This Family Wore Lipstick to Support a 9-Year-Old Boy — and the Internet Is Cheering
Diksha Bijlani, a 22-year-old woman from India, would do anything to support her 9-year-old cousin whom she fondly refers to as "Little Cuz" — and that includes getting her other relatives to wear lipstick. Diksha explained that her male cousin had recently been bullied by some of his immediate family members for taking an interest in makeup, so she decided to do something about it.
"[My aunt] had this mini lipstick that she was discarding but Little Cuz saw it and asked for it, so she gifted it to him!" she told POPSUGAR. "He quickly applied it, but then someone in the room said, 'Are you trying to be a chakka (transgender)?' He didn't even understand what that meant. But the same person started teasing him and then he hid under the bed and wiped off his lips because he's afraid that we are all mad at him for wearing it."
Rather than letting the ridicule slide, Diksha set to work and shared what she did in a moving Twitter thread.
