EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH THIS
I reblogged this video previously with no comment from my end because I was bawling my eyes out (as I am right now, so bear with me).
This mother shares the story of her child transitioning (MtF) at the age of 4. She had never even heard the term “Transgender” before, but she educated herself and she learned, and she stood by her daughter.
She talks about the hatred she received from fellow parents, friends and even her own family. The way she supports her daughter is so moving.
Future parents, please take note
First of all, I wanted to thank you. Before I started watching the show, I was really in the closet and I was totally ashamed of who I was. I hated myself. I started watching the show and seeing Cosima and seeing that everything is not about her sexuality and that she is more than her sexuality. My parents weren’t okay with me being gay. I started watching the show with my mum and its helped us start to rebuild our relationship because she sees Cosima and she sees that it’s okay and that people are more than their sexuality. I wanted to thank you for that. And my question is, what’s it like to have that effect on peoples lives? And to know that you are saving people’ lives like you did for me?
There has to be an expression for ‘came for the gay, stayed for the plot and characters’
The biggest problem I have with one of my clients are her kittens. When I head back to my car, they’re always crawling on my tires and I have to check where they are before I start the car. And its the most adorable problem ever.
The World will be here. I’ll be here. Will you?
