Happy Father's Day!
I offer this wish, not only to those of you who are male parents in the traditional sense, but also to any of you who have taught your child, or any young person, an important life lesson or skill.
And I offer it especially to all of you trans women who helped to raise children while you were still living as men. You also were husbands (or partners) to the biological or adoptive mothers of your children. I commend you for all of the strength you have in holding yourselves, your marriages and your families together. Now I hope that you can enjoy loving, supportive relationships with the people you married and the ones you helped to bring into this world.
If you no longer have relationships with those people, I hope you will find others that will give you and share the love you deserve.
Happy Father's Day to all!
