As is inevitable, I'll have to actively discuss how I feel, and more importantly, who I am, to my parents. Unfortunately, there's the obvious, albeit outstanding problem of reaction. If there is any way to make this easier when saying something, I would honestly like to know. That said, they already... Have some idea, the concept having been revealed to them by proxy by an earlier psychologist. However, as I was scared beyond all reason at the time and was actively trying to keep myself from hearing what she said, I have no idea whatsoever what she said. Last I heard anything, my dad thinks I'm gay (Honestly, I think he might think that being gay, bi, etc. are all the same thing as being trans, unfortunately.), my mom... knows that's not it, but I don't know what she thinks per se. My primary fear here is that in the end, I'll end up in a state of condemnation, as I have seen happen in my family at least once, which I will not elaborate upon for privacy's sake. Also, I didn't use the term, "Coming Out" or the like for two reasons. First, they already know to some degree. Second, it seems to me that using that term is invalidating, as it says, "They're just a guy/girl who wants to be a girl/guy because <insert inaccurate reason here>" as opposed to, "They're a girl/guy in a guy's/girl's body". I know I may have posted something similar before, but as I don't want to necro-post, I'm starting a new thread.
