Would you have been able to walk out that door? At what point do we have to take care of ourselves, over the needs of another? Where do you draw that line?

@GreenKrog:

I would've. I've done more or less the same before, and was better off for it. Not condemning Annie for not doing it, just saying what I'd have done.

@Grenartia: Were you forced to go back to where people hated you? To detransition and lose the support of everyone?

If so.. wow. You are a way better person than I could ever be.

@GreenKrog:

I think there's some misunderstanding. All I did was get out of an incredibly shitty home situation (wasn't with either of my parents, but my mom's mother and stepfather). I wasn't out (either about my orientation or my gender, though I didn't even realize the latter back then), so I didn't get that, but the fear of being outed definitely contributed to the situation. All I'm saying is that it seems like Annie was given a similar opportunity, and didn't take it. Which doesn't reflect poorly on her.

I would have walked out the door. I may have also flipped her the bird, depending on my mood. My parents call me a willful child, and that applies to a lot more than trans stuff (I lucked out and got good parents, but I was ready emotionally when I came out to them to walk away). I probably would have regretted it later, and questioned the decision, but I still would have walked out the door.

Damn, poor Annie. I've been there and it really is a hard thing to do. Recently just got away from my abuser and I'm still in shock that it happened. I really hope one she can come back strong from whats happening.
