Dec. 9, 2014: Very Cool Parents

December 10, 2014

Now these are very cool parents: http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/231918/parents-run-birth-announcement-in-newspaper-after-son-comes-out-as-transgender/.

There are so many parents of trans kids who throw them out and consider them “damaged goods.” But when I read stories like this one in Death and Taxes magazine, and the one I posted in my last blog entry, it gives me hope that there are transgenders with family members who step up and take a stand for them.

I understand if family members need to take some time to accept that the person they considered their son, daughter, brother or sister is now the opposite gender. (The families in these articles are extraordinary). But I just don’t understand those who discard their transgender loved ones without a second thought. All of that person’s good qualities are suddenly null and void because he or she is trans. That person is reduced to one identifying factor instead of being seen as the whole person he or she is.
