Coming-out present?

Heya, pitters

A friend of mine came out last week as transgender. Everyone has been very supportive and cool, and she seems a lot happier since. However, I have no idea what the expected protocol is here - I also want to show my support in a non-crude sort of way. I can't tell if getting her a present would be hilarious or patronising.

So - anybody have any experience with this kind of thing? Anybody come out as anything and got cool presents?

Something sentimental that shows support. If they are going to change (either physically or how they identify with their gender) then it'll be a tough road ahead of them and it's good to show you're there.

ie - what whoomit said.

A present for coming out?

I don't know man, sounds like something you would do when you don't know how to deal with it.

How about you and your friends just take her out to dinner? Or a group photo of you guys in a nice frame. Your support is probably the most important thing to her, I think a photo of all her friends around her would help illustrate that.

Wait, so is it a man that thinks he's a woman or a woman thinking she's a man? That matters.

Asking about something like this in the pit...you obviously know the type of answers you will receive, therefore one can only assume you've opened this thread already knowing what you're getting her and are just sitting back waiting for lulz

How about don't do shit. I don't get f@cking presents for being straight.
Or male, or being Multi ethnic.

You're making it weirder by doing anything at all. Praising her for who she is, is like patting a dog on the head just for being a dog.

Wait..

Do you mean she as in she or she as in he but you just don't know any better so you're still saying she? It makes a difference.

That's because you're gross and not very nice. I get presents all the time.
