avenjar asked: Hi there. A friend of mine recently came out as trans, but they said that they don't plan on living as a guy until they go to college. Should I start referring to them with male pronouns and their guy name now, or just continue calling them their girl name and female pronouns until they leave? Thanks, and this is a great blog!

Anonymous asked: I don't know if this has been asked before. My partner would prefer it if i could introduce him to my family as trans--however, I have no idea how to explain it without them thinking I'm in a lesbian relationship.

He's changed emotionally & physically. & the grief of losing my girlfriend is hitting hard. Yet...

Although I was concerned for helping him and making it as easy as I possibly could for him in life, I still felt a little lost. I knew that my...
