My mom doesn't support my pansexuality and transness

Recommended Posts

BEAN_CHILD

when i came out to my mother as trans she told me that I wasn't because I am attracted to boys. I told her that I like all of the genders and she just went off. she started yelling at me, saying that i was a f*****  and said i was a gross guy who was obsessed with butt sex. she started harassing me, asking me how i like butt sex and how im disgusting. mind you i was only 12 when this happened

I see two parenting fails here. One is that the one and only rule of parenting is: LOVE YOUR CHILDREN. The other is her lack of imagination. There are so many more things that two boys can do together than anal intercourse. I feel a little sorry for your father. Your mother must be awful in bed.

 

I'm sorry you had to deal with that. Especially at twelve. Who starts screaming at their child about that sort of thing? That's just so wrong on so many levels.

 

Big hugs dear! We've got a lot of cases of bad parenting chronicled on this site. You're far from alone.

I imagine they do. Trauma is like that. Bad parenting causes psychological trauma. I won't say "scarred for life," but only because with time and a good therapist, I think you'll be able to work through it.

 

Doing something like that to your child, who expects love and understanding from their parent, is monstrous. The first time your parents break that bond of trust is incredibly traumatic. Especially if it happens when you're younger or if you're sharing something important about yourself. Your mother had an opportunity to bond with you, grow as a person and help you overcome future obstacles in your life. She chose an ignorant and bigoted tirade peppered with personal attacks instead. Parenting. Fail.

 

Big hugs sweetie. I know you need 'em. I've got lots.

Oh my this is absolutely terrible. I am so sorry she acted that way and said those cruel and hurtful things.  Simply unforgivable in my opinion.  
My mother did not react well with my coming out.  She had said flare out she will not accept it and that I was dead to her.  But she did not berate me or my choices.  My mother reacted out of ignorance to what trans is but still refuses to accept me.

That is SO awful! I'm so sorry you had to go through that. But don't shove it down and forget about it. As Jackie said, a good therapist can help you not relive those terrible feelings every time it comes to mind.

 

I have also gone through traumatic things from people I love dearly as a result of coming out. I'm still not healed yet though. I'm about to cry with it even on the outskirts of my memory.😥

I’m with Jackie, time and therapy will help.  It’s truly amazing how cruel some people, that have said they love us, can be. They must not understand what love is, if they can do things like that.  Hang in there everyone and know you’re not alone and there is still a lot of love in the world for each of you. 
 

Oh and also I’m with Jackie on the hugs too.  Hugs for everyone!  Seeing as how I’ve pretended to be a male for 40 years, I have a great stockpile of hugs and have been enjoying giving and receiving them in spades now that I’m not hiding me from the entire world.

Bean_Child's message is all too familiar. One of the first people I told was my mother at around 6 years old, it was a terrible experience. My mother insisted there was something wrong with me, and that I need to confess to one of our parish priest's and to ask God for forgiveness, if I didn't she was going to take me to a doctor and see if I need medication, or brain surgery to correct my mistake. This is my first time learning about hiding "my secret." I quickly learned to lie about my gender dysphoria throughout my life. Years later when I told my sister of my desire to transition, she said she thought I was gay because I liked to wear women's clothes.  

There are so many ignorant and mis informed people about being transgender. Recently, North, or South Dakota (don't remember) passed legislation to make it a crime for doctors to treat transgender minors.  Soon it may grow into punishment to doctor's for treating adult transgender patients.

I am sorry that this happened, but hopefully she can take her head out of her rear end and see that is not the case. It was cruel of her to say those things and I am sure that they are not true. 

 

Just know that you are safe here, no one will judge you :)

      How many times have I been in my knees, begging God to fix me and everything??  Begging.   Five hundred?   How many times have I cursed God, thrown vile swear words at Jesus, God, whoever for not fixing me and the world?,( in my timing and in ways that I could see it) Fifty?   How many times have I asked the name of Jesus, God, and angels to save me and keep my eternal soul? Five?   I love angels and they love me! Sometimes they show this love by interfering.   Do I believe? I say yes, but I must try to do so at times.   Praise the Lord for making me a girl that is becoming a woman!!

      Why do I see through these eyes What dare I stand witness being Will these lessons return Was it worth this pain The endless cycle of suffering Paying the Riverman to cross Might as well just be swimming For I'm already drowning So much can be done And all will pass A student and child Stuck till the light sets at last.

