I have been having problems with my gender/sex. I was born in the body of a female but feel at heart a male. This has been going on for about four years, I'm about to turn fourteen. I don't know if I should tell my patents even though I know they will probably still love me. I've told two of my really close friends and nothing has changed between us. Also, I'm wondering if I should tell my boyfriend, of five months now, that I feel the way that I do.

I’m sorry that it’s taken me thing long to reply.

My advice to you: I don’t know your parents, I’m not sure how they’d take this information about you. If you think they’ll be open, I say tell them. If you feel like your life would be in danger if you told them, don’t.

This will be one of the most difficult choices in your life. I wasn’t strong enough to do it until I was able to move out, I’m glad I waited.
My brother Mark didn’t have the choice to come out, he was outed and he now lives with me because of my parents rejection.

I know it’s hard, so please, talk with any ADULT who you feel safe with. Knowing your friends are on your side is great, but they’re around your age, which means they probably don’t have the knowledge or life experience to truly help you.

In relation to your boyfriend: I feel it’s dishonest to keep dating him if you don’t tell him. With that said, if you tell him and he tells others you’ll have to deal with that. Honestly, if I was you, I’d use this time to have “ME TIME.” Allow yourself time to change and grow into the person you want to be. Be a proud single teenager.

I’ve never been a fan of people under 18 dating. I don’t think it’s wrong, I just feel it’s illogical. I feel like that’s the time you should be enjoying building yourself, becoming the adult you want to be.

You don’t have to take my advice, but that’s what I have to say.

I wish you luck on your journey and please, feel free to message me anytime.

And PS: If you can get your hands on it: Read Janet Mock’s book “Redefining Realness.” It’s about her journey as a transwoman and it’s amazing!

My thoughts are with you,
Brittany

I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:

Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts…

Excuse me, Ms Brittany, what cop exactly were you discussing with that previous anon?
brittanysimon brittanysimon Said:
Asker Anonymous Asks:
the cop will not be charged because he was answering a Work email which is required by law for him to answer. he was asked a question by another police officer about an investigation he was doing about if he needed back up he said no back up was required because he was on the job and the message was work related he was legally allowed to use his system computer
brittanysimon brittanysimon Said:

He still killed someone. Doesn’t that matter? Doesn’t it matter that he BROKE THE LAW by killing someone!?

Thank you! That’s what I thought, at least I was hoping. I still need to see it.

This may be the happiest I’ve ever been to write a post. Last year, as many of you probably remember, we held a crowdfunding campaign to help a family with adoption fees. The Watkins family had already adopted an eight year old daughter from Ethiopia. They were so happy with their new family, they decided to adopt a ten year old boy named Rabuma, who they had discovered in an orphanage. They knew that Rabuma was destined to be their new son, but were heartbroken because they didn’t have the money to bring him home yet. 4,000 of you donated to help make this family a reality. Over the past year, the Watkins have been sending me periodic updates, but I didn’t want to share them because I didn’t want to jeopardize the process. But everything just finalized. By a beautiful coincidence, the Watkins happened to pick up Rabuma while I was in Africa. So between destinations, I took a two hour detour to Ethiopia to photograph the occasion. It was such an honor for me to be present at the birth of this new family. The love that had already developed between them just filled the room.
