First off I just want to apologize if this post is all over the place I’m not sure how to write it without being totally scattervrained lol
My 13 year old step-son has recently come out to school and to my husband and I and his mother that he wants to be a girl, he lives with us full time (we have been suspecting if he was trans or gay for a few years) now I have tried to talk with him, (he really doesnt like to talk about it with us) he states he likes girls, and I have asked him if he wants me to find a group for him to be apart of and he said no. All of that is fine with us, my husband and I are both bi and his mother is a lesbian, so he has all of our support and has always known that. Some of the issues I have is he is always stealing my clothes despite having his own girl clothes, (he has done this for a few years), and he steals my feminine products like pads and tampons and we have no idea why. Also he trys to hide dressing like a girl even when in the house with us and knowing he has our support, but he has been a little more forthcoming about asking questions about bras recently. Should I buy a regular bra, or should I buy him a bra with breast forms built in or just buy him some breast forms for when he wants to dress up, so he has the feeling if breasts but all of the ones I have seen are very anatomically correct with large nipples and all, is it strange or inappropriate for me to purchase him that, because of his age, or is it wrong for me to do so just because if he is into girls my husband is worried that we would basically be giving a teenage boy a “sexual plaything”
What can I do to show him more support? Should I punish him for stealing my clothing? What can I purchase him without it being weird or inappropriate? How can we get him to open up more, or is that just a teenager thing to not talk to parents? Can anyone help me, this is our eldest child and I didnt grow up with anyone in the LGBTQ community so all of this is new to me. I do have an appointment with a therapist for jim but idk how receptive he will be to that.
