And, now he is taking to his Twitter to announce that he has been getting gifts from his new boyfriend — handmade no less!
Born a girl named Kathlyn, but now known as, Stephen Beatty Jr. tweeted: “I’m terrified of socks. My boyfriend has made me some though!
“They’re my birthday present and are coming in the mail,” he wrote and also gushed about his new guy. “I miss my boyfriend.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Stephen recently took issue with Cher’s transgender son Chaz Bono, and said he was infuriated when Bono told the New York Times that being transgendered is essentially having a “mismatched” brain and body, akin to a “birth defect like a cleft palate.”
“I do not have a birth defect. If you feel like you have a birth defect, fine. That’s how you feel. Go feel that,” Stephen wrote.
“Do not put it onto me. Do not define me that way, and do not define other trans people that way unless they claim that label.
“It’s beyond that, though. Chaz is a misogynist. He is a trans man who seems to believe that his female-assignedness and his female socialization makes him immune from being a misogynist, and he is manifestly wrong.”
He continued, “This man doesn’t represent our community… The next time you hear Chaz’s name brought up in a conversation about trans issues, point out the things he’s said about surgery, ‘birth defects,’ and women.
“Because I don’t want a single person thinking this guy is the best of us.”
Fun fact: Chaz’s mother Cher dated Stephen’s father Warren in 1962.
