I am getting forced out of my house soon because of being gay and transgender.
Mum: “You either need to stop acting like a boy and be a girl, or get out. You are ruining your little sister’s life with your choices. A six-year-old cannot go around and say, ‘I have a two brothers,…

“I don’t mean to burden you with my non-problems. I know you’re busy.”
I texted that last night to someone, as I stood on the verge of tears, the verge of smashing plates, and the verge of curling up in the fetal position for a while. I was about a minute away from a full-on hormonal breakdown, and I was apologizing for being an inconvenience. For being a burden. Because let’s be real, what I really meant was I’m sorry I’m having feelings.
In the wake of many really important posts that have been circulating the blogosphere lately about gaslighting and being a Crazy Girlfriend ™, I’ve come to realize that while I faced my fair share of gaslighting in the past, the biggest perpetrator of shitting all over my feelings is me. So often I’m so consumed with not making waves that I instead apologize for having any feelings at all.
