Abuse As A Trans Person
Erasing the personal history of a trans person
Makes it really easy to manipulate them.
It would be so easy to be abused
As a trans person.
I know that personally
As a teenage lesbian
I was depressed, anxious, lonely
And unable to relax.
My first serious relationship
Was very abusive.
When I told people about it
I got two responses—
No it wasn’t — and
What did you expect.
This is the same for all people
Trans people have more at stake
For others to criticize and critique
When you open yourself up
To others opinions of your gender identity
You often get more than you bargained for—
More than anyone else has to deal with.
It’s for this reason that
Trans issues need more respect.
