    If you had a friend who you thought was a woman but was actually a man, would you continue being that person’s friend?

    She IS a woman, regardless of your narrow-minded view on the subject. Of course, that you even feel the need to ask the question suggests she’d be considerably better off without you as a friend…

    I don’t think you’re using the word ‘friend’ in the right context here. If they’re truly a friend then it doesn’t matter and you should love them for what’s on the inside. And if you’re a good friend then they should’ve already confided in you, because they trust you and know you won’t abandon them in their vulnerable state. It takes a long time of soul searching to come out to someone, and we don’t do it unless we think we can trust them. If they can’t deal with it, then they’re not a friend!

    I have actually has this experience, and I am friends with this person today. I really don’t judge people on those aspects, I get to know someone based on their personality. I don’t base what I think about them on their race, gender or ethnicity. I feel everyone should get to know someone before they base their judgments. Jeanele Romanowski, Caucasin/female 19, student.

    I would. But I think I would want to start talking about trust and honesty.

    Yes I would, although I admit that it would surprise me. I think that with a little time it would seem totally normal.

    Heck yes! If they present as female and are working to make that their perminant stautus then actually they are female, no matter what the accident of birth gave them. I as a transexual woman, am female. In my self image and in my soul. I am in the process to correct my body’s appearance to match what I always have been in myself.

    heck yes. Because if they’re truly transgender, then they are truly a woman. What their body looks like has no bearing on who they are in their mind.
