    I'll tell them to stop being weird and be normal. I'm not going to accept that abhorrent lifestyle by any means
    Then they deserve a million times better than you.

    My reaction would be to have a look at my parenting, and to see what I had done wrong.

    I'd listen to them. It doesn't make them a different person, it just means that they are able to be comfortable with who they are. I'd be grateful that they didn't have to hide it from me anymore, and would offer to support them if that's what they want.

    I have faith.
    So you have more faith in a God that may or may not be real, than you do in your own son? Thats kind of sad really.

    I'll never understand what it means to "feel like the opposite gender". But just because I don't understand it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist

    If he's felt like that from birth till about age 14, then I'd support. If however at age 16 he comes at me like "I've felt like a woman/bigender/genderqueer/agender for the past 6 months now" then... no, probably not.

    You're even more deluded if you think God doesn't exist and that people actually think that they are women when they are men. They're just ****ed up

    I would do anything I can to support my child and love them regardless.

    IMHO if you wouldn't support your child or you would disown your child if they're were to come out as LGBT you shouldn't have a child, as a parent is supposed to love and support their child no matter what.

    So just because someone's disagrees with your opinion they should be destroyed. Not far right authoritarian at all

    I'd be concerned that they'd been going through such a *difficult time and would do what I could do to help them through it. Nothing else.

    It isn't an opinion - you simply cannot treat people that way. It's completely inhumane. You'd go out of your way to cause harm to your child, because you have an opinion and they don't meet your perfect model. You're sick.
