ok but why is every ask answered with 'write a letter' like thats literally the weirdest and most awkward thing anyone could do especially if they live with whoever it is (like most people asking still live with their parents)
Because some people’s parents are really transphobic and some peoples parents cut them off when talking. By writing a letter you can get out all your thoughts and emotions on paper and they can take some time to read them and have their emotions without cutting you off. So afterwards when you sit down and have a face to face conversation the facts are there and maybe they can have a rational conversation for once with mom and dad instead of it being a whole mess of emotions..
It’s not the most weird or awkward thing to do.
It’s a good tactic.
