i agree with you an amazing amount the second person i ever kissed was a trans-boy/very close friend but one of the things that makes it so easy for most people to just sweep the serious trans stuff under the rug is that most people just honestly dont understand.

trans people (for very understandable reasons) dont talk about the trauma of being wrong wont openly explain (in my experience) what is is they feel and why they are doing the things they are doing. i mean it is getting better but

when my same friend i mentioned transitioned when we were sophomores in high school i was one of about 3 people he actually told what he was doing and why and i had to explain his new name new pronoun and a lot of time transgender identity to about 100 people in our school because they didnt want to ask him and if they had he would not have been willing to talk about it.

so while i totally agree with you i think society can only take so much blame for ignoring the information which i think we have to admit isnt really readily available.
