OP, you sound a lot like my stepmother. Bear in mind, I'm an atheist bordering on antitheism. When I came out as a transwoman to her and my dad a couple weeks ago, she didn't reject me; she didn't merely tolerate me; she accepted me for who I am just as much as she always has. She has the capacity to turn the same scriptures that are often used against the LGBT community around and apply them in a way that promotes acceptance and unconditional love in the manner that many Christians talk but so few walk.

Basically her thought on it is, God doesn't make mistakes, but he does give people trials. To her, this is a trial for me to overcome, and not in the manner of suppressing my inner girl and being more manly, but in the way of casting off the false masculinity that has plagued my life and being the girl I was always meant to be. At least, that's what I read into it LOL
