I realized I feel like a man…

Hi, Since 3 or 4 years, I realized that I feel like a man, although I'm a girl, physically. When I was young, I was feeling like If I was born in the wrong body. That made me feel very uncomfortable in public. Today, I feel angry when people call me by my "true" name or "Miss", or everything that reminds me my real gender. To ease the situation, I wear daily men clothes and my close friends call me by a male name. Moreover, I realized that I'm attracted by men. As a result, I needed to share my problem with my parents fastly, because I became depressive and confused. However, they didint believe me, and they said that I was probably fool. They hope that I'll be cared, some day, but I'm enough mature to know that the situation wont change. Later,I would like to become a realy man, but I'm afraid to loose my parent's love. I need your help, to know how to make my parents understand my sorrow and my trouble. How should I expalin them the transsexuality(and also my "homosexuality") issue?



Was it right to explain to my kid that me ...

I just came out of the closet a couple of month's back.I have two boy's there seven and six, now the seven year old is the articulate one it's like he's been here before; I recently got into a relationship with my best friend of five year's but for my son's they know her as their aunt. So naturally, I had to explain to him that we are a couple now some people think that I shouldn't have went there but;I figure he is a new aged child he'll pick up if I don't explain to him. Did I do the right thing or was I wrong should I have waited until he was old enough to under stand?
