So I have a friend who I found out was born female, but is now male. Are there any things I should really expect? Like I know I'll get some people who support it and who don't, but that won't bother me because my friend I'll call him Kevin for privacy reasons has been one of my best friends for a long time and I have feelings. Now I don't know if Kevin also has feelings for me, but in the event he would then I'd like to be prepared.
And before people start saying "Maybe he's gay" or something, Kevin is bi and has stated this before to people. And before people say anything, to me a transgender person is who they say they are, and if someone says they are male even before and after transition then I fully respect that and call them whatever they desire to be called. So, if people are telling me another thing, just know I support people who feel like they're another gender.
Maybe some of you, have experience with this yourselves, maybe know some people that are or just have a lot of knowledge on the situation. All I knows is, it can be tough for some people going through this because maybe their families aren't supportive or other things and I would like as much advice as possible.

1. There is no such thing as changing sex. One can dress differently. One can medically and surgically alter one's appearance. But one cannot change one's chromosomes which define gender.
2. If you are so screwed up in the head to knowingly date a girl who pretends to be a guy when you are not gay, then there is no amount of advice that can help you.17
