He can do what he wants, he's still my son, or daughter as it were
He'd probably expect you to pay for it, tho -- that could run into tens of thousands of dollars -- would you be up for that, as well?
If I had the money then yes if not then I would work as hard as I could to earn it while he thinks it over
you'd make an awesome parent! never lose that.
Thank you, I never will
I'd wait till he is an adult to make that choice obviously. But, love him no matter what... this is the most important thing.
When you can pay for it yourself, sweetheart.
When you are 21 and fully independent and can pay for it yourself, go for it. I will allways love you but, dont expect me to be ok with it because, I am not!
Good. He can do the cooking and the washing up
Tell him to get in the kitchen with his mother.
Gone are the days when they were happy to just get a werthers original
I have a son?!?
I would totally support him and help him in any way I could, he is too young for the surgery but you can help him now by allowing him to live and dress as a girl. Get him into therapy as well, as he will need professional support. There are millions of men in this world who feel the same way and I am one of them
But not too young to start hormone treatment to prevent further masculinization. Shame she didn't work it out before the onset of puberty.
Yes it is, but such is life. It took me 60 years to accept myself as transgender. She is far ahead of the curve
"You can't get any of your regular school assignments done, and now you want some woman to give you RE-assignments??? Son, sometimes I swear you ain't got the brains the Good Lord gave a gnat!"
When your 18 you can do whatever you want..... son.
you have taken me by surprise
but come on
.........................lets talk about it
respect, from robbie
I would continue to love him but certainly would not allow him access to this until he came of age and had thought this matter through thoroughly. If he can afford it so be it but my financial resources , the little that I have, could never be offered to him for this purpose.
xxxsandra comment on the specific therapist is the healthiest way to go. If allowed, you could join in and lessen your worry. Tell him it’s not to change his mind but be supported and go through the process with less damageable trauma... make sure to always be by his side
I’m happy to read so much positive comments about...
Oh man. a LOT of discussion. soul searching. this is my biggest fear! just when i become comfortable with my son being gay, this new thing pops up.
Say what hell no god wouldnt like that
Your face is my reaction.
Oh my. I think I would be in shock for awhile.
Bad idea. My daughter was living as a man with a woman taking shots to become a man. I just felt really sorry for him when we picked her up to bring her home. Gender reassignment, for most people, is a REALLY bad idea. Let your son experiment with his sexuality when he turns 18, but don't let him do anything that he'd regret in the future.
