  • Yep. If they were truly transgender, I would even support the hormones or treatments... If they just want to wear a dress, no problem, they just better not forget me when they go shopping.

  • I would support my child in any attempt for her to be her authentic self. In a situation like this I think the child has so much to face that the last thing they need is critcism and ridicule from their own parents.

  • LET them?
    If this is something they truly feel then I would have to support them with what they want to do. They have to live with themselves and be comfortable with who they are

  • Yes. I would support it 100%. It is about my child's best interest then yes. I thought about, before my child was born, names that could go either way. Both because I like names that can be both male and female names and because if he or she decided that it would be better to live as the other gender, their true identity, then they wouldn't have to change their name.
