more and more I am starting to realize that my mom may not
support me anymore when she finds out who I am and how I
identify. It's not a fun thought- actually, it has been
keeping me up at night. Mothers are, in theory, supposed
to be the ones who take care of their children and protect
them. Mine... seems to have an inkling that I might not identify
the way she thought I would at birth, and to counter this she
has been agressively calling me terms related to the identity
she wishes me to have.
For God's sake, I don't even know if I actually identify that
way! I'm just questioning, you know. Exploring my options and
such. It isn't as serious as she seems to think it is, and
even if it was, I would go so far as to say it's not really her
business. My identity is my own business, and no-one else's.
