Trans people be like
“I’ve always felt something was wrong,
I’ve always wished I was being treated as
Another gender, another sex, I wish I was
Respected for who I am—
It’s psychologically unhealthy for me to
Continue to deny my true self.”
Transphobic people be like
“Well— you’re the way you are and
That’s that. Trying to change that is
Delusional, accept your biological reality.
It’s psychologically and physically unhealthy to transition and honestly
You must be sick in the head”
And somehow trans people are supposed to be understanding
Of their bigotry, while they give absolutely
No effort to accept our reality.
Not to mention, in order to be transgender
You have to accept your biological reality.
The intention is the issue.
People who are convinced
They are giving you the best advice
Will come down as hard as they like.
They don’t understand, they won’t try, and
They’re willing to fight.
Unfortunately it is common to be a
Hater, no matter how common, pedestrian and
Psychologically unhealthy hatred is.
The fear, loathing, paranoia and misinformation about trans people in the media
Is psychologically unhealthy for everyone,
Even the haters.
Realizing the stress they have that
I don’t makes me calmer than I’ve been in
Years. Peaceful resolve.
