So, for some time now, my mom has been pummeling it into my head that Satan has infected my brain and I’m only trans because Satan told me to be. I’m mentally ill because I let Satan into my head.

When I told her she was misinformed that trans is a sin, she exploded on me. There are few times this woman has made me that pissed.

So just a few minutes ago, I picked up her Bible and read her the associated passage. It is a sin to crossdress, but it isn’t a sin to be trans.

I smirked, dropped the Bible, and strutted away...

WTFupdate!

So, mom invited over a Bible scholar to confirm my Bible-mic drop was accurate. Oh gosh...

This woman attacked me with her Bible-thumping and I handled it like I was juggling chainsaws, blindfolded, with my hands tied behind my back, and succeeding. :P

She started off really nice, she asked questions about trans definitions, what things mean, etc. She then had me read her the verse in which I have proven has no relation to trans people. Yo hoo did it go downhill from there.

First and foremost, she immediately brought up “homosexuals” because to her, gender and sexuality are the same thing. So by me becoming a woman, I’m somehow automatically gay. She refuses to believe that gender is not connected to sexuality. Or that my transition isn’t some sexual deviant thing.

She then brought up trans people dating trans people and physically shuddered. That’s when I said “well I have bad news for you, I am dating a woman like me” while laughing.

Her response was horrifying, “if homosexuals and transgenders are fine, what about men who rape boys? What about that man who kidnapped those women? Or that guy who shot up the church? Where do you draw the line?” Holy shit! Did she just compare me to...rapists, kidnappers, and murderers?

She decided to say that “if these people found God, they would not be homosexual”. I said “I’m sorry, but sexuality just doesn’t work like that. Nobody decides to be trans. Nobody decides to be gay. You can’t just flip a switch and be straight!!”

Then she started tackling the verse. Despite the fact that crossdressing and transgender are two very different things, she dismissed the fact and said “the Bible may not directly mention the trangendered (sic), but I know it isn’t right. Those words did not exist back then, so you have to interpret.” Right! And I see nothing relating to “man becoming woman, woman becoming man”, just “man dressing in female attire, and female dressing in male attire”. No matter how much you want to “interpret” that, it’s not talking about trans people.

So I showed her the Bible’s definition of “should not wear clothes of the other gender” which narrows it down to crossdressing, because of some event in which someone did it for malicious reasons.

She dismissed the Bible because “that definition was written by someone who studied the Bible, so it’s probably wrong.” Wait, the Bible I read it from is known as the most accurate version!!!

She had one final blow: “ You should put this gender thing on hold and start reading the scriptures. I think you’ll find that you don’t need to live a life of sin and find happiness with the Lord”.

I asked what she meant by the “you should put this gender thing on hold” part. And she said “stop dressing like a woman and visit our...” And before she finished her sentence, my mom stood up and said “Get the fuck out of my house”.

Before the lady got up, I said “There is not a verse in your cute little book, not a word a single human can say, not even an invisible deity, that will change who I am. I’m freaking happy, and I don’t give a darn what your book says about it. You can’t change me!”

At that moment, I just left the house to run a quick errand. When I came back an hour later, the woman was still there! WTF mom? Whatever happened to “Get the fuck out of my house!?!?!?!?

Later on, my mom did apologize for letting that woman into the house and speaking to me like that. Nope, the wound was opened, I give no fucks about this stuff anymore.
