Do you mind if I show my dad some pics of you as an example because he thinks trans is a teen fad and you’re a great example as to how it’s not. I just want him to accept me for who I am and am willing to try anything to get him to understand

Absolutely, and just to let him know he is not alone, my father is 68 and he and I are still working through all of this. He struggles with the thought of his son becoming his daughter. I try to be as understanding of his feelings as I can, but nothing changes the fact that that this is a very real human condition. It is not a disease or a fad. It has been a part of human existence for centuries across all cultures. The only thing that has changed recently is that the media has decided it is a hot topic and this is why it “feels” new or like a fad to people.
