If it makes them happy, then it's worth being supportive over. They aren't hurting themselves, aren't doing anything illegal, and aren't hurting anyone else, so kudos to them for having the courage to be true to themselves. This is something that Alan & I both have always felt strongly about.

I am supportive, and also highly involved! Not only do I run an online support group but I've been there with multiple friends as they transition, so I can even tell them what to expect, and what each of their meds will do!

I help them find psychiatrist and psychologists to do their evaluations, help them come up with a "game plan" if they decide to go through with the full transition including surgery, and hold their hand through everything they need me to!

As something I'm going through myself to various degrees, I can't imagine not being supportive unless there was some very clear sign this person was doing something without really thinking about it or for the wrong reasons. It's hard to say what those reasons are, but I've talked a lot about this kind of thing with other trans-friends, and there are certainly people we worry about in that regard.

If it is what they were really looking for in life I would feel so happy for them and supportive!

I kind of wish I had a family member who has gone through this or was going through it with me. I have such a huge family that it's hard to even think about explaining to half of the family what I'm doing..
