Really getting tired of my sister’s husband making his comments like “Maybe we should get you some bras”, “When are you going to grow out your hair”, “You should put on some make up”, and other comments that are similar. I’ve told him so many times that I’m transgender but it’s like he’s refusing to believe me or thinks it’s just a phase. I’m an adult, I’ve had years of thinking this over. It’s not a phase. Yeah it sucks that most people here won’t address me with male pronouns but most of them respect me enough to not say comments like him. It hurts each and every time and he just doesn’t understand that fact. Yeah true I have a bunch of girly moments but I just feel it as if I’m a girly guy and that’s it. When will he understand. I don’t want to one day blow up in his face from being so pissed. Not my way of doing things. I like using manners and talking things over but sometimes he’s just too much.
Maybe you should take a different approach on this? His refusal to believe it or rejection may just come from a place of ignorance and lack of understanding, but if you’ve repeatedly told or explained your transgenderism to him and still no changes, how about you stop going through the trans part altogether and just flat out say “I am a man.”.
Some people don’t get what being trans is. They just can’t wrap their heads around it. So instead of trying to explain the whole shebang, just cut to the chase and make it simple: I am a man.
Not guaranteeing it’ll work, but I think it’s worth a shot, innit?
