    Is the little boy the new Greta Thunberg with a LGBT sauce? On Monday, December 2, an 8-year-old child was invited to the Assembly of Extremadura, a Spanish regional council, reported the HuffPost. His only qualification is an ideological notion of his gender.

    Extremadura, a western Spanish region bordering Portugal, comprises the provinces of Cáceres and Badajoz, a remote area of mountains, forests, lakes and reserves. The capital, Mérida, is known for Roman ruins. Now it has become famous for another reason.

    “I’m a little transgender girl and in the last four years I’ve only been following one path: happiness,” Elsa Ramos said at the beginning of his speech to the assembly. The boy who wants to be a girl, was invited to the regional forum to discuss bullying and LGBT discrimination.

    Suicide attempts among transgender and non-conformist gender adults are among some of the highest in the world at 45 percent.

    Beyond the child’s personal experience, the little boy, who is already very politically (and ideologically) engaged, also encouraged the assembly to be concerned about the fate of the LGBT community. “The most important thing in all of this is that, ladies and gentlemen, you who are dedicated to politics, despite the threats, continue to pass laws that recognize the diversity of everyone, and especially that trans people have the right to to be who they really are. Do not let people deprive us of this happiness,” he told the assembly to the applause of the deputies.

    The boy who dresses as a girl, is the spokesperson of the Triangulo Foundation and insisted on telling his story. “I am at Nuestra Señora de la Soledad School, the school in my village, and there I was lucky that my classmates accepted me as I am from day one,” she said.

    He added: “However, it is always necessary to remember that only I have the right to say how I feel. Four years later, people continue to make mistakes. As if someone could judge if I’m trans or not. I also want to say that I was lucky to be born in my village. There, everyone knows that I am different, a transgender girl.”

    His speech quickly became viral, spreading on social networks.

    Elsa’s intervention happens four years after his mother, Anabel Pastor participated in 2014 in the action against LGBTI-phobic Bullying. “My girl has not suffered any type of harassment. I hope she can live in a world without hate,” she said during her speech.

    Pastor says her phone has not stopped ringing after Elsa appeared on all television stations and media. There is great expectation for the eight-year-old girl who has left everyone who watched her “speechless”.

    Elsa chose the same name as the princess of the movie Frozen, but the charade was questioned by the conservative Spanish party Vox, which has entered the Lower House with 52 deputies, as well as by some Catholic groups like HazteOír.

    Anabel Pastor says she considers Vox to be “a threat to my daughter and to all who are like her. For their lives and their rights. Also for women”.

    Vox has questioned the notions of LGTBI diversity and among its objectives, is to ban this type of content from classrooms. “Not long ago she asked me why she was not in the textbooks. She is very vindictive and finds out everything, so we thought together that it was a good idea to explain to the rest that trans children exist,” explained Anabel.

    This last school term has been important for her, explains the mother, because in just four years Elsa has become visible in the town and school for dressing as a girl. “I was not completely happy before and now I am,” Anabel says however.

    Before, at home he dressed and expressed himself as he wanted, but not outside. “The fear of being assaulted or insulted was there,” Anabel explains. Everything changed during the carnivals of 2016, when the child was disguised, precisely, as Princess Elsa, the protagonist of the acclaimed Frozen.

    His family decided at that time that they would take the step and that Elsa would begin to “live as she feels”.

    Anabel recalls the impact it had for Elsa, despite his young age, to see the orange HazteOír bus which toured several cities in Spain under the slogan “Boys have a penis, girls have vulva. Don’t be fooled”.

    Vox has been outspoken against “gender ideology” and it has been trying to introduce the so-called parental pin. In practice, it is a request for authorization so that parents can veto certain content that is not consistent with their moral, ideological or religious beliefs.

    In his public statements, Rocío Monasterio compared “zoophilia” and “paraphilia” with the LGTBI education talks.

    Key legislation in this regard still remains to be processed in Congress: the LGTBI law, the Trans comprehensive law and the reform of the Gender Identity Law of 2007, which currently requires a series of medical requirements for people who want to change their name and legal sex and, in addition, exclude minors like Elsa and people without Spanish nationality.

    The objective of leftists is to modify these requirements. Several leftist MPs expressed their support for Elsa, including the far-leftist mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, who said she “cannot think of words that are more important or precise than those spoken by Elsa”.

    The media reports portrayed the child born as a boy as a female, and used the pronoun “she” throughout.
