Best bet is to look up the number of a local trans support group or organization, call, and ask lots of questions. Pre-emptive information gathering will help them prepare for whatever ends up happening.

I'm too worried about tears/dirt to wear anything delicate while doing anything where tears/dirt are more likely to happen. So many dresses in the closet gathering dust...

I feel you on that. Can't wear anything nice to work because of the chance I might be asked to do something in the service garage where everything is all grimy and dirty. >.<

Got a major update for you; I finally came out to my brother this past weekend! He was shocked by the news, but my worst fears that he would get angry and reject me completely didn't come to pass He's still coming to terms with my transition, and I don't think he quite "gets it" yet, but it went a lot better than I feared it would *breathes sigh of relief*

Unfortunately it looks like my earlier optimism was misplaced; my brother messaged me on Facebook earlier this morning to say he'd spoken to my parents after our conversation, and none of them are on board with my transition. I didn't ask him not to say anything to them, but for some reason I feel like I've been betrayed

Putting out a request for help - can anybody recommend some resources for parents/families of trans adults? I want to find some way of helping them to understand, but when I try to explain, my words get scrambled and I end up trying to placate them instead of speaking clearly.

I used to work with a guy younger than me on the site. He was fired a few years back for taking a nasty turn, being aggressive to people in the industry, etc.
This week unintentionally bumped into this person again on Twitter. Has now come out as trans (profile says HRT started in January).
Just a bit odd to me, near entirely because I remember what a jerk said person was and the brief interaction we had says that much is still true.
