I've always had issues with my mom their parenting style isn't the greatest..I mentioned my struggles and heartaches in a previous thread over this. I want to come out to her about me being transgender and gay. I know it won't be easy as her idea of trans is a he-she, a drag queen, a creepy guy dressing like a woman and trying to seduce men. Also, two guys kissing and two guys even suggesting that there will be a sex scene on TV makes her disgusted and sick to her stomach. But, I went to try and fix our relationship when I'm older and financially dependent despite all the times she's held me back and as a person not as trans, or gay, holding me back from being my true powerful self. I know she's toxic, but I believe everybody can change. Perhaps it's only wishful thinking..as she is my mom. But, though I've tried many times before I wanna do this big effort thing and try one last time. To at least maybe have a grandmother for my kids someday..one that doesn't brainwash them and teach them bad ideas. What I'm asking for is advice on how to teach her what lgtb+ really is. What it means to be a trans man. How gays aren't stereotyped and any different than any hetero relationship. That it's okay for a gay couple to hold hands, the children won't get scarred for life. What kind of things do you face as an lgbt+ person of the community? And what are some ways to explain the truth behind it and clear up the ignorance behind it. And at the least I want her to have an explanation at family dinners when I show up a changed person and a changed man.
