Almost 23 months on T
For 2 months I worked in America. I was the happiest I can ever remember being.
Apart from a small handful of people, nobody knew that I was trans. For the first few weeks I didn’t even know that ANYONE knew.
I was treated 100% as who I am now. Not a single person mis-gendered me at anytime. I was finally living the life I should of always had.
Within 15 minutes of walking back into my house I wanted to break down and cry. This is not my home, this isn’t where I belong. In the US I had unconditional acceptance and support and I finally found a place where I belonged.
Roll on to not even 2 full weeks of being back in the UK and my mother outing me to my brothers new girlfriend all because she couldn’t gender me right….
It’s hard for our parents. I know this, and I have tried my hardest to be patient and accepting of the mistakes but just over 2 years and still being mis-gendered. Still being put in awkward and uncomfortable situations where I am outed. When will this stop?
I raised the issue with her privately after the incident and it was “oh well, what’s done is done.” How patient do I have to be? How tolerant of her discomfort do I have to be?
When my sister publicly refers to me as “IT” and outs me on social media describing what a monster I am and my mother stands by because she can’t upset her daughter. When my own mother tells me that, “He is a real man, something you’ll never be.”
How long do I have to swallow that bile back down and take the high ground?
I’m sorry my existence is so horrible for you. I didn’t choose to be born and I certainly didn’t choose to be born like this. Being trans is not a choice. Being an Asshole towards a trans person is a choice.
Just remember that one day when you are old and frail and in need of help exactly which child do you think it will be wiping your ass? I guarantee it won’t be any of my siblings.
