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.

The "Good" Abuser [tw: abuse]

When a child is punished for their honesty, they begin to lie.
One of the most ludicrous things parents say is “Why aren’t you more grateful to us for feeding, clothing, and sheltering you?!”It’s because you’re the parent. You have a duty to feed, clothe, and shelter your children. You’re not doing them a favor by making sure they don’t starve. You’re fulfillin...
