Is it wrong that I get upset and “triggered” whenever I read about trans people liking the fact they’ve transitioned? Not because I’m transphobic, far from it, but from the fact that I currently can’t do anything about my female body, no HRT, no acknowledgement of my gender identity, not even wearing clothes that match my identity.

I’m scared that by the time I transition, I still won’t see myself as my preferred gender, because when I have top surgery, I’ll have scars which reminds me that I wasn’t born as who I want to be, and it will always bring me down, no matter if I had top and bottom surgery. Now this isn’t to say people who don’t have surgeries aren’t the people they are, but this concerns myself and my eternal anxiety.

I can’t testify when it comes to Hollywood movies, but growing up, as a watcher of crappy kid sitcoms, I can say there was a sexualization. Now, this obviously wasn’t noticeable as a kid, but seeing it now, years later, it’s pretty disturbing. There were a lot of dirty jokes, which isn’t unusual, but it’s disturbing coming from the child actors themselves. Just look at these examples.

Now maybe I’m reading too much into things. I honestly hope I am being too sensitive. But if not, it’s very damning.

This will be great for me. I see and hear people constantly. In the past four years, I can’t think of one instant where They (that’s what I call them,) haven’t been there. And I mean everywhere. Bedroom, bathroom, everywhere. I hate it. It’s the reason why I became depressed and suicidal. I felt that way because at least in death, I would finally have a place where I didn’t see Them, although I fear that even there, I can’t escape Them.

You're dragging this out and causing all of this drama, trying to get rid of /u/boringskip as mod. Just end this mess! We're a website of communists and anarchists so, of course, we're bound to disagree. But you're going too far and making ad hominem attacks against /u/sudo and /u/ShiningWing. I'm not saying this as a bootlicker or a communist, I'm saying this as an anarchist, one who just wants everyone to work together. Please, just stop this drama!

Didn’t people say that the atrocities in Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, extermination camps, wasn’t true? That it was impossible for someone to be that cruel. That’s why I wouldn’t assume the stories about imprisoning generations at a time and other awful things aren’t true. Besides, what would the refugees from the camps gain from lying about the conditions?

Why can’t we just end this fight? It’s stupid, and we’re only causing rifts and infighting amongst ourselves. It’s been two days. Just put this under the bridge. I won’t hold what you said against me, and neither shall I hold it against you.

Also, about my comments earlier: I shouldn’t have compared you to p_k, I admit that. I’m sorry for saying that, I really am.

I can sympathize with her. I had to act masculine for my parents to even consider the idea of transition, but even then, it didn’t work, as you can see from my earlier posts. If it wasn’t for this site, I probably would’ve lived the rest of my life as a cis woman, not knowing why I was upset, but struggling through anyway. (In case you’re wondering, I identify as a genderfluid non binary, but I currently live as a teenage girl because of parents.)
