THREE CHEERS FOR LIBERAL CALIFORNIA

Uh, I think you're posting in the wrong thread? How is Kamala Harris asking for permission to kill an obviously bigoted bill that was made by an obvious bigot a sad?

I like the last paragraph though.

I dunno. I feel like Kaladin's parents are actually being really supportive (Dresses, piercings, etc), they're just terrible at it. So... can we not all jump on the 'All B12ers should hate their parents' bandwagon?
My mom is kind of the opposite of supportive though. She has definitely told me I can't be a girl before, because I don't meet some standard of femininity that requires I have played with dolls as a child? I don't know why...

And my dad is just terrible at being supportive? I hope? He emailed me saying that he was just joking and I shouldn't get my ears pierced... and that I should come down from the storage cupboard because he won't stab me. :-[

And actually, I'm not allowed to wear dresses because they are "too girly"... The best I can get is androgynous stuff (at least that's what my dad says). :-\

Nothing wrong with the tomboy look honestly. But what the hell do I know about fashion anyway.....

PFP

Maybe just talk to your dad about this, Kal? Seeing his past instances (which, out of context, can be taken as abuse...but that infers a ton in between), he does mean well. So does your mom--the thing is, how they go about with things has their reasoning behind it; that bit with your mom, what she said before, is more...pity(?), I believe? Given that's how she 'knows' how to work with things, it must be something she has experienced beforehand which affected her a lot.

Same with your dad: it seems he tried humor but...ehh.

Maybe do the direct approach before jumping off the springboard by how you personally perceive it? I'm feeling like there's a dissonance with intent at the moment, but that's me guessing. Talk to them about what they think, then have a nice conversation while carrying it on! Ask!

Also the only stuffed animal I treasured a ton to this day was a nice dalmatian named 'Wizzer' on his blue collar. It was a gift from my nephew when I was 7. I did not sleep with any other kind of thing, other than one pillow all nights beforehand.
Then I had an stuffed orca, as a souvenir as a gift.

They are still present until the current day, and I'm wondering on giving it to my niece, who just turned 3. Wait, yes...must do it...argh the memories ._.

+1 to Tiruin as well, if you haven't done that.

That said I'd like to iterate again that you shouldn't be afraid to get them involved if you feel you need to. It's better to get help involved when it can still do some good, even if the problems are still fairly small, then to wait until they become so big they are incurable. I've also known people who really needed help, yet kept putting it off and saying that if they waited a little bit and tried just a little harder without help things would get better. Asking your parent and confronting them is great, but don't be afraid to go to help if you decide you need it.

Best of luck with this, and know that we're here supporting you as best as we can. :)

Yeah, what Tiruin said. 

I can't even imagine what you're going through, though.  I hope your parents (well, mostly your dad) are trying to be supportive, and are just expressing it poorly.

The best I can get is androgynous stuff.
I'm kinda torn here, 'cos you should have the right to be whoever you want to be, but at the same time you're still pretty young, and the young are outstanding at making decisions they could regret later.
I would personally say stick with the androgynous stuff for now, until you move out, simply because that way it can be a 'smooth transition'.

This advice should be taken with numerous grains of salt of varying size and shape though, 'cos at the end of the day, I'm not trans and I dunno anything.

-Actually Tiruin's Problems Snip- ._.

Don't do it! Kids don't appreciate them as much as you could, and when you're 80 you'll probably still want to have them sitting around the house somewhere.
I gave away the teddy-dog which was so close to my heart as a child, and I've regretted it So Much.

@Tack: Theoretically, a person tend to be able to figure out their gender by the time they're around 15.

I say theoretically because that's not the case with me, but then again I'm only 16.

Although, yeah, HRT miiiiiight be a bit of a problem because it makes you sterile, which may be a problem if you intend on having biological children.

I slept so badly this morning that I punted Totoro some three feet off the foot of the bed :< ~Nightmares~
What, you sleep with a stuffed animal Totoro? That's adorable.~
I've got a stuffed white tiger I've slept with since...I think since I was 7? so for 12 years.
