I've already told my family. Mother never saw me as anything short of her daughter since that day. My fiancée knows, and she treats me as her equal. My younger sibling knows, and only calls me "big sister" unless we're somewhere public, which she calls me "big brother" or by my name. It wouldn't bother me so much that my friends don't know, but the thing is, they're all guys. Normal high school guys, unlike me. My self image is screwed, I hate my physical appearance. But they would never understand that. But the thing is, I can't keep on pretending to be someone I know I'm not. I have to be true to myself. But I am so scared to lose those friends. We were going to try and keep in touch as friends, have parties, do college stuff. But if they knew, I'm dead. So I just wish I knew how to come out of that annoying proverbial closet.

    It may seem like the end of the world to lose people you were once close with but opening this door will expose you to people who love you for who you are, and that will be worth it in the long run.

    So, you are moving to Venus. Good for you.

    You know, real friends are a rare commodity. Very rare indeed. I am afraid your fears are justified, and that is a pity. You can't blame your friends, current society is not equipped to really accept things way out the norms. I feel for you.

    Shamefully I must admit, that when I was your age, I probably would not understand it. But that never stopped me from respecting.
