I know that Jenner spoke about helping the LGBTQ community during the interview last night. I am so glad Jenner did! the interview was done so amazingly well and my heart bursts with joy for Jenner and every other Trans* woma, man and child who will benefit from how eloquent and genuine Jenner was.
I knew that with Diane Sawyer being a part of this, it would be done with the utmost class and dignity. However, she exceeded my expectations. I don’t think she really should have asked Jenner about the SRS, BUT I also think that I need to keep in mind that not everyone knows what is appropriate or inappropriate.
I think that an important thing for the trans* and cis community to take away from this is that Jenner struggled for DECADES and even thought about suicide … Jenner didn’t go through with it though. Couldn’t go through with it.
I implore those in the trans* community to follow Jenner ‘ s lead and live to see another day.
I implore those in the cis community to have an epiphany … BRUCE JENNER, famous, an Olympic hero … almost committed suicide bc this was so tough, imagine how this process is for those who do not have fans. “We are going to change the world”- Bruce Jenner

I really don’t expect an immediate change, but I don’t feel like anyone in this house except me and the oldest daughter are even attempting to use proper name or pronouns.
If by April 1st I still don’t see any effort I am going to tell R not to answer anyone unless they get her pronouns or name right!
Maybe that’s a touch over dramatic but she will be presenting female at school. How can I expect her to command respect there when she doesn’t receive it at home!?
That it is time.
1st: T chose a new name and I formed everyone they need to use the she/her pronouns (she will now be referred to by R here on the blog). The name she chose was my grandmother’s name. She never knew my grandmother’s name!

Why did these things come at the perfect time you ask? R’s older brother outed her to a schoolmate today. R has been having some serious anxiety all day because of it. She decided that she wants the school to know. I will be meeting with a few staff members tomorrow. R will stay home with me and return on Wednesday.
We are starting to draft a letter to family and friends who do not know yet.
I think we are both ready for this!
None of these terms automatically = homosexual.
T has made it abundantly clear that they have 0 intentions of dating a boy. T likes girls. T wants to marry a girl. T wants to have a family with a girl. T just enjoys a more feminine existence.
