"Okay, lemme let you on on something here. Parent’s aren’t gonna understand a lot of stuff, and that’s bound to happen. Parents aren’t your friends, they don’t understand a lot of things about you, they won’t completely understand how you work and they won’t understand your perception on a lot of things. But you know what? That’s gonna happen."
"You have to be expecting that kind of thing because they don’t know. They don’t know what you’re going through. They don’t know what it’s like to stand out side the toilets and have to be scared shitless of the possibility getting bashed within an inch of your life. They don’t know what it’s like to be seriously hurt when people throw around words like "she-male" and "transvestite" in every day speech. They don’t fucking know how it feels to have to see how ignorant and insensitive people can be because you apparently sound or look or act like ‘the opposite gender’"
"And that shit’s fucked, okay? No one in this day and age should have to put up with this. But it happens and we have to adapt. You learn to live with all this fucked up shit that gets thrown at you on a daily basis. And this is the cruelest and most fucked up shit, that you have to get used to being harassed and have insults and slurs thrown at our faces constantly and daily. Its horrible and unfair and fucked up in so many goddamn ways its not funny.
Now I don’t know your parents, grey-face, but they need to have trust in you that you know this is what’s right. Pull them up on comments that they make, make sure they use proper pronouns, make your home a safe place for you. Parents are supposed to be supportive and do the right thing by you. Talk to them, make them understand, talk them through the things they need to know. If, still, they aren’t taking it well, then fuck them. How dare they not support their child in the time where support and comfort and acceptance is needed most. How dare they treat their child in a way that damages them to the point where they don’t feel like they can even look at their parents without this goddamn fucking fear.”
"Please just know that you are not fucking alone in this. You are never alone. Please remember that."
Mun: ((Okay I cried when I replied to this because it really hit me hard and close to home, I recognise and understand the fact that because I identify somedays as female that I am in a more privileged position, but the shit I have gotten from ‘friends’ and my family on the days I identify as male, or even when I’m just wearing my binder is some of the most horrible and painful things to have to deal with on a day to day basis. I’ve been told to “get a sex change already” and to “start being a girl for once in your life, that’s what you are, arent you?” Please please please understand anon that there are people that are here to listen and to talk to you, and there are groups around that will support you and will help you with your parent issue. Google and check them out, because I guarantee they’d be 100% willing to help.))
