Congrats, OP. What did you think her reaction would be?
My parents haven't really accepted me so much as they don't think I really have a problem. They don't think I should transition, they don't even want me to grow my hair. They think I should just put the feeling to the side and go on with life like a normal man. I'm pretty sure they don't know I'm taking HRT, though. They're still feeding, clothing, and housing me while I go to school, though. So I have that to be thankful for.
>>5657843 I'm glad i found this thread. If youre who I think you are, I would like to apologize. Im sorry for disappearing like that. We got everything fixed now and I'm back on Skype. You probably moved on but I hope youre doing well!
>>5657895 >>5658148 As far as I know, the need for a father hasn't so much been proved, but rather the need for two parents, and even other family members for that matter.
Family is the primary social bonds a person has, the fewer and the weaker those bonds are then the more likely a person is to suffer from mental health issues. Kids from single parents are also way more likely to seek family bonds in all the wrong places, like gangs.
My mom had the same initial reaction, but it's become clear by now that she actually has no interest in all acknowledging my identity. I have literally never had a conversation with her where she called me my preferred name or pronouns without having to be corrected, and she usually gets annoyed if I correct her more than once in a single conversation. She's the only person in my life who fails consistently to even seem interested in trying to change how she views me. Aside from her, I get misgendered maybe a couple times per year.
>>5663766 >children of two straight cis parents are all always more well adjusted
Absolutely not true. Two good parents are infinitely better than two bad parents.
You would have to be willfully shitting yourself if you think that two deadbeat drunks (who happen to be heterosexual) would raise a child better than two loving, intelligent, and sober parents (who happen to be homosexual).
I am a transgender woman but I want to avoid telling my parents as much as possible for as long as I can, my mom hates people who are different, she is a bit racist and totally against gay and lesbian people, I can only imagine being alienated and hated by my family for the rest of my life if I came out and told them about it. Do you think I should hide it as long as possible or just tell them straight up, even if it means being disowned?
