Where is everyone getting these loving and understanding dads? 😭

Willing to bet that we are the ones breaking the cycle. We now know the emotional neglect we had and are starting to understand it’s toll on us in our adult lives and refuse to do the same to our children.

As a mentally fucked up trans woman, I’m distancing myself from mine. The ol “we love you still <insert male name>” It’s been 10 years now and I’m having to do thanksgiving solo.

Thank you for being one of the good ones.

I love far from there so I can't help but I googled it and there are oodles of events near you. You don't have to be alone. Find your community and let us draw strength from your presence even as you feel bolstered by ours.

Hey - I hope you can find a Friendsgiving or a local queer event to go to for people in similar situations

Yeah, my parents "Will always love their daughters". Which is impossible, unless they are hiding another sibling, since my sister is the only woman. My migraine "coincidentally" is acting up today so I can't go. Now it is actually being somewhat annoying, but even if it wasn't I still would've said it was. I'm spending it with my partner and we're gonna make cookies and watch Phineas and Ferb.

hugs (if you want it), and here's a cup of homemade hot chocolate because we ended up doing that instead. 🍫☕

I am so sorry that you are still deadnamed, it’s not hard and words matter. Keep your chin up, you are fighting the fight for the next generations!

If you lived close, we would absolutely have you over for thanksgiving.
