“ They say that “the most painful state of being is remembering the future, particularly the one you’ll never have.” And God does that drip down into my soul. I envisioned you and I, I envisioned us. My whole entire being would shake the earth to have what my mind wanted to be true. A future of an “us”. But alas as we continue to grow into our lives, we realize that not everything we want is everything we get. And that’s the painful truth. If I had the one thing that I wanted right now, it’d be you and I. You and I looking at each other in the way we always do, with happiness and excitement, but then with longing, I’d choose for the moment we were sitting in a parked car blaring music still too afraid to admit what we really feel. But then suddenly getting the courage to sum up everything we’ve been feeling for each other with one simple kiss. But life isn’t a movie, and a kiss doesn’t solve everything. Because I am here and you are there, and we don’t talk anymore. It is painful. It’s painful to envision the future we could of had. It feels like a memory being stripped away from existence even though it never happened. But at the end of the day, what needed to happen has happened for a reason. No matter how much that fact stings. And right now, I need to let you go.”

Bitter

Feeling resentful about the economic burden of being transgender.

While cis people are saving up for advanced degrees, vacation, real estate, investments, and retirement — trans people are putting away every penny we have so we can be less dysphoric and be somewhat respected by cis society. How can our community thrive when each of us needs 10-200k just to stay alive? How can we even begin to measure the consequences of this economic burden?

Not only that, but we are routinely cut-off from economic stability and prosperity by transphobic families, schools and workplaces. The one-two punch of huge medical costs + educational/professional discrimination means that being transgender is LITERALLY MAKING US POORER THAN IF WE WERE CIS and therefore more oppressed (thanks, capitalism).

I wish I could quantify how much being transgender has and will cost me and other trans people. Like if we could put a price tag on all the economic oppression. Not just in how much $ I will pay for surgery and medical care, but also in the number of professional opportunities I’ve lost because I’m trans (looking at you, midwifery school!). Like yeah I don’t regret coming out but I can still fucking hate the ways it has set me back financially and professionally.

And I don’t even have it that bad! If I wasn’t a trans man, if I wasn’t white-passing, if I didn’t come from a wealthy family, if I hadn’t gone to an Ivy League college, I would probably still be suicidal and in the closet and saving up for surgery. *blood boils*
