Perth mum in the spotlight for her ‘controversial’ and ‘transphobic’ views on parenting

A Perth mum on TikTok is in the spotlight after she revealed the “controversial” and some say “transphobic” way she claims she will raise her son.

Louise Barry is the mum of one admittedly adorable four-month-old called Levi and has more than 2000 followers on TikTok.

Despite having just four months of experience parenting, like many other internet users in the year 2022, Barry clearly believed it was imperative she share her opinion on parenting and gender.

In a video she posted at the start of November, which has since received more than 250,000 views, Barry reveals her “contentious” parenting opinions.

The four ways Barry would be raising her son Levi were presented in sync with the viral TikTok mashup of the song Bodies by Drowning Pool and Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen in which the lyrics “nothing wrong with me” are repeated.

Bouncing Levi on her hip Barry launches into the four “controversial” ways she will be raising her son:

1. He will be raised as a boy because that’s what he is

2. I will not stop swearing around him — they’re just words

3. He will be taught to treat others the way he wants to be treated

4. He will be taught there are only two genders.

Barry’s opinion attracted more than 1000 — mainly supportive — comments from other mums and dads.

One user wrote, “Yes this and for that, I just hit the follow button.”

Another said, “You will be a good mother, he will be a good kid”.

Others, however, didn’t agree completely with Barry’s take, some disagreed with the swearing while more disagreed with her opinions on gender.

“Or you let your child have their own opinions,” a user demurred.