      @Susan R pain levels are very stable. I have been getting these ‘jolts’ Of my nerves waking back up, those have been interesting.  Earlier this afternoon I was experiencing a pretty satisfying tingle and that actually turned out to be the packing trying to come out. It has been the weirdest pain yet .   I can’t wait to experience the new exciting sensations to learn how my body is recovering. I do know that I’ve been luck with almost minimal swelling and only bruising noted to my ‘taint’ area. Currently, just laying in the hotel bed catching up on 90 Day Fiancé with my best friend. Debating a nice Benadryl and Tylenol cocktail later for sleep!  Any questions you can think of, I don’t mind trying to answer based off of my personal experiences! Kylie
    • Susan R
      Good to hear Kylie. Have the pain levels stabilized? Are there any instances where you think, Oh what was that?   I appreciate these updates very much.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      I love this thread, but found it harder to answer than I thought Shay. Possibly because over the years my ex made me choose between my passions and her, and I always chose her. 😨   My biggest passion first and foremost is for my kids and family. 💖 My children are amazing and I love them to bits. I also have 4 sisters fairly close in age and regularly think we are unknowingly starring in some unscripted black comedy due to the almost constant drama in our lives.   Outside of that my position as a Christian minister and the privilege that my faith enables me to help others through some of the best and worst times of their lives.(This is very personal to me, but happy to chat privately if folks are curious about it)   D&D - getting together in person or online and being part of a creative story where almost anything can and will happen. So much fun!   Ultimate frisbee - though I haven't played in over a decade I still deeply love the sport and throwing a disc around with my friends. I never go anywhere without a disc in the car, just in case...   Swimming - Whether it's in the sea, a river, or a loch I cannot wait to get wet once I discover somewhere with open water. It may be cold when you dive in, but once you're acclimatised nothing beats it for me and I always feel amazing afterwards.   At the bottom I would actually place my most common hobbies: gaming, reading and binge watching films, TV and YT Series - I do them for escape and some introverted social connection but am not really passionate about them specifically but I certainly wouldn't want my life without them.

      Thanks all! Been a pretty decent day. Packing decided it wants to start coming out. So a little extra reinforcement and all is well. I think my surgical team gets a kick out of my concerns, all have been benign.    Going to enjoy a good meal tonight and sleep up for tomorrow. Pretty exhausted today!    ❤️

      @Tori M did you see the guy and his wife on CBS Sunday Morning who photographs and paints birds. You are probably familiar with him. I appreciate your passion. And love the photo you posted.
    • Tori M
      I think some of you already know my fascination with nature, but my main passion now is birds.  Not just feeding or watching them, but "chasing" them and, most interesting, learning as much as I can about their lives.  This started in 2014 and at one point I was spending almost every waking moment watching, reading or chasing them.  Chasing means traveling miles and hours to catch sight of a rarity or exploring environs different than our own neighborhood to find different species.  Lately, I am less obsessed and haven't traveled as much but it's not unusual for me to load up the car with binoculars, scopes and cameras and spend the whole day driving around looking for great sightings. In the east, birding is largely a summer sport but to my total surprise, here on the west coast it's a year-round venture.  Yes, the birds fly south, but there's a whole different batch that summer in Canada and the Arctic that also fly south.... to here!  So, in the summertime, birding is about migrating songbirds, but in the winter there are millions of waterfowl and sparrows here.  It's a funtastic hobby and I'm always [too] eager to answer questions and educate, lol.  I'm not an expert but I've crammed a lot of learning into a few short years.   Sandhill crane w/cygnet (not my photo) Sandhill cranes have been around for at least 2.5 million years

      If my Chautauqua Series is able to?start up again after Clovis there is a girl who plans to do a program on the American home appliances from the 1950s 1960s and 1970s. For those not familiar?with Chautauquas they are first person living history where the presenter is usually a well known person and you learn so much more about that person. This girl would be a generic housewife. We have had usually 2 a month every month for 14 years until covid came. We do it as a donation basis and have musicians open with period music. We have a wide range of people from George Washington to robin Williams Tecumseh to sacagawea. Jesse James to rosemary Clooney carry nation to general Dwight eisenhower Beethoven to solar schlindler Laura singles wilder to Walt Whitman. Sorry I miss these shows they are fun and enjoyable.

      I find that an unusual but very intriguing hobby!  The first time I heard of it was a boy guesting on a TV talk show (was it Ellen?  Leno??).  They're interesting machines that transformed the American home and housework.  I once sold Rainbows and got to see one of the very early models.... all steel and weighed a TON.  No more nerdy than my fascination with bridges, lol❣️
