For the second time, I went in search of some counseling services and specified I wanted a female therapist and got matched with a TiM.
Two separate counseling services: one at a university, one in an app. Both times, they "match you" with the perfect person for you, and you don't exactly get to decline. You can walk away from the counseling services, which is what I did both times.
Both times they asked whether I wanted a Male, Female, or Other.
Both times I chose Female.
Both times, they gave me men.
I am beyond frustrated with this incredibly stupid ideology that asks me to violate my boundaries to make someone else comfortable. And no, I don't want to discuss the intimate workings of my life, especially my sexual history and current (distinctly female) health-related problems with a biological male.
This is the kind of thing that peaked me. I never had and still do not have hatred for any trans-identifying people I have known. But be honest. Call yourself a transwoman, if that is what you are. But please stop trying to "trick" me into seeing you as an actual biological female exactly like me in every single way when we both know that is not what you are. Maybe you think I just don't understand you, or have empathy for you. OK, well, that seems to be how you feel about me. Live your life however you want. Just for the love of god, stop trying to gaslight me.
