when i came out as transgender i said to my dad, "don't think of it so much as losing a son, as your son is a tranny"
the pic is of bees
Didn't actually say anything to comfort my mom because she was super supportive and even seems kind of relieved/glad that she finally knows and can help me with the problem that's turned me into a depressed fuck since I started puberty.
I haven't came out to my dad yet but I'm thinking I might have to give him the "don't worry I still like girls" line
I convinced them that I: had my friends' support, so I wouldn't be lonely; knew other people who has gone through (and are undergoing) transition, so I had experience and other similar perspectives to look to; was happier and had more to look forward to than ever and; still loved them and wanted them in my life.
They're still having some trouble with it, but they're getting better, and conversions are much less awkward.
when i realized i enjoyed wearing female clothes it was like all my past lifetimes from 1 million years ago exploded in my brain and then i got bored and now i just dress to fit in with nirvana fans.

Since this is the only Coming out thread
I have been a depressive fuck since puberty, tried to kill myself more than once, and been in a psychiatric clinic once with electroshock because antidepressants didnt do anything for me.
At 19 I told my mom for the first time I wanted to be a female, and dress like a female. She got sad and angry at me, telling me I was a degenerate, etc.
One of the few times I was happy was when I started crossdressing at 21/22 years old.
At 22 she caught me crossdressing, so she hitted me, threaten me about kicking me from home and told me to quit doing it and quit being feminine. Since I live in a poor country and I cant afford a place to live with a job, I had to quit crossdressing.
I tried to explain her that no matter the way I feel, I will still be the same person I am in what matter, I will still love them as parents, I will still be a good person.
My mother probably thinks I enjoy putting things in my ass and I fuck with my friends. When Im the most reserved person I know, I dont even get along with the trannies on /lgbt/ because they always talking about sex.
She paid therapy for me to stop being a faggot.
I still cant believe things turned out this way.
>I expected something like this
>They're actually not overreacting
>Still not on board, but not overreacting
Things turned out better than expected.
Just the stuff below.
My father thought I was pranking him.
I said that, I didn't wear my mother's clothing, but I think my dad just thought that made me less trutrans.
My dad asked me if I had been molested again (he asked me throughout childhood) when I came out, more than once too, I think.
I'm a little jealous of all the people whose parents asked if they were molested. My mom never asked me.
Years later when I finally told her I was molested, she called me a liar, then told me I needed to get over it and so bring dramatic, then said it was my fault for not running away, then told me I was a monster.
i just told my mom that i'm trans and then told her to let that sink in and process it and we can talk about it later.
coming out shouldn't be that big of a deal. if your parents/guardians/whatever are over religious just don't tell them and move out asap.
I didn't think about it from that point of view, anon. My dad just asked because he cared, though he cared the wrong way. That must suck to be completely denied like that. The monster comment is about whatever you came out as, right?
what my parents got most upset about was whether i was straight or gay so i took the opportunity to also come out as bi
then i had to reassure them that i'm not dating anyone and don't plan to
iunno people tend to think i'm pretty garbage
the weirdest thing is my best friend telling me i'm not enough of a tomboy
