I have felt different since a very young age. My mother indulges my femininity while my father is repulsed by it. I try very hard to keep it inside and not make my father upset but I'm 16 now and I'm so tired of hiding, especially since everyone knows anyway. I told my mother that I am gay and transexual and that I am not being secret anymore. I am sorry to offend but my mental health is important. Get over it. Does anyone think it's easy to be me? My conservative Japanese father will barely look at me now. It's sad yes, but I am so liberated to wear my skirts and makeup in public now. I hope he gets over it soon.
