My oldest son has been curious lately

My oldest son has been curious about something lately and did tell us 3 weeks ago,date a transgendered female.He is pretty much open to my husband and I through his life,knows we are supportive of him.We raised him right and taught him to be himself in a good way.Seen he is happy,met his new girlfriend Mariah last night and they started dating 2 weeks ago.Mariah is transgedered,a pre op and he still loves her supporting her decision not to have the final operation last month.Mariah started her transition 3 years ago and he met her through a friend of his.My husband and I support them dating and do like Mariah.Learned her family likes him and Mariah is his age,20.I told Mariah that I want to know her more sometime and she is for it.

Do you have a question? I think you're doing the right thing supporting them.

They started dating only 2 weeks ago and have already met each others families. That is just odd. Well in my world it would be.

Re: My oldest son has been curious lately

I don't get the attraction for a transgendered female by a "normal" male.

I mean, does your son find regular women - those who were born with a vj- attractive? Or only those born with a penis that is then surgically inverted to supposedly look and feel like a vj, to be attractive?

If so, why is that? Is it something about the fact that they used to have a penis and now they don't?

I'm with you, I don't get it either. If I was the kid's parent I would not be supporting the relationship.

Especially if you're looking forward to grandchildren.

If he is an adult, his life, his choices. Support whatever makes him happy.

If he is still underage, I would make the same recommendation for any young person dating: this is the time of your life to meet people, have fun. Don't get into a permanent relationship too early in life.

Re: My oldest son has been curious lately

What is a transgendered female - a guy turning into a woman or a woman turning into a guy?

I am happy to answer your question with "I don't know and I don't care and if he or she gets off on watching me take a piss in the men's room then have at it.
