With the issues I have with Buck Angel, one thing that stood out to me in her group chat with Mars and Scott on YouTube was she pointed out that all these kids wanting to transition don't stop and think that their parents are grieving the loss of the child they thought they knew. Exactly. And the emotional abuse of being treated like you're an awful person for knowing your child's sex and having given them a name. I'm dealing with my daughter thinking she's nonbinary and until I put my foot down in an email (responding to her complaining that I still wasn't toeing the line enough -- I did go along with her pronouns at first because she has major anxiety this year and isn't totally stable) and said I wasn't going to be gaslighted anymore, I was hearing all kinds of crap. She's named after her great-great grandmother, a woman much beloved in her father's maternal line, and up until the past year she never had a problem with it and actually found her name fascinating (it's pretty unusual for nowadays). Now? "I'm not Grandma." Oh no shit, kid. Do you think every man in the United States named John Smith is actually the same person as all the other ones? But it's stuff like that, and I've emotionally shut down a LOT because I can't take it. Which doesn't help the situation. She's in therapy and both the therapist and kid's regular doc at her last appointment asked me if I was OK and needed to talk about anything and I... can't. I just can't, because I don't trust any of them. But please do tell me how oppressed you are because I won't call you the name of an inanimate object in acknowledging that you're sexless, my child. Do go on.

Hugs.

I thought the kids were hard when they were young.

It takes a village an our village is now full of idiots and charlatans

I'm sorry that this is happening to you. I wish you luck and the strength to keep the relationship with your child together until this gender cult is someday a distant memory.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this with your daughter—because she’s still your daughter even though she’s rejecting being a girl and the name you gave her. As a teacher I worry for this generation and hope this trend will eventually pass. Unfortunately there will be kids who suffer after taking the hormones and having body-altering surgeries.

What they haven't pictured is that it was the trans person wielding the knife and causing all the damage to them both.

Wait...is this actually something a TRA made? And they chose a neckbeard to represent themselves as a trans person? Fantastic.

I think it is a meme blank that they put their own captions under. Otherwise it would have an anime girl.

This is an edited incel cartoon. They're actually comparing themselves to incels.

That's true! Just like how men can't understand what it's like to be a woman, and women can't understand what it's like to be a man! This is why we should have our own separate spaces.

Because obviously only trans people are the ones who are truly suffering in this world/s

That's very true. Because women and transwomen are not the same thing as each other, we cannot fully understand each other's pain
