Have you not read the stories of people trying to come out, explaining to their parents what being trans is, the parents google ‘transgender’ and find this ridiculous bullshit? Because it’s happened.
this. i’ve been out for 5 years but my mom was doing more research on what being trans is a little while ago so she could understand me better and unfortunately came across a link with the pronouns and countless gender labels
it was embarrassing as fuck and i had to explain to her that i wasn’t going to end up identifying as a poly genderqueer demigirl or ask her to call me bun or fae and that wanting to transition is solely for my wellbeing and she said it was going to be hard to take me seriously for a long time because of what she saw
Wow it’s almost like when you appropriate being trans so that you can garner some extra special points you’re actually hurting people with dysphoria
Transtrenders are complete morons; they really hurt my image as a transwoman; when my parents did some research on being transgender and the gender dysphoria that was making me try and kill myself. They came up with a bunch of these “glitterqueer” and “demitranslatino” and shit like that; it was not only embarrassing; it really hurt
