Coming Out

Someone wrote…

I’m 16 and i feel like i have to come out to my all the time. I first came out explaining what i feel and all the information i researched. It has been a year and they still do not get it. I have to “come out” all the time but they dismiss it as a “phase” or a “rebellion” and keep calling me their daughter. It makes me feel rejected or like i don’t know what i am talking about. It makes me feel like a fake or to young to know that I am transgender.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Coming out is process. At least with me it is. It is something I do sometimes more and sometimes less. And with new insights along the way. It is nice when you are accepted, but even with (too) little acceptance you will know who you are. Many of us have felt fake at times because the experience can be surreal at times. That is not our fault, but due to a culture not quite used to us yet. But time will tell your not fake at all. You will grow up to be your own beautiful self regardless. Wish you all the best. You’re not alone. Much love.
