I wonder if gender roles or ideas weren’t so strict people would feel more comfortable in their bodies? ie it is okay as a boy to like pink, dress, and all other stereotypical ‘ girl things’. I am not saying she isn’t valid in her choice but her mentioning ‘ this year I’ll wear pink’ or ‘ this year you’ll grow your hair our’ as if that is what makes a women a woman is an interesting topic to think about. I know it is more complex and either way I hope to raise my children without any strict gender ideas, and hope they can always feel comfortable with who they are. I will love them all the same regardless of anything!

My little cousin thought she was supposed to be a boy and not a girl as she was born. So we agreed when she gets older to get her start transitioning but later on she said she was wrong and she actually is a girl.

Wow, I love her ! She looks a bit like Hailee Steinfeld. Ellen's right, she's so eloquent and calm despite everything that happened to her. And she's funny too ! As well as a badass ! A true gem.

Not all Christians are like that. You aren't a true christian if you think you have the right to put someone else down and think its okay because thats what 'christians' believe. You're wrong. God created all of us to be just like each other (the spitting image of him). You're actions are your own. I am a christian and yes, i may not share the same values or understand other peoples lifestyle. Who am i to judge anyone when i myself am not even close to being 100% perfect. I leave the judgements to God. Only he can judge. Don't put down the name of 'christians' please

Nicole had to go through a lot and it’s really inspiring to see her on tv, giving the trans community representative because it’s very important. I love Ellen for giving people like this voices for everyone to hear ❤️

I am a biased person but Nicole seems so thoroughly legitimate I have no hesitation in believing she feels and is female. This is not something I can say for everyone who has come forward with this shift. And I love how naturally she ended up becoming an actress. This doesn't feel shoehorned at all and I heartily welcome her to the silver screen in the movies and television I watch.

Omg I forgot they were doing this so when I saw her on the episode I thought she was just going to be an adorable mini-kara here for some episodes then gone...

God bless this young woman and her family. I can’t imagine the adversity she and they faced and continue to face, but I am glad that she received love and support from her family and that her dad stepped up even if his daughter shook the world view he grew up with. I can’t wait to finish bingeing season 3 so I can see the character she plays on Supergirl.

Someone must be cutting onions😢 the bullying she went through is so wrong. If she wasn’t happy being a boy then let her be happy and be a girl, everyone deserves happiness any gender. She is stunning and wow I would have never guessed she is trans, just amazing

seriouslyy thats sooo disgusting, it takes your child being attacked for you to "get it"??????????????????? Misogynistic ignorant fool. He'd rather his child fit into some kind of norm, than be happy what a disgusting pig.

You may not look like your twin brother anymore but you look so much like your new twin sister haile steinfield
Pink Starlite (1 day ago)
She's very pretty and smart and charismatic. I hope she gets to be as famous as Laverne Cox and I think she can because is a really good actress (very good in Royal Pains) and just from this interviews, you can tell she has what it takes to be a star. So, Hollywood, stop casting men in trans women and give trans actresses like Nicole, Indya Moore, Alexandra Billings, Harmony Santana, Jamie Clayton, Trace Lysette, Rebecca Root and many more the change to play these roles and show it is.
Victoria Nguyen (1 day ago)
I honestly watched the supergirl season premiere before this and I had no idea indication or anything that she was transgender. I even commented while watching the episode that wow she is soo pretty.
Denise Sandoz (1 day ago)
Sadly now she has adult bullies to deal with.
youreale (1 day ago)
I think is not fair label her as "trans", even knowing she was not born biologically a woman. Everything in her figure looks so natural and feminine. I just can't imagine how deeply sad she may have felt while she was bullied and trapped to her former life. Maybe the science can explain cases like that in the future.
Palesa Makhetha (1 day ago)
Like how Laverne Cox has an identical twin brother. Really cool that her mom was cool & that her parents spoke to the school & made sure she was able to transition.

I was 4 years old also when I realized I was supposed to be a girl. but I didn’t know how to tell anyone so now I’m finally coming out and have started transitioning

Kevin McDougall (2 days ago)
Actually, trans girl and TLC star Jazz Jennings also has a twin brother. Nicole's "Supergirl" character and the Agent Liberty storyline will, I hope, break through to some closed minds in regards to LGBTQ+ rights and the current hostility towards "illegals" through this "comic book" family show.
Kevmaster2000 (2 days ago)
She reminds me of Hailee Steinfeld and Peyton List (the CW and Gotham one, not the Disney one).

Yo i didn't even click or read the title and I knew it was a transgender person sitting there

Did i say that???? I think I said I knew she was trans before I even clicked. Idk if you can read? I didn't say nothing about her build
Pink Starlite (1 day ago)
You do know there are female models who have the same build as Nicole. Look up Brigitte Nielsen. Not every woman is meant to be tiny and petite.

He (Nicole) was born with an X and Y chromosome, and that still hasn't changed. It's simple, really. I can have as much plastic surgery to look like "batman", but it doesn't change the reality of who I actually am.
Education (17 hours ago)
Pink Starlite Unfortunately sometimes the truth can hurt. Sometimes it's better to hurt the person a little bit now so that the wounded person does not hurt for 30 more years of his/her life. It depends how you treat the wounded individual, however. Would you allow an alcoholic to continue being abusive towards his family for fear of being "mean" to the alcoholic? While it's not wise to be straight up and confront him/her for his behavior, it might be better to lovingly explain to him some consequences of his actions.
Pink Starlite (1 day ago)
No, she isn't. You're being mean.
Gabrielle Sagan (1 day ago)
+Pink Starlite people find all kind of excuses to justify wrong he is a man and that cannot change.
Pink Starlite (1 day ago)
That's why SHE is referred to as "Trans woman", not just woman, Einstein. Like, what do you hope to accomplish? Gender dysphoria is not a choice, mind you.
Nancy Ramirez (2 days ago)
It’s those “Christians” that commit such hateful acts and speak so savage to those of the LGBTQ community , which is why Christians get a bad rep, no we are not all the same. They twist the bible and use it to justify their actions. I’m so sorry to those of the LGBTQ community if a “Christian” did such terrible things, that is not what a Christlike Christian should do. We are to love one another and be kind to everyone we come across with.
ChillinW TheTs (5 hours ago)
Nancy Ramirez Not all Christians, I’m a Christian but I don’t think its anyone’s place to judge. DONT SAY “Christians” Your literally referring to me as well.
Larry Bob (8 hours ago)
Nancy Ramirez I’m a Christian and I have my own beliefs. Me and my family believe in certain things, others do not agree with. But even if we think someone is doing something we don’t agree with, doesn’t mean we sit and judge them. And no we don’t try to change them or anything. I’m sick and tired of people assuming Christians are stuck up, good for nothing, people. Because half of us are not. Especially my family. So don’t judge me before you know me.
Sophie Elsmore (8 hours ago)
Nancy Ramirez I fully agree. I am a Christian and in no way shape or form would I ever make fun of or condemn people for being who they are. Sure I may question whether they’re sure about what they want but you’re right - we are called to love others, no matter what and to love everyone the same. I have plenty of friends who are part of the LGBTQ+ community and respect and love them the same!
Hey I'm Kaye (8 hours ago)
