Told my sibling I am trans.
He responds with "That's fine, you can be whatever you want. You're still my brother and you'll always be my brother :)"
I say no you don't get it, he says he does and walks away smiling.
Kill me now
I feel like he took his rehearsed "You're still my brother and I love you" line he was planning to use when you came out as gay, and just said it now without thinking that it might be the wrong gendered word.
I wouldn't be too offended, he HAD only had about 1 second of experience with a trans sibling. Give him time to get used to changing the gender of words he uses.
Okay? Ever tried explaining what it means to be trans instead of just giving the retarded "no you don't get it"? You can literally fix the situation now if you aren't so autistic, like holy shit.
You're probably going to have to explain exactly to him how being misgendered/called the wrong name makes you feel.
My family couldn't have given less of a shit to research what gender dysphoria does to a person and I had to nail it into their brains to stop them from doing this all the time. My sister still slips up every now and then but at least now my mom gives her shit for it.
From what your brother said, it sounds like he either knows exactly how shitty he's being or he is completely clueless about trans; in which case you need to inform him about it. If your family is as uncaring as mine, they probably won't figure it out on their own.
>tell my parents
>dad: you'll always be my son
>me: no that's the point
>repeat ad nauseam a la Abbott and Costello
>he nominally acquiesced
>still does it
>literally too autistic to ask him to stop
I want off Mr Bones' Wild Ride
Be glad with what you got OP, I mean look at it from your brother's perspective. His brother comes out as a transsexual, and he's totally chill about it. Instead of appreciating his unconditional love for you as his brother you find fault in him for not immediately buying into the 'I totally am a real woman' thing? Come on, don't be so selfish and meet the guy half way. In time, he'll do what common courtesy dictates and play pretend.
Really chill on the autism and realize not everyone lurks lgbt and has little to no understanding. If he isn't a shitty person he'll get the idea if you share how you feel and you need support.
b...but this sucks ;_;
I know in the eyes of others I'll never be a "real woman" and its like killing me that I have to basically tell everyone to pretend that I am except if I would go stealth (which I can't)
