I'm so tired

I’m tired of transphobia. I’m sick of seeing all these people telling me that I’m crazy or a groomer or a list of other things just because I’m trans. I’m tired of all the bills getting passed against my very existence.

I’m tired of being trans. I fight every day and I just keep going and hoping that things will get better. I’m tired of being scared to be out or be myself.

I’m so scared about people finding out that I’m trans but I’m also so damn tired of being in the closet. I’m so scared that I’ll get hurt and it honestly makes me so damn paranoid.

I’m just so tired of feeling like it’s not going to get better


You being you is making a difference in the world.

I hope that one day you will feel that pride.

Honestly I was feeling proud of myself not long ago. But lately I almost wish I could just stop being trans.

There’s always been hateful people but lately they’re just so loud. And it scares me.

I love being nonbinary and I want to nurture that because it makes me happy and makes me feel more comfortable in my own skin.

But lately I find myself wondering if people I know will turn on me because of it. Or when I go out in public if someone will hurt me because of it. I don’t know if I’m just delusional about that but it scares me a lot.

I understand it is hard. Maybe one day you can write a story or book about your struggles. No one is interested in reading other’s stories of success and fame. But having struggles makes you human and I think some people would be interested in reading that.

Chin up.

I had no idea what “groomer” meant.
Just looked it up online.

So sorry about your struggles!

What country do you live in?

Over here, society isn’t ready yet for accepting transgender people. They think poorly of, and distrust the few trans who come out of the closet.

I’m open-minded, don’t care about your skin color, sexual orientation, assumed gender, religion or political views etc. so long as you’re a generally good person.

Having to waste so much energy just to hide who you are and what you feel is regrettable.

I live in the USA which honestly has been getting scarier and scarier for people like me lately. Some states are better than others but a lot of states are becoming actively hostile.

There’s a lot of anti-trans bills being passed and it’s scary.

There’s a lot of hateful talk in my country about us being degenerates and perverts who want to harm children. And recently it got worse because there was a shooter who was trans and now there are people saying that we are militant and dangerous. None of which is true

It was also trans day of visibility which although the community is very supportive the opposition used it to fuel more hate.

We just want to live and be happy in our bodies. I just want to live my life in peace.

As does every sane man.

Lots of hate in this world, much of which is due to ignorance and unwillingness to listen and understand each other. Too many people see things in black and white, good and evil (and boy, these folks see evil everywhere :pensive:)…
