Oh my goodness, Lisa, I just read your story and it's...so touching.

How I wish for such acceptance!Β  I can only imagine and fantasise...

My mum made some rather trans-unfriendly remarks when I was at dinner with them this evening so I thought...maybe I'll not share...

Love,

Grace

A very beautiful story well told. For several years my Mum had a really good relationship with Faye. We shopped, met for lunch and she would visit my apartment , many a time when I was out at work I would return to find she had dropped by and tidied up for her β€˜Daughter’, not that it was untidy, but the β€˜Daughter’ was never going to match her mother.

My brother found out and informed my father, Mum explained she couldn’t meet up anymore, a year later she passed away, my father and brother within three more years.

So Lisa treasure you mum, store the memories and be thankful for all you have with her.

Faye x

Sadly, the β€œWhat did I do wrong?” thing is so prevalent. The problem is that people believe that we are all born cisgender and heterosexual, so something has to happen in order to change that.

BS.

I anyone has ever read coming out stories by gay or trans people, a common thread is that they KNEW they were different in some way, compared to their peers. They didn’t understand what is was and had no vocabulary for it, but they KNEW they were not like the other kids.

So, at single digit ages, what could have happened to them?

The answer is NOTHING. They came that way. Think about this. Conversion therapy doesn’t work, so then we ask the question: Why doesn’t it work?

It doesn’t work because you can’t change something that is innate to humans. Several years ago, a group of people who founded, led or worked in ex-gay conversion therapy organizations published an open letter. They realized that the β€œtherapy” doesn’t work and that more harm than good was caused.

https://bornperfect.org/former-ex-gay-leaders/

An excerpt from that text:

”We know first-hand the terrible emotional and spiritual damage it can cause, especially for LGBT youth. We once believed that there was something morally wrong and psychologically β€œbroken” about being LGBT. We know better now. We once believed that sexual orientation or gender identity were somehow chosen or could be changed. We know better now. We once thought it was impossible to embrace our sexual orientation or sexual identity as an intrinsic, healthy part of who we are and who we were created to be. We know better now.”

thank you dear

yet we still hope those who said they would love n support us through anything, don't really mean it when they declare well anything but that...you're a monster n freak n deserve evil n pain until you repent..it still hurts n someday, it's hard ti block it out..but you know this, as well as this is part of why we kill ourselves so often.

that's why Lisa lovely bonding with her mom is soo so touching n lovely. good for them πŸ˜€

thank you ladies

hugs
