Of all the challenges that parenting brings, this is one that few consider they might have to face. Halfway through a moving documentary about her firstborn’s life, the singer Cher falters. There isn’t much sign of emotion in her face – thanks to all that cosmetic help – but it is there in her voice and eyes. She refers to her child as ‘she’, then ‘he’, admitting she is ‘struggling with the pronouns’. ‘At some point, I’ll have to start calling her “him”,’ she concedes.
