>> Thank you for your response, and we're sorry for taking so long to incorporate your feedback. <<

I'm glad I could help.

>> You are correct that it's possible to still be confused about one's gender after coming out as trans; I'm just trying to dispel the stereotype that coming out as trans is a process of becoming *less* sure of oneself (led astray by trans activists recruiting them into our lifestyle!) as opposed to *more* sure. <<

Depends on the stage. The overall trend for someone exploring their sex/gender is to become more aware and confident. The hazard, and the part that unscrupulous people take advantage of, is that it's very easy to open the gate too soon and still be in the seriously confused stage while trying to come out. It can look like something it's really not.

This is why I coach people in Paganism that it's advisable to wait several months to a year while they explore before telling other people. That allows time to gain knowledge and stability before trying to explain a very complex concept to people who usually know nothing about it. If you urgently need to tell people for practical reasons, you can try going sooner, but otherwise it's usually safer and saner to wait a bit.

>> I tried to edit it a little to reflect that, and I am okay with suggestions for how else to do so. <<

Cool.
