Author Notes Edit
Here’s a fun fact that a lot of folks don’t realize - or at least, won’t accept - about transgendered people: for most of us, if we could just NOT be transgendered, we would. Although I hesitate to call it an entirely horrible experience in every way, it IS painful, troublesome, lonely and just generally unfortunate to have to be like this.
I’ve heard a lot of cisgendered people who seem to insist that we can just turn it off and stop being transgendered at any time (not much different from the argument that “being gay is a choice” really). But if someone’s never been in a situation like that or had such feelings, how can they make a claim like that and call it fact?
I mean, you wouldn’t trust someone’s opinion on a movie if they never saw the movie, right?
Just some food for thought, I suppose.
I have to admit I'm surprised you remembered all that.
Believe me when I say you were my only friend at one time, and this made you an important person in my life.
Despite this, I still couldn't tell you about me back then and rsik losing it all.
I know. You say you'd have wanted to help. But let's be realistic. What could you have done?
I mean, just a few minutes ago - mere hours after we started talking again - you've already basically said I was a burden.
Well.. I, uh...
But you're right. It IS a burden. Especially for me!
For you? I don't understand.
Isn't this what you want?
All I want is to be normal.
But in order to be normal, this is what I have to do, no matter how much of a nuisance it is.
