The Original Poster (OP) is a 21-year-old transgender woman who is planning to start transitioning. This is her story about her family’s lack of support.
She Came Out
OP came out to her mother about two years ago, but she didn’t take it kindly.
Her Mother Called Her a Sinner
Her mother eventually referred to OP as a sinner and dragged her into therapy treatment, where OP merely pretended to be “cured of the gay.”
She Stayed With Her Grandparents
OP stayed with her grandparents while attending college for the following few years.
She Couldn’t Take It Anymore
However, as the pressure to conform to traditional gender norms and her mother’s expectations mounted, she finally reached a breaking point in April.
Her mother sent her a text demanding that she get a haircut, dress more manly, and care more about her appearance, or be forced to live with her again and work on her farm.
This message was the last straw, and she decided to come out to her mother once more.
She Came Out Again
Even though her mother didn’t yell as much as she did the previous time, she still labeled OP a sinner and said that “God doesn’t make mistakes.”
She Isn’t Religious
OP doesn’t really believe in religion, but she didn’t say that to her mother and didn’t intend to.
Her mother also criticized her for asking her to accept her, stating that it was “rude” to ask her to put aside her beliefs.
She Came Out to Her Father Too
Her mother also informed OP that she needed to tell her father about her identity, which she did a week later.
Her mother assured OP that she wouldn’t tell her father, but that she had to do it as quickly as possible.
He Didn’t Accept Her Either
Although OP’s father didn’t accept her either, he stated that everyone had their opinions and choices.
However, he revealed that her mother had already told him before OP had the chance to.
Things Only Get Worse
Things took a turn when OP’s grandma recognized that OP had significantly altered her appearance to become more “feminine.”
Her Grandmother Blames Her Friends
She launched into a tirade, stating that her generation was “very impressionable” and that OP’s friend’s gay lifestyle was “tempting her to sin.”
Not “Real Christians”
She even criticized OP’s father, calling him a failure and stating that his side of the family were not “real Christians.”
All of these comments deeply hurt OP, and she decided to leave that night.
She Moved Back
She moved back in with her parents, hoping to escape the toxicity of her mother’s side of the family.
However, OP’s mother wanted to discuss what the grandmother said to OP.
She Told Her It’s Not a Choice
But no matter what her mother said, OP insisted that she chose to be transgender. She informed her that choosing to be who you are is not a choice.
However, her mother bragged about how OP will never be a woman and how evil had corrupted OP.
She Had a Breakdown
OP reached her breaking point and told her mother that her entire side of the family was toxic and that she couldn’t take it anymore.
Her mother blamed her and stated that OP had broken her heart.
The Community Supported Her
Now OP is trying to figure out how to get a roommate so that she can leave the toxic environment.
OP took to Reddit to ask whether she was wrong for lashing out at her mother. Redditors sided with OP and said that she was not wrong and that her mother is very toxic.
