Open Letter To Dad And Mom

Mom and dad here is how I would like to grow up. I would like to have girls stuff in my life. I know your asking why I would like to have girls stuff in my life? I just think girls stuff is so much prettier and offers more variety instead of my boring boys stuff. I would most enjoy being able to wear dresses and skirts instead of pants and shorts. I also would like to have girls nighties too for bedtime. They look so much more comfortable to wear instead of my hot boring pj's I am wearing now. I look at girls my age and want to dress like them and enjoy it too. They do look so very comfortable in those items I am asking you to buy for me. I have been looking on the interent and have found that there are many boys who share the same feelings as I do. So please allow me to dress and play with girls things too. Don't be mad with me if I wanted such items in my life. I just feel that I don't like being a typical boy. Please love me even though I am wanting to be more girly. I just want your love and support to let me live my life in my own way. I do look online and see the girls outifts and they all look so much better than boys clothing and I want to have them please. I have seen pictures of boys in plaid skirts and dresses and they do look very nice in them and I want them too. I am not wanting to become a female, just a boy who wants to experince dressing more comfortably. I have seen many boys who did such things with support from their parents. Boys like Chris Whitehead from the UK and Same Saurs from Washington state wearing skirts and dresses look so nice. They did get support from their moms. So please let me have them too. I am not doing anything wrong, like getting into trouble and being grounded. I also feel that I shouldn't be judged for wearing pretty things either. I just want to show my true feelings and not have to hide them from you. I would be much happier that way. With much love your son .....

Now if I was this boy, thats how I would write a letter to my parents asking for this change. I do feel that we need to talk more open with our boys about this even though it might be uncomfortable for all parties involved. We need to bring forth this new way of living.

That's a great letter, Melodie. One that more boys should write to their parents.<br />
Have you read my book New Life? It's available at Amazon and Smashwords. Not just plugging it here. It's relevant to the post above. It's the true story of a boy who knew he should be a girl and how he went about talking to his parents. The life he/she lived after is amazing and I'm glad I was able to be the writer chosen to bring this story to the world.

This is a great story of a boy not only seeking acceptance but being allowed to lead an open life in how he feels comfortable in it.
