Family First: Some people have that mantra drilled into their heads from a young age, and the man who wrote this story on Reddit’s “Am I the *******?” page sounds like he certainly did.

But did he do something wrong?

Read his story below and see what you think.

“My brother recently came to live with me. It was a huge shock at first, my brother (Will, 17) is female to male.

I (M34) had no idea he was questioning his gender, he always seemed completely happy as a girl, you know, he was very feminine during his presentation and all.

The big news about his brother upset his family.

It turned out that he came to our parents after getting his hair cut, and they didn’t approve of it at all.

From what he told me, he didn’t really get kicked out, it just started to become unbearable. They called him ‘Myla’ in every sentence they said (just to annoy him, I guess), mom kept booking him in for appointments to get hair extensions and his eyelashes done, our dad wouldn’t let him wear the male uniform until sixth grade shape and so on.

It got so bad that he literally took the train from the south to the north to ask if he could live with me. Of course I said yes. The house is large enough for him to live there, there are four bedrooms and an attic room.

His girlfriend is having a hard time with this.

My girlfriend (Nico, 32) was annoyed when she found out. We discussed her moving in before Will came and now she tells me she won’t move in until Will leaves.

I explained to her that Will is not a child that we need to supervise all the time, that if anything he is the one who makes the place more livable (he is very eager to add to the decor of the house and so on, and also to be better than me at cleaning.), and that the house is big enough that you still have privacy even with him around.

Nico has argued that it’s not really “ours” if Will is always there, that we won’t be able to try to get pregnant, that she isn’t willing to live with a “hormonal and rebellious” teenager, and that she’s downright uncomfortable feels like Will is near her and lives with her and her son (M 10) in the same house.

He stood his ground.

Ultimately, I told her that my loyalty is to my little brother, who is homeless and vulnerable, unlike the adult woman with a well-paying job and her own home.

She called my mom to complain about it and she said I was wrong for putting Will first, and Will himself said he doesn’t want to “cause problems” in my relationship.

Family first!

I don’t know if these two are in it for the long haul…
