the life of a guy living inside a female
I think this is ignorance more than anything. We had a youth last night make a disparaging remark about transgenderism, to a trans* youth, with another trans* youth within earshot, then didn't want to discuss why his comment was inappropriate and disrespectful.You could approach him and let him know that what he said hurt you, and made you feel violated. One thing our youth tend to agree on...calling them out, calmly and nicely seems to work well.Peace <3Jay
Wow. Talk about feeling violated. Maybe he didn't know what to say and that's all he came up with?I agree with Jay that you could tell him his response was hurtful; at least then he'd have learned something?
Definitely a brave step. I wish I could come out at work but I'm not quite ready yet. I'd give him a little time to process it. It's possible he may come around after a day or two.
