying” as another gender is imo a mental issue. You cannot be something you’re not. It’s just that simple.

🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 I’m guessing he’ll want to dominate a girls sport soon too? When I was 12, I just wanted to be LilKim 🤷🏽‍♀️ If your popee get money a nkwasiasem sei aa. What’s the point of being on earth if your being someone your not ? That’s is exactly what your doing ima roll with gods plan

Dwyane Wade on How He and Gabrielle Union Handled Their Child Coming Out as TransgenderWade says Union reached out to the stars of Pose for guidance, to try to give their child “the best opportunity to be her best self” (via toofab) TooFab There are no transgender children. Only abusive adults that seek to confuse them about their gender. TooFab That’s what great parenting looks like 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 TooFab

Still doesnt change the fact the kid is a Male. You ppl are all sick if you agree with this. How is this ok? A 12 yr old who’s still learning how to wipe his own ass smh. Just remember not everyone feels the same. Maybe the boy or girl should keep those opions to him or herself. What works for you doesn’t work for everyone. You gonna get someone hurt smh

When I was 12 I focused on getting good grades and cleaning up after myself :D All good! When I was 2 I told my neighbors that I'd like them to address me as Dr.Lee! It's a feeling. I wanted to be identified as an asian doctor who lives in silicon valley LA! Obviously they told me to go FK MYSELF! So I did; Didn't like it. Thus I knew I liked girls. So.....

Instead of just giving him his space and seeing what happens let’s drag him on Ellen and scream it to the world! Bone head move What happend to letting kids being kids, damn just buy gender neutral clothes and stop pressuring them to identify as whatever. Child: daddy I think im gay Me: just go play and get away with me with this ...

At 12 all i wanted was hockey stick and goalie pads not maxi pads

Dwyane Wade On the Proud Moment His Daughter Come Out As TransgenderWhen Dwyane Wade's 12-year-old daughter came out as transgender, the retired athlete proudly told her, You are our leader and this is our opportunity to allow you to be a voice. Its so trendy now 🙄😂. Soon everyone will be a different gender, of the 478 of them there are to choose from 🙄🙄🤡🤡 YES!!! TransIsBeautiful Amazing examples as parents and their acceptance to support their child no matter what!

Dumb At 12 i was thinking video games and wrestling da fuk Does he know the child has a mental disorder? Get him to Africa and leave him for a year,I promise you he will turn to a man Da fuck ! StutteringGiant That boy hasn’t even reached puberty yet, and they’re out here saying you’re a good father, Wade. Smh 🤦🏾‍♂️

Smarten up Dwyane ! To all these people with all these stupid comments, what should Dwyane do, beat his child, he's being a loving parent, and not judging his child the way you all are, he's being a true father, and loving his child unconditionally. She's possessed by a demon, that's why she's the way she is. truth

Damn! The woke culture got him

Dwyane Wade Wants to Give His 12-Year-Old Child Zaya ‘the Best Opportunity to Be Her Best Self'Dwyane Wade recalled his 12-year-old saying, ''Hey, I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I'm ready to live my truth. I want to be referenced as she and her, I would love for you guys to call me Zaya'' Really, I thought most parents wanted less for their kids... enlightened That is what every parent wants. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

FN bummer The comments on here are utterly disgusting. 😖 I just came here for the comments. Y'all freaks. did. not. disappoint. Dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Your a boy. Straight up. Mind boggling.... 12 years old, wow God Bless Him. His kid is very fortunate. Can Zaya hoop? Love him

Dwyane Wade: How My Daughter Zaya, 12, Came Out as TransgenderDwyane Wade opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about his 12-year-old daughter, Zaya, coming out as transgender to him and Gabrielle Union — watch Please correct the article. Zaire is his son.

Damn. I bet hes disappointed. Good for Dwade and good for his daughter That’s a hard pill to swallow. When I was 12 I was gonna be a ninja turtle, congrats to him for following his dreams A damn shame 🤦‍♀️ & God bless her!! 🙏💗 I think it's funny that people are saying they didn't know they were heterosexual or not by the time they were 12. I sure knew.

I have a 12 year old student who identifies as an attack helicopter, but seriously unless human biology has changed there are only 2 genders

Retired baller still seeks attention via his children...news at 11 Being born with a wiener=being a male The black community will sweep this under the rug and continue to act like they don’t have the highest gay/transgender population in the US Why does his name have to change? happy for them He's got the money to pay for therapy.

