How to come out as transgendered?
I am a 27 year old male who is transgendered but I am not really out with it yet. On top of that I am pretty sure I also have aspergers but was never diagnosed. I am currently unemployed and am looking for work. I was telling my dad about the aspergers and how people give me a hard time at jobs and try to pick on me for being awkward. He told me I need to come out of my shell however he and everyone else is probably not going to like that. So, how do I go about handling a situation like this? Should I just be blunt and an asshole when people are being assholes to me? I have a feeling they are not going to understand and are going to try to act like I am soft even tho I am twice the man most of them are. Do I try to stay passive about it and just walk away and ignore them or do I fight back?
