The transgender daughter of billionaire Elon Musk seeks to change her name and gender, and she does not wish to be related to her “biological father in any way, shape or form.” She filed a legal petition in Santa Monica court for a name change and new birth certificate.
The April filing went public Monday, the day after Father’s Day when Musk tweeted “I love all my kids so much.”
Vivian Musk, who was born Xavier, turned 18 earlier this year. She is taking her mother Justine Wilson’s maiden name and changing her full legal name to Vivian Jenna Wilson. She is one of five children Musk shares with her mother. The pair were married from 2000 to 2008.
Justine Wilson, a Canadian fantasy author, posted online that she is “proud” of Vivian’s name change.
Musk is on record supporting transgender issues, though the proflic social media user tweeted that all the pronouns are a “nightmare.” That came in response to a now-deleted 2020 tweet that drew some fire.
The post said “when you put he/him in your bio.” Beside the quote was a drawing of an 18th-century soldier in front of a stack of dead bodies with a cap that says “I love to oppress.”
The Tesla CEO points out that his electric vehicle company has a 100% score from the Human Rights Campaign measurement of workplaces for “LGBT equality.”
The billionaire, the world’s richest person with a net worth estimated at $214 billion, has been public with his conservative political shift. He recently declared that he is leaning towards supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president in 2024.
DeSantis is now the left’s second-favorite punching bag — behind former President Donald Trump, of course — after leading Florida’s effort to block child grooming.
There was no explanation of the rift or why Musk’s daughter wants to disassociate herself from her father.
If his daughter’s transition is the reason, Elon Musk is far from the only parent to run afoul of the transgender ideology. Woe be unto those who deny that men become women and women become men just by wishing it to be. And it is not enough anymore to “tolerate.” You must “celebrate.”
