Transexual from birth? What the hell are you talking about? If you're referring to hermaphrodites, that's not considered "transgendered" Hormone therapy is used to produce testosterone. You're the dumb ass here.


Your clitoris is enlarged by testosterone therapy and they can use skin grafts to create a false erection. Most transgendered men opt not to do that, and to just have their breasts removed, and chest sculpted. You don't have to have a penis to be identified as male.


People can be and often are aware that they're transgendered from a pretty early age. Single digits is not uncommon. It's perfectly possible, and reasonable, for someone who's 14 to have known for some years already that they were transgendered. With support of the parents and access to appropriate medical and mental-health practitioners, some people start the transition process before the secondary sex characteristics develop at puberty. It sounds like OP's son's custodial parent is supportive and, thanks to support from that parent, is fairly well-along in the process.

I'd encourage OP to get to know his son better and be more involved in his life. Things like this should not come as a surprise.


Actually both are correct, courtesy of my sisters pre natal book which talks about such things. But obviously, OP didn't know. The child might, but OP did not. I know you have a great deal of counseling and evaluations before the state will recognize you as the opposite sex. So no matter what the situation, OP should know.


Hermaphrodite and intersexed are different. To be a hermaphrodite one need have both ovaries and testes- ie both sets of sexual organs. This is pretty much only caused by chimerism- when two babies merge into one at the embryonic stage. Intersexed refers to most other conditions which result in ambiguous or incongruent genitalia.


SEDY? The hell does that mean? You're in eighth grade, you can't spell, and you're embarrassed at "all of our ignorances" ? All the transsexuals are sexy? (which I'm assuming is what you meant) you've met one,, not all. Plus OP's problem wasn't their child not being attractive, it was not knowing why exactly they received that letter in the first place. I'm weeping for your ignorance.

India is a third world or a newly industrializing country if you prefer. Like most countries of the sort it's government system isn't up to par with Europe or north America's. so a mistake like this was bound to happen. Sorry op aha hope you get it sorted out

This confuses me. She could not have gotten a sex and name change without you knowing about ut. At that age, you'd have to sign for testoterone shots and the like. It had to have been a mistake.

Let's hope it's all a misunderstanding and they accidentally sent you the letter or something.. I wouldn't even begin to know what I'd say to my daughter if it were me that received the letter..

A good conversation starter would be, "So, is there something you'd like to talk to me about?" and to not be accusing, and to keep an open mind.

It's not the child's fault their mind is wired differently than the body was built. I don't know what I'd do if I felt like my body was some alien creature to how my brain works.

So, no, I'm not hoping anything of that sort. I'm hoping that the OP sits down with their child and they talk about this, and the OP understands and supports their child.

Ron, he has a mustache on his face.
You know, where he grows his beard.
