RE “FOR some students, holiday time is coming-out time, too” (Page A1, Dec. 26):
Three years ago we received an email before Thanksgiving from our daughter. She told us she would be wearing men’s clothing when she came home from college, and no longer wanted to be described with female pronouns. Over the next weeks we saw our child’s breasts were bound and hair buzzed off. We didn’t quite understand the difference between gender and sexuality, but learned quickly and allowed love to guide our parenting as our child transitioned from female to male.
