My father is transgendered. He should have been born a woman. (I will be using the male pronouns for now, at his request) And now, after 50 years of living as a man, repressing every urge to be the woman he should have been, he has begun his transition. While it was a shock at first, and not the easiest thing to adjust to, going through this together has really brought our family together. Contrary to his fears, my mother didn't kick him out, and my little sister and I didn't reject him. It's been harder than we expected, but we still love him and eventually her.
I'm going to be writing a series of articles over at Eden Cafe about being the daughter of a transitioning male-to-female (MTF) parent. I haven't quite decided what exact topics I will be writing about, so I'd love some input. What would you like to hear? What do you want to know about all this?
