Here's a link to an IG post. For those who don't have IG or can't read it right now, lemme sum it up for you.
There are 3 slides in this post. The first is a screenshot of a TikTok user named _ciaraelizabeth; the text on her video states "my Dad is abusive and in 7th grade he came out as trans, and when he did he held a gun to his head and said if we didn't support him he'd shoot himself right there." (gaslighting 101, kids!)
Slides 2 and 3 are screenshots of TikTok users commenting on the video. Not to say how awful and abusive her Dad is, but to tell her off for ~misgendering~, even if he is abusive, because transphobia kills people!!! And also to correct the pronouns this 17 yr old girl used to decsribe her abusive TIM Dad, to she/her/hers.
I couldn't believe it. I lost my shit and dove into the TikTok comments (I have an account for the lols, it's quite a good app if you know how to stay away from the gender nonsense) and started going after the people chastising her. Thankfully, there are an increased number of commenters supporting this girl for not pandering and using female pronouns for her POS Dad. Anyone else who wants to join the fray, more the merrier.
Honestly, this is Gen Z in a nutshell. I GUARANTEE you almost all of the people banging on about pronouns are blue-haired idiots under the age of 25 (obvs not all Gen Z-ers have their heads up their arses when it comes to gender stuff but most seem to).
Also - mods, apologies if I used the wrong circle, I wasn't entirely sure where to put this.
