Help validate a small trans boy :')
Hi. So I'm Jason Roake. Some of you may know me, some of you don't. I'm a sophomore in high school.
I have a problem. I was born as Juliette Roake. That's the name on my birth certificate, my passport, and pretty much everything else.
But I am Jason.
Currently, I need as much help as I can get. Some members of my family are not convinced I am a guy. They simply just don't believe it. (No naming names, but… it's pretty hard for me at home.)
Because I'm still seen as a girl, I have issues with depression. I also suffer from gender dysphoria. I can't stand being female, and I can't stand being seen as female. I'm always avoiding mirrors because I don't want to see my female body. Basically, being a girl is terrible, for me at least.
I want to start hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This will make it much easier for me to pass as male; my voice will drop, I'll lose the feminine curve of my hips, I'll gain muscle easier, and much more.
To start HRT, I need to convince my family.
So please, please sign this if you support me. You don't have to know me. If you want to help a transgender teen, then sign this. And spread it around as much as possible through social media, or whatever you can. I need the community's support, and I know everyone can make it happen.
TL;DR: some of my family doesn't believe I'm transgender. Sign if you support transgender people. Spread this around if possible.
So I live in Palo Alto, and I know the Palo Alto community is really supportive of LGBTQ+ people. I want to say thank you in advance for all the awareness in this community. You're all great people.
