Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur has always been a polarizing figure in the public eye. However, his recent revelation about his estrangement from his transgender daughter has earned backlash and support from the internet. Here’s the full story.
His Upcoming Biography
In an excerpt from his upcoming biography, published by the Wall Street Journal, Musk shared his painful experience of becoming estranged from his daughter, Vivian Jenna Wilson.
A Painful Experience
The rift, which Musk admitted had pained him more than anything since the loss of his firstborn child, Nevada, to sudden infant death syndrome, stemmed from Vivian’s gender transition and, more notably, her adoption of extreme Marxist political views.
She Legally Changed Her Gender
Vivian, who legally changed her gender and name last year, declared she wanted to sever all ties with her billionaire father, stating that she “no longer wishes to be related” to him “in any way.”
“Don’t Tell My Dad”
When Vivian was 16, she messaged the wife of Elon’s brother, writing, “Hey, I’m transgender, and my name is now Jenna… Don’t tell my dad.”
A Full Communist
“She went beyond socialism to being a full communist and thinking that anyone rich is evil,” Musk told the author.
In the biography, author Walter Isaacson suggests that Vivian’s journey played a significant role in Musk’s ongoing preoccupation with what he calls “woke” ideology.
Woke Mind Virus
Musk said, “Unless the woke mind virus, which is fundamentally anti-science, anti-merit, and anti-human in general, is stopped, civilization will never become multi-planetary.”
Musk Blamed the School
Musk attributes some of this ideological shift to Vivian’s time at Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences, a prestigious private K-12 school in Santa Monica, where annual tuition can reach as high as $50,000.
It’s Happened Before
This is not the first time Musk has linked his daughter’s political beliefs to her educational experiences.
He Publicized the Name
However, it is the first time he has publicly named Crossroads, a school with a history of catering to the children of the rich and famous, including Hollywood celebrities.
The School’s History
Founded in 1971 and initially affiliated with St. Augustine By-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Crossroads has evolved into a prestigious institution.
Its alumni roster reads like a who’s who of Hollywood, including Zooey Deschanel, Jonah Hill, Jack Black, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others.
Parents Will Do Anything for Their Kids
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident. One Twitter user wrote, “Some parents will do anything for their kids except listen to them.”
Brainwashing and Indoctrination
Another user commented, “Brainwashing and indoctrination have long been the cornerstone of the democratic party, just read the news here.”
“Schools Have Overstepped Their Bounds”
While a third user added, “Schools have overstepped their bounds with discussions that poison children who are too young to understand the permanent consequences of their actions.”
