Charmion BS: Empty Nest Syndrome (59* d) RE: BS: Empty Nest Syndrome 08 Oct 19


I have a trans cousin. I learned that "Hmm, okay" was the correct response when this truth was revealed to me, and that I was wise to not react to her more extreme reactions (posted on social media) to her experiences of her new life.

I kept off her Facebook page because I did not know what to say and therefore posted nothing. It later occurred to me that it's a good thing Facebook did not exist when I was thrashing through my early years as a young soldier in the early 1970s, so my parents and older relations did not have to suffer through my more extreme reactions to those experiences.

My young cousin has calmed down a fair bit, now that life on the other side of the gender line is less new to her.
