Coming out-FtMDear Mom and Dad,
Before you keep reading, please have an open mind and remember that I'm still your child. I love you both, although I don't show it sometimes. It's hard for me to write this because I'm honestly terrified of what you will think of me. I'm still the same person on the inside that I have been forever. But what's on the outside needs to change.
I hate feeling like I'm trapped in my own body, feeling like I'm wrong. I don't remember when I started feeling this way, but it's been a long time and I'm certain now that this is what I really am. I'm sorry, Mom, that I'll never be a girly-girl, and you'll never do my makeup, and I'll never wear nail polish, and I'll never have long, pretty hair and I'll never be your little girl again. I'm sorry. It's just who I am. I don't want to wear dresses and lip gloss and the cute outfits that you guys got me for my birthday. More to the point, I'll never be a girl. I hope you aren't angry or disappointed in me. But this is who I am and
