Coming out to my mom about being trans... - October 7th 2011, 01:41 AM

So, I need a little advice here. I'm FTM, and have been for over roughly a year now. As of now, I've only come out to one person, my BFF at school, who is the person I trust the most, besides one other person.

My mom.

I'm honestly not sure on how to go about coming out to her. She's a Libertarian, like myself, so I'm sure she would be accepting, but I'm honestly not sure as to how I should tell her... with my friend, it was pretty much a casual pulling to the side type deal, but I'd rather not be so casual with my mother.

I have been dropping some hints with her, such as asking if she ever wish she had had a son, and what she would name him, and etc., as well as how she liked the name Trip (which she does love, hehe).

So, what do you guys think I should do? Should I just sit her down in a quiet place, or what?

Thank you. C:
