We are like a stupidly tiny minority, you are more likely to meet a Bahai or a Sikhi in real life.
Although apparently in more liberal areas we are more common from what I hear, like 1/200 rather than 1/5000.
is/was anyone you know extremely negative about this?
yes, grandparents are often very hard with stuff like this. i don't often even think it's worth bothering. i remember my grandfather's unreserved antipathy towards homosexuality, and i can scarcely imagine telling him something like this. well, you're very brave - i genuinely wish you the best of luck...
Reminds me of my cousin. When he married his boyfriend his grandfather disowned him.
Good for you Kirby.
I know you won't physically need them but will you carry tampons in your purse? I know of a few other people who were transgendered that did. I assume its partly for friends in need but it might also be a bit of a psychological security blanket type thing. Don't know much about how the whole thing works actually,
It's because if a girl asks you for such things it's in the girls' unwritten code of honor not to leave her hanging. Men are not expected to carry them around but most girls I know have a couple on their person just in case they're needed. Even if I didn't like a girl I would help her out, only because I know what it's like to be in that kind of situation.
Best of luck to you Kirby.
Also, yes, female breasts are really something else...
