Ok...so...my family...my parents are amazing and accepting people but they, being cis straight people, have their ignorances. I just need some help responding to some stuff....so, it's basically like a Q & A, I say what my parents said, I say my response, and then you say your response. Sound good? (By the way, these are all real.) Here we go: Q: How does it feel to be a boy? My A: How does it feel to be a girl? Q: Do you hate the female gender? My A: No, I just hate being the female gender. Q: Why do you hate your name? My A: I don't hate it. It just doesn't fit me. Q: But last year you said you were a lesbian? My A: Well, the year before that I said I was straight. Q: But I've never really thought about my gender. Why do you? My A: If you are happy with your gender, you don't think about it. If you aren't happy with your gender, you do. Q: Why do you want to be a boy? My A: I don't. But I am a boy. Q (Note: this was in response to me wanting to get a t-shirt that says "transgender and proud"): What if you aren't transgender a year from now? My A: I can get a shirt that says: "My favorite color is blue" and that doesn't mean that a year from now my favorite color will be blue but it doesn't really matter cuz the shirt is still cool when my favorite color IS blue. I'm not sure if these responses are really...right. What would you respond with?
