  • I'm the same way. I can't disown my child. My love for my children aren't based on their gender or sexual preference. And I feel that's how most people should feel.

  • I would love my child no matter what but that is not something I am sure I could accept. I would still love them just not who they chose to be

  • Obviously it would be weird but I agree..you are who you are. There is not many things that I can think of that are as sad as living a life where you feel different than what you look like. I can't imagine if someone put me in a man's body right now.. it's so sad to me!

  • I would first make sure they were educated on the process, if it was still something they wanted I would support them 100%. I love my children unconditionally, I have always encouraged my kids to express themselves and made sure they know I will support their choices in life.

  • My sister used to be my brother. She is a far better woman than she ever was a man. If it were my child, yes it would be hard, but being that I am a lesbian, I have no right to dictate who or what my child was to become. Although I have often told her to go the guy route please.... my lifestyle is not all fun and games... And I would love my child and anyone else in my family should they choose a different way to live. I am no ones judge jury nor executioner....

  • I would help them get all the information they needed and support whatever choice they made 100%. Love has nothing to do with what sex someone is... If they were in the wrong body, I would do all I could to make sure they got the right one!

  • I would not disown or stop loving my child, but I would probably feel a disconnection with them psychologically after having raised them as a girl since they were born. I would have to have counselling to learn how to go through the changes with my child, as I am sure they would need help, too, to learn how to "come out" once the operation and transformation was complete.
    Since I have never gone through this experience, I am only presuming what my reaction would be.
