I understand that many parents have problems accepting the trans nature of their children. I can understand that, I did have occasion a while back to work with the father of a former colleague who had subsequently transitioned, they were estranged. The father felt betrayed, in some way as though it was his masculinity that was being denied. Reading others blogs I hear of similar situations where parents cannot accept that their own children are still good people, just not of the gender they may have appeared. I know we are out of the ordinary, but there are worse situations to find yourself in.
