I find it somewhat bemusing that I never reached this point of logic while I was transitioning. Like seriously, it didn't matter what the world did, I was GOING TO BE ME DAMMIT. So why be so worried about everything else? What is there to gain from it, right?

* I began questioning my gender goals and the need to do something in about 2002, and early on, like about 2004 when I went out in public dressed for the first time as my correct gender of an adult female, I reached this point in my 'transition', similar to what Vic is pointing out to Annie.

I think we all seek approval of those around us but if that doesn't happen, we can either sink or just say F*** it. Growing up, being teen - it happens for cis folk too, but usually in ways that are tolerated by society and there's the difference.
People at Annie's age are like seedlings, trying desperately to put down roots: if you keep getting pulled up, then you can't grow as a person. Annie wants to please everyone right now: Vic, Sophie, Jamie so apart from the risk of upsetting each of them, she needs to have the confidence in herself and realise they will love her all the more for it.
In theory. Easy to talk huh?

Vic's comments also ring true for many 'conventional' couples - get to know each other first, go on dates, kiss and cuddle, maybe even sleep together (as in get into the same bed, fall asleep, wake up several hours later, get out of bed) and don't factor 'plug and socket' into the equation.

All of that can be done by all permutations of relationship (M / F / M2F / F2M / Other <==> M / F / M2F / F2M / Other) without needing to do any 'bedroom aerobics'.

If more couples thought like that, maybe governments wouldn't get into such a panic over the teenage pregnancy rate...
