Tonight I went to see a viewing of "Trans" the movie. What a great film. It brought back memories that I had buried for so long.
I got to meet some for the people that were feature in the movie. It was an a great discussion about parents who have transgender children. Is made me think about how would have been if I came out at the age of 7.
Would my parents have been as supportive as they are now? I would hope so. Why are we seeing an increase in the number of young children able to transition so young. What do they have that we did not? The Internet.
I did not know what I was called until my dad transitioned. One of the first questions I asked was "Is it hereditary?" Looked it up in the library and found nothing. It was not until recently (the last year) that I learned more about what I was.
So what would our lives been like if we had the Internet when we were kids?
