For TERFs, it’s a sad day when the object of their sexual desire exercised their agency over their bodies:
So I just found out, through the grapevine, that the girl with whom I fell in love when I was 19, who was the reason I first called myself bi, who was the first person I ever came out to, whom I never had the courage to tell I loved – has now said she’s a transman, and I just – fuck. I can’t believe it. I knew she always felt uncomfortable with her body, and I’d shrug and let it go if it weren’t for the fact that at least two other people in her (my ex-)social circle have recently decided they’re trans as well. It’s such a fucking waste, I swear. She was so – I know this sounds reductionist, and there was so much more to her that I fell in love with – but she was so beautiful, and I can’t believe she’s done this. What an absolute fucking waste.
Sorry guys- you’re the only people I know who might understand how I feel right now.
