a 17 year old transgender boy, who started his transition earlier this year, has killed himself. his mother said, in an interview, “she’s my daughter, she’ll always be my daughter." (source)
and cis ppl wonder why we hate them smh
fuck you fuck you fuCKING CIS PEOPLE
From the article:
His mother Kristine Moscatel, who had attempted to support his transition, said: “She’s (sic) my daughter, she’ll always be my daughter.
“We were trying to accept and we never said, ‘No, you can’t be a boy’.”
His father Rich Moscatel added: “She (sic) did a really good job of masking her depression in front of the people that she loved.
“We’re still kicking ourselves as to what was the straw that broke the camel’s back. She was dealing with a lot of pressures.”
Gee I wonder why he kept it hidden
gee I wonder what sort of pressures wore him down
gee we just don’t know
can we please raise the next generation to care for their children even when they don’t know or understand what their kids are going through
when all you want is for your favorite character to be happy but all they get to be is dead
The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.
Simple and Clean is truly magical because never before has a song made me so emotional while making the least amount of sense imaginable
do you ever have second-hand obsessions
like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend
I need to find the best way to tell my mom to accept when I say no. I don’t need to give five reasons for it to be accepted, I don’t need to say no multiple times. I need to be able to say “no, that’s not what I want” and not get a lecture on how unappreciative I am and what better ways I could have worded my reasoning.
