I'll start off by saying my daughter thinks she is transgender. Female to male. I don't believe her. There is no way that she is transgender because I watched her grow up and experiment with so many girly things and never have a problem with it. She only started telling me she wanted to be a boy when she was 11, when she started hitting puberty and everything became confusing for her as it normally does for the average preteen. On top of that, there was another transgender female to male going to her school at the time. I told her that I wasn't sure what she wanted me to say or do about it. I'm highly against letting children transition, especially not her. She's impressionable and she tends to claim things about herself that just aren't true to be popular. She was diagnosed with BPD at 14 so that was a huge eye opener as well. My daughter alters the look of her facial structure with my makeup. I previously told her that it was okay for her to use it as long as she didn't ruin it, but I wasn't aware that she was going to make herself look like a boy. after she got a few strangers saying "have a good day sir" while out in public with me, I decided to revoke my permission for her to use my makeup. Never have I seen my daughter have a meltdown as great as she did. She screamed at me for being "unfair" and "unsupportive" and she went on an entire rant about how her father and I threw three of her packers out in the trash and how we "couldn't even bring ourselves to buy at least a binder." I'm not going to entertain something that I think is completely false. She told me she hated me and stormed off to spend the night at a friend's house. When she came back, her hair was cut short. I'm at my wits end here and I'm sick of my daughter's entitlement issues and her negligence to respect any of my wishes. I'm considering taking away everything except for her basic necessities from her until she learns to be grateful for what we've done for her. Before I do that however I want to know if her outrageous behavior has some validity to it.
