My parents used to blurt it out as soon as it was apparent I needed to hang up—urgently, as though afraid I might forget. Now they don’t say it unless I do first, and their voices are pinched with vague concern.
This is stupid. My brothers, sisters, and siblings are killed every day for being what we are. They are raped and beaten, deprived of their humanity. My pain is that my parents—who support me in my identity—have changed their tone of voice.
Get a grip and harden the fuck up, kid.
Hey. This is not a contest. Other people experiencing violence doesn’t mean that you experiencing a withdrawing from your family of origin doesn’t suck.
Truth. Hurt is hurt, and allowing people to speak theirs - yours - is fine. You aren’t running anyone else over by saying this, either. We want a world where this is the bad stuff we trans folk deal with, instead of rapes, beatings, dehumanization, and the rest. That doesn’t mean pretending being treated like this is okay.
if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you
