What would you do? Will you still love them no matter what? Do you think inflicting mental/physical pain on trans people is okay? Does this turn of events make you consider learning more about the trans topic? Maybe you think it's only okay for them to be trans because they are your friend, other trans people are still freaks?

Doesn't matter, they are what they are.

If it was a boy turning into a girl, I might love them more.

I'd wonder why they didn't come out earlier.

Would still bang 10/10

"Don't care, none of my buisness, consenting adults and all that" is my basic line.

Still.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoO_PXY5QV8

I'm somewhat trans/homophobic, It's a flaw of mine, I accept that. I feel "uncomfortable" when people are openly gay/transgender etc. but I will never hate someone for this. If you are a "good person", it doesn't matter because you can never "pretend" to be a good person. If you are a good person then everything else is just "filler".

I'm not friends with someone enough to even begin to care.

Doesn't matter to me. I'll still be friends with them. I would just wonder why they didn't tell me sooner.

How about this being a hypothetical situation, then?

Honestly, to many people that are "trans" it's a big deal to "come out". Some people even get disowned by people they assumed were their "friends and family".

I know that to many "progressive individuals" this shouldn't be a "deal" at all, but in many places "it simply doesn't work". I know what you think, it shouldn't be a deal. But it is, and that's reality.

I don't know. Probably just care slightly more than not at all. As long as they don't get all tumblrish about it and get offended by every little thing.

I know. I just find it silly this matters. From both sides really. The side that glorifies it as well as the side that is ignorant about it. As someone who is brutally honest to a fault, it wouldn't change my opinion on the subject, regardless of them being my best friend or not. What gets me is when people change their entire views of something/someone based on a menial issue. Seems rather pathetic.

Sigh, in a perfect world...
