I've peaked my parents

I've been talking to my parents (~70) for a few weeks about this community. They had NO idea about trans women, had never heard the slur TERF and had no idea about the erasure of lesbians (am lesbian). Obv didn't want to tell them about "girl dick", that's a bit much.

Anyway, to say they were shocked is under-selling it.

They had read an article in the newspaper about "chest feeding" and were so shocked that they thought it must be a prank. I told them about the Sydney rockpools and my Dad particularly was furious.

All of us here are are peaked - how do we reach out to others? Without scaring them off?

I'm in Australia and going to bed soon, so might not be able to reply for a while. Thank you for listening x
