Okay so imagine that a mother gives birth to a baby boy. And imagine that the mother really wanted a girl instead. So the mother decides to raise the child as a girl. She buys pink clothes, little dresses, hair pins, scolds the child when he “doesn’t act ladylike” etc etc etc.

Most people would see this as child abuse. And they would be right.

But what if I told you that this happens every single fucking day. Children who are not boys are forced to act like boys, and children who are not girls are forced to act like girls.

This is what it’s like growing up transgender in a household with a family that does not accept you.

“Conversion therapy” is child abuse. There is no gray area. There is no wiggle room. The fuckers who practice it are abusers. The fuckers who send their children off to be “converted” are abusers. Assholes who say “I wouldn’t do it, but that’s their right as...
