That's true but I was more imagining him just giving up "showbiz" in general and trying to live a normal life. See it's one thing for actors playing a role people remember, but Desmond is a political and sexual advocate.This is a lot worse than that. At least child actors have talent and a true ability to entertain. Not saying that that can't become toxic for them, but Desmond has no talent (can't dance, can't act, can't sing, no showmanship skills whatsoever) and the only two reasons for his popularity (or should I say infamy) are his childlike body and the fact that his mother has turned him into a public spectacle for perverted men to lust over. As soon as he enters puberty and starts to develop masculine secondary sexual characteristics, it's all over. No one will remember him or be interested once that happens. Piggylou knows this, so she's doing what she can to tard cum his "career" whilst Desmond is still in possession of his "moneymaker" - his body.
So even if he gets out, he's going to have to become an advocate against it as people recognize him. There's no way to check out if he hypothetically wanted to later on, this is a cultural flashpoint that is totally unprecedented. He is the first drag queen child, you can't just become a real estate agent after that unless you go into witness-protection levels of identity recreation. Too many people care about this way too much on all sides.
