Transgender communities around the world face a number of difficulties and obstacles. Besides the social and cultural pressures that some traditions impose upon them, there's also the internal struggle within the individuals themselves, let alone the transition period, be it surgical or otherwise.

However, the world has its ways of showing some positivity on the matter, thus restoring our faith in humanity. A number of gender transition stories have begun to surface on Twitter with people sharing how well their family, friends, and complete strangers took their decision to switch genders. Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the most wholesome stories for you to read below.

"What do you go by now" is a good one. Simple, to the point, and bonus points that it probably won't be offensive if there actually wasn't any transition.

Hating someone because a book told you to is the most ridiculous thing possible.

I think it's great that the staff member didn't just use her deadname and not bother to say anything. She acknowledged that she had to use the dead name but made sure to let her know she didn't recognise it as her *real* name

My favorite book was written for someone who transitioned and now I can't find nothing with the dead name, so I don't know if he still writes :(

Oddly enough, complete indifference is the proper reaction.
