    I would think that even for someone in their 60s coming out as their internal mental gender is kind of like being a teenager again.

    Also - honestly you let this go on too long.. Two weeks of ignoring you? Not acceptable in the slightest and should have been dealt with the first time you were left out of a meeting.
