Synopsis Edit

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.

Transcript Edit

Gavin Headshot
I have to admit I'm surprised you remembered all that.
Rain headshot
Believe me when I say you were my only friend at one time, and this made you an important person in my life.
Rain headshot
Despite this, I still couldn't tell you about me back then and rsik losing it all.
Rain headshot
I know. You say you'd have wanted to help. But let's be realistic. What could you have done?
Rain headshot
I mean, just a few minutes ago - mere hours after we started talking again - you've already basically said I was a burden.
Gavin Headshot
Well.. I, uh...
Rain headshot
But you're right. It IS a burden. Especially for me!
Gavin Headshot
For you? I don't understand.
Gavin Headshot
Isn't this what you want?
Rain headshot
All I want is to be normal.
Rain headshot
But in order to be normal, this is what I have to do, no matter how much of a nuisance it is.
