having a trans-parent can be difficult too - discuss?!
got thhis from the lovely MCCOOZE
'Hi, i wrote in about being the child of a father who transitioned when i was in high school! I'd love to talk more about the experience/chime in as needed! i should mention, however, that my childhood wasn't the greatest because it turns out that sometimes it really sucked to be raised by someone who didn't particularly want to be a parent (an experience which contrasts with that of a trans parent who transitions *before* doing the kids thing) someone who was angry and scary and depressed much of the time. She's much happier now in most ways, but we certainly have a complicated and convoluted past, which sometimes makes talking about our relationship tricky (especially since it's something I'm really just beginning to “work through” for myself). Anyway, yes, I'd love to talk about it, despite the fact that my experience is fairly complex (but whose isn't, especially if a gender transition is involved?).
Feel free to ask me anything (really)!!
P.S. The “ask me anything” was directed more at anyone in general who might be curious about my experiences, since I put a lot of value on sharing stories. I really don’t mind talking about any of it (sometimes I find it helpful for myself!) Also, love the blog name change :)’
really feel for Mccooze’s and their childhood, as these things go through MY mind ALL the time. I am trying MY best but we will have to see.
Please FYVCTP’ers it would be brilliant to talk about our feels for our children and maybe take this oppotunity to engage in a converstion with someone who’s ‘been there’ :)
transsuperman816 asked: I just wanted to thank all of you for having this site exist and for all the families posting. I've been transitioning for almost a year and my biggest dream is to be a father, so to be able to see real people like me raising children and being a family makes me feel my dream is possible. For transdad, what has been the biggest struggle in regards to being trans and having a child?
:) Ok FYVCTP’ers any TRANSDADS out there want to answer this lovely fella?
rememberthisinyourheart asked: "vaguely" cute? Why so harsh?
Right that’s it!! :) :) I’m changing the vaguely to very (corporate branding is expensive) :) FUCK YEA VERY CUTE TRANS PARENTS it is then :) (I’ve been off being a FYVCTP and while I’ve been gone the public disentnhas escalated)
Thanks for the prompt and
Ill never eavesdrop of @miss-sakamotos conversations again :)
