My brother wants to be a woman and I just don't believe that it's real...
My brother is a man who believes he was born in the wrong body, he told me a week ago that he has believed this for some time. My parents are supportive and are supporting him in his choice to become a woman and I have done my research and I just don't believe it exists. He is a MAN, he was born a man... My parents are angry at me, they want me to be supportive (my brother is 18). My parents don't seem to understand why I can't just accept him but I can't, I don't believe he is a woman born into a man's body. I believe he may be a man with some psychological issues however who should maybe get some counselling.
I'm probably going to get bashed to high heaven to this but I just don't believe in it. My husband has ALWAYS though my brother is a wacko so it's a I told you so situation. I would like some advice on what you moms think of this, have you known someone like it? Please do understand I am in shock.
EDIT: I DON'T HAVE AN ISSUE WITH HIM LIVING AS A WOMAN BUT I THINK THE SURGERY IS BARBARIC, UNNECESSARY AND JUST PLAIN WRONG. THAT'S MY REAL ISSUE.
