My daughter has come out as transgender rather suddenly over a letter, she was never like this as a child. She’s 18, at university that’s several hours away from home, and I find sickening that she waited until we had paid for everything and then come out. She changed her name behind our back, and I can’t bare the thought of whether she’s gone through with any of the surgeries or chemicals yet. It’s deeply saddening. I’d love to read accounts from other parents so I know I’m not alone in this mess.

I'm new here and am having difficulties just navigating the forum.
My son just told us a week ago that he was 'trans'. I didn't even know what it meant. How my husband and I are desperate to find a counselor that will not use an affirmation approach and a doctor who would discourage or refuse hormone therapy without proper counsel... Our son in s 18, in his Sr year, and waited until his 18th birthday to tell us. PLease, are there therapists near Oconomowoc Wisconsin that anyone can recommend?

Hello, Live.

Welcome to the forum. You account has been activated and you now have access to the members-only area. I invite you to post your query there, as forum members don't always see the posts in this public area.

I'm sorry to hear about your son. I hope he will put off making any big decisions until he has undergone therapy and given his situation much consideration.

You are not alone.

My son is 30 and married for two years, last night I got a Dear BCC email from him saying he was a woman. He's been seeing a therapist for a year and living in Bangor Maine with his wife. It's just so surreal (also getting this announced in a BCC email). I notice it is mostly trans women here (my daughter told me three of her girlfriends are trans). I feel like I'm on an alien planet.

Hello, guest. I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I can only imagine what a shock it was to learn this news. There are many of us here with daughters but also many of us with sons. I encourage you to register an account so that you can post in the members-only area, where you'll find parents who understand what you're going through. Our members don't often frequent this public area of the forum.

Your daughter having three female friends who identify as male is the new normal among teens and twenty-somethings. I don't know how old your daughter is but I'd be willing to bet she falls somewhere in that teens or 20s range. What was once something incredibly rare just 10-20 years ago is now common, yet we are supposed to believe a 3000% increase in girls who identify as male is simply because kids aren't afraid to come out now. I agree with the researchers who say they have found evidence of social contagion. There is evidence of social contagion among males, as well.

Welcome to the forum. I do hope you will register so that you can find support among fellow parents. You are not alone.

Hi, GNCMom, and welcome to the forum. 

Your membership has been activated and you now have access to the members-only area.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for any confusion; bots post spam on this public area of the forum; the spam is deleted, which leaves all these blank posts within the pages. I can see how it would feel like you're replying to no one.

I invite you to take a look around in the members-only area, where you'll find supportive parents to converse with.

Welcome. You are not alone.
