Why would a transgender person feel ashamed or scared to tell their best friend about them?
I decided to ask this tonight and see what answers I get. My best friend knows she's 90% of my heart and has been since the day we became friends in middle school. Back then she was this hot boy named Jay and everyone was crazy for her. Over the summer I noticed some slight boobage and noticed that Jay was wearing makeup, I thought he was beautiful and eccentric only to find out that Jay wasn't a boy. Jay was a girl and wanted to be called Destiny. I found out awhile ago (4 months) that she was trans and didn't want to say anything out of fear. I'm her friend and I'll love her no matter what. I don't know a lot about transgender people, but she tries to teach me some stuff and I've got to be apart of her therapy sessions two or three times.
I read a question where a girl hated that she was trans over what someone posted over the internet. I went through something like that a week ago with my friend and that's why I asked this. My Destiny thought I would think of her as still a boy and wouldn't accept her, why? I realized that she was never a boy a long time ago and that this is who she is and there's nothing wrong with her. We talk about girl stuff and deal with drama from stupid bitc-- girls together. She's no different from me.