That’s society for ya

Nasty smh. Low moment for this country Will they let him play in the WNBA tho How embarrassing this has to be to DwyaneWade To the public he has to support it/him/her but inside he has to be embarrassed Ok 😞 Fun and games will be over when his/her first boyfriend tries to get to third base. This is wonderful. Having the strength at his age and the love and support he is getting is pure heaven scent. We love you Zaya!👊🏾❤

Could the kid simply be going through a phase or am I just old school? Sad

Identifies? Or is And Look out WNBA. You people that are even talking negative about Dwayne Wade and parenting have no clue what he as a Father is going through. More importantly his soon to be daughter, Zaya. You wouldn't be so brutally negative if you were educated. I'll take things noone gives a fuck about for 1000 alex

and i bet his kooky wife thinks it is really important we all know Move to CA if your not already there. Does he/she have a penis or vagina? I think I could help in this situation

As parent it’s our responsibility to support our kids, D Wade and Magic Johnson are setting good examples for the black community on the subject of being trans/gay Yall got too much hate in ya bodies 😂 At 12 I identified as Batman When I was 12, I was looking at woman that had ass like TherealMsL0ndon

Skeazzzzzzzy ‘Z‘ at work again ... TMZ is becoming so disgusting...ewe! disgusting sleazy At 12 I had a gf that I loved for over a year & I had no idea there was even a word for it. I didn't see the word 'Lesbian', for another year. Kids know what they need in their life. While being Transgender is different than Sexual Orientation.. they know something isn't right.

Everybody in the comments talking about 'sad' is clearly not cut out to be a parent.

The judgement from God will come A biological male can never be a female! Can someone explain to me why im wrong🤷🏾‍♂️ And I identify as a basketball. Don’t judge me. Damn what are they doing to this kid how can a 12 year identify themselves sexually Gosh! When I was 12 got my period Hahahahaha HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

WHO? This is the work of the devil These replies are so concerning man. DwyaneWade hmmmmm!! Must be the money! Tbh we don’t care Child abuse.... Gabrielle turned you son into a mascot.... Rass 🤦‍♂️ We’re rotting away as a country and society,this is counterproductive to American society,what is this binary nonsense and why is a 12 year old talking about being trans unacceptable

good for him ig Sad, this is child abuse- no 12 year old can make this decision. Free range parenting must stop!! Mane not even trying to redirect Man why people tripping over this? I never felt that way about myself, so how could I as a person pass judgment on something I cannot comprehend? Gtfoh😂😂😂😂😂

🙄 This app really has people blaming Wade and Gab for supporting their kid vs living in fear/secret. Kids KILL themselves over secrets like this. I guess it’s shame on DwyaneWade for not alienating Zaya huh 🤦🏾‍♂️🤫 Y’all bout to be so dramatic under this tweet only for 10 years to go by and see him and child doing j fine

A Beautiful family❤️.

I never understood how a kid can be dress up daily as Spiderman and we call it a phase but as soon as they wanna claim another gender we need to embrace and support that as a lifetime decision. Let's let Kids be kids first and support their decisions when they are of Age. Children can be gay at that age. Maybe even younger. But, why can’t us adults just let kids be kids and not worried about things like this?

Deep down D wade like... This can quickly slide into abuse. Seen it before Goddamn 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 good for Dwayne! I identify as a firefly and go by sparky. :)

Yikes Um callin him by his name his mom gave him at birth. I love unconditionally I DO NOT CONDONE. This is child abuse Who cares It's great he supports his son at this age. It may not always be his son's choice in life but if it is, at least he will have support. And that's great! Wtf kind of world we living in now!!! Wow this is some straight BS comps!! It’s funny how they think it’s normal and ok and it’s not!!! Ya I said it fuckers!!!

🧡💛💜❤️💚 When I was 12 me & my best friend identified as sayians then REALITY HIT us because I couldn’t grow a tail or I got punch in the mouth for trying to be a super sayian maybe at 30 YEARS OLD it’s not to late for us what ya think 🤔 Nah fam that not how to parent Looking for attention, shocking...this doesnt belong in the public

We need more MEN like Dwayne..the fact that every so called 'man' in the comments sayin he need to guide his kid or ZAYA dont know what SHE wants kuz SHES 12 is the same so called men that scares or beat their kids into doiin wt they want them to..at least Dwayne no his kids D Wade and his kid at 12 are much more mature people than some of these trolls commenting behind their avis

This is called brainwashing. He probably learned all about it in school. 12? Damn.. Smdh I don't even have to read the comments section to know it will be filled with hateful comments by bigots who say they identify as a corn of cob or some other stupid thing they think is funny. How cute What was his kid to begin with?

Wtf is wrong with this world Well mr, wade needs to teach his son to love himself!! And that he is a male not a female!! This is basic parenting skills!! The child has a problem now. Must be proud haha And this is why the left is ruining this country...so pathetic. This shit is awkward White hollywood liberals: get on your knees and put this dress on your son Wade: yes massa

Sorry for your loss

Never was going to be good enough for the NBA so gearing up to dominate the WNBA. My 5 year old transgender grandson just wept tears of joy when I read this to him. He wants to be a pro basketball player in the WNBA one day. Has his hormones changed yet? Where is his mother ? So sorry for your loss He should be proud of who he is. A boy.

Please. This crap needs to stop, Right Now! When I was 12, all I could think of was discussing movies with my friends, or was that 15? 🤔

Qossi_ 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️ a 12 year old So, another less than 1% phenomenon. Thanks for publicizing this.
