So this happened today... Among a lot of other things 
Some of the things I gave up, I miss beyond measure but what I've gained in the process I value more than my life.

So... I stayed silent for a while, but I can't anymore. Seeing what a Christian home and a Christian therapist did to this poor girl, it was akin to torture really. She did nothing wrong beyond being born with a medical complication. Unfortunately it's a medical complication that a close minded religious society (including her own parents) have INCORRECTLY labeled as 'wrong' and 'against God', needing repair and repression.

It's sickening, angers me, and takes the heart of me to have seen this happen. Folks, don't indoctrinate your kids, love them. Don't suppress someone, support them. Who Leelah was, was never her 'choice' it was her albatross. That no one would help her carry it is our failure.

If someone around you is Trans? When they tell you, and accept them, love them for who they are.  Instead of reacting with "how this will reflect on me?", realize for that person to have gotten to a place where they're expressing themselves took a great deal of heartache, sacrifice, loneliness and courage.  Respect their struggle and do what any good person would - embrace them without reservation or requirement.
The state is unwilling to define reparative therapy and denial of medical care to transgender youths as abuse. We cannot change what religious leaders are preaching, nor do our voices carry enough weight to effectively gainsay their religious messagi...

My intention is to fill up your stream with baby animals to break the saturation of negative images and videos. If you + this post, I will choose a baby animal for you.

I really encourage anyone to truly read the letter I'm linking here. It's true, and it's me, and it's so many other girls out there. It's painful for me to read, I can't quite make it through without crying honestly, but if you want insight into a form of child abuse? Maybe the last for that's acceptable socially here it is. Here is a letter written to the abusers. Rather than being punished they're still walking the streets. This story has killed the last little bit of respect I have for organized religion. 
The people who love Leelah for who she was and was never allowed to be will do right by her. Her sisters will do better.
