I don't agree with the trans thing, but even I think that's an extremely bad reaction. You have my condolences.

Not their existence but the person who commented probably meant that they don't agree that trans is a real thing and neither do I gender is simple if you have male organs you're male if you have female organs you're female

First of all, try speaking to an actual scientist or geneticist for once, and good luck telling them that "gender is simple" because you couldn't be more wrong. Secondly, do you have any idea what a douche move it is to tell someone that the condition THEY suffer from, that YOU do not, isn't real?! People do this to me all the time with ADHD and I literally want to punch them. It's really not hard to not be a dick, trans people aren't hurting you or anyone else so live and and let live!

They might have been supporting this person through college, which is not uncommon, though the latter two items would be questionable at best, and straight-up illegal in most places.

Getting a credit card from your parents and having college paid for you IS NOT A MILLENIAL THING. This is something wealthy families have been doing for centuries. Or however long, I don’t actually know for sure.

Honestly, this whole millennial bashing thing has been played out far too many times.

Let me add: I’m referring to getting money from your parents being around for centuries (or however long). Obviously credit cards themselves have not been around for that long.

Wait...how do you condone or not condone gender dysphoria? That's like saying you approve or don't approve of clinical depression or being color blind or something. It exists, end of story. I mean, at best you can say you believe in it or not, but you can't really condone or not condone it.

You condone or not condone a lifestyle by having an opinion of that lifestyle.
You show some class by being sympathetic to OP's parents overreacting to the news and even more class buy saying you hope that things improve.
You become part of the problem when your keyboard warrior instincts kick in and you default to a shitty comment instead of a respectful dialogue.
For the record, there are a lot of people out there who think of gender dysphoria as a mental health condition (which it is formally classed as) that should be treated with counselling, rather than surgery and hormones. This is a discussion that far too many people are not having. I personally know two trans people who transitioned (thankfully they stopped short of bottom surgery) and are now super messed up and trying to transition back.

gender dysphoria is a mental illness, and the best course of treatment for many who suffer is transitioning to the gender they identify as. I don't know how you can say you don't "condone" what is a recognized mental illness and the best treatment for said illness.

it's like not "condoning" chemotherapy for cancer patients.

As someone who is going to college to become a mental health practicioner what you said is completely wrong. Most of the field except for very few practicioners/psychiatrists believe the best thing to treat gender dysphoria is to transition. There's also risk of misdiagnosis of any mental health disorder. It is quite possible your friends were not trans, but believed that was what fit them. I'm pretty active in the LGBTQ community, and know multiple trans people who know transitioning is the best thing for them. I do think detransitioning is an important topic to discuss, but the fact is you also have to realize that transitioning for some people is the best thing for them.

My immediate reaction is: run fast, run far.

I don't know if you can reason with your parents, but make sure to keep any friends or support groups you know up to date on what's going on in case you need support...or heaven forbid an actual rescue.
