Joining The Support Board
(13-Aug-2023, 03:23 PM)Marge Bouvier Simpson Wrote: Welcome to the forum, Alex99.

Your friend sounds like a classic case of a girl who may be in danger of using gender identity to either fit in, become someone new and brave, distract herself from her problems, etc. 

You are a kind friend to be concerned and to be looking for information that might help prevent her from becoming a lifelong medical patient and/or making irreversible changes she may regret.

I think you might be in a unique position to help her, since these kids are often taught to see parents as the enemy, or at best old-fashioned who just don't understand gender identity issues. Since you are a friend and closer to her age, she may be more willing to listen to you and consider what you have to say, although it can be tricky for sure when telling someone things they don't want to hear. A lot of our kids are deeply indoctrinated and refuse to consider or even listen to any other perspective. There is advice in the members-area on how to approach this.
