    I really dont care if Elliot is a he or a she now but if the character in the show is female then either continue playing female or recast. SIMPLE

    Renaming yourself when transition is very important …. But Vanja is male name, it’s confusing a bit.

    Did his voice change?

    Ciswoman here, and I agree with the comments, there are so many similarities between us to celebrate and we can celebrate each other even when we don’t fully understand another’s journey or experiences. It would be great if we could just see other people without anger or fear and look after everyone, not just stay in our own lane and fight for our own cause. Elliot has a right to choose his name, his pronouns, decide on surgery he wants to make him look a way in which he feels comfortable, and use any toilet he wants (as long as he washes his hands!), and he has a right to do all of this in safety, and with the respect all people deserve.
