Rain's line amuses me. And Kylie too, apparently. XD
Kylie's response to her label(?) is interesting. She doesn't know. To some people, that probably sounds absurd, but it's not really that uncommon. I mean, there are plenty of people who actively don't know if they're gay or not, or trans or not (I myself have been unclear on my orientation for some time, for example). And Kylie's already been sort of established to not really be up on the lingo and also unsure of how to define herself. Furthermore, I never envisioned her to be the studious type (much less, research things on her free time).

Also, I've said this before, but I'm trying to raise money for SRS, and I'm still struggling with it. If you can help, it would be most welcome. If not, don’t worry about it. I totally understand (you don't need to feel bad or apologize if you can’t).
Sorry, but being a kid I can't get a job.. no job no money ^^;
Also I really like this page.. hard to say why.
Yeah, I've been in the "don't really know the right label" department for a long time now. Fortunately I've always felt it more important to have the "this is how I am" side of things sorted than to be able to compress it down into a word, but it does get pretty annoying at times.
I can totally relate to that... I knew since I was pretty young that something was wrong with me but it wasn't until some time in high school that I even learned the word transgender and that it was actually possible to transition. I thought I was just crazy until then. If I was educated on the subject earlier in life, I might not have felt so crazy and so ashamed of myself and I might have come out sooner.
Also, it's interesting to note that Emily seems to be super cool with kylie... maybe Rain will reconsider sharing.
Kylie's back! Actually, that's about all I really wanted to say.
Hmm, Emily sure took that like it was nothing, didn't she? And she knew right away that she's genderfluid... Come to think of it, she knew what asexuality is too... You'd think someone going to a catholic school wouldn't be too savvy about this sort of thing, yet here we are... very peculiar...
Also, hooray for Ky being back! (^▽^)
everyone so far thanks Emily should be kept in the dark about Rain situation. But with meeting kylie she appeared to be super cool right off the bat. Heck, this is been the most supportive response . So far. Even Rain friends. needed time to deal with her situation. again, most of our minds against Emily is do to one friend that had an argument against her, which we still have no idea what problem is. but that it has to be major at this point. Or that being incredibly petty against Emily
@LittleLynn84: Not absurd at all. I didn't identify as trans until I was more than 20, cos I'd been taken in by the media and thought it was the same as being a cross dresser. But I still knew it didn't feel right "being male", I still knew the person in the mirror was someone else, I still knew my heart did a little leap whenever someone called me "she" and all through my early adulthood I resisted accepting the label of "man" even though I couldn't quantify why it felt wrong
That went kinda disappointingly easy. I mean, I'm all for absence of drama, but this is kinda like missing that top step of the stairs. I expected there to be confusion and awkwardness and not only does it not happen but everything just goes completely without any hitch.
But this does bring up some questions. I've wondered before how come Emily is so familiar with all the gender/orientation terminology apparently without needing to. And what is keeping Rain from coming out to Emily? By now it's pretty obvious that she'd be totally cool with Rain being trans, probably even support her.
