Up-Not-North

mildlypeevedtran replied to your post “jewcy-couture replied to your post “I know for a fact that at least…”

Rude. But unfortunately true, I’m just lucky mine’s not that strong (Brum)

I knew I’d offend someone, heh. I only give you Brummies a hard time because a friend of mine was convinced that because I live up north, we had a different moon. So… sorry, buddy, you’re stuck with her as my introduction to your people.

Childhood

When I was about five years old, we still lived up north in Erie, PA, where lake effect snow makes it very very cold. My mother was putting jackets on us all (I had three siblings) and as she buttoned up my big puffy snow jacket, I started crying very loudly. “What’s wrong, honey?” My mom asked. And with lots and lots of tears, I shouted, “I look fat!!” My mom had to cover a little smile, and my dad, who was then very homophobic/transphobic, had to leave the room in disgust. Many episodes like that frustrated him. My mom comforted me and told me that all the kids had big jackets and that I couldn’t look fat if I tried. I was just about consoled. Strangely enough my dad has no issues with my transition. He embraces me gladly. He has apologized for the way he was to me when I was little. My mom, on the other hand, has had difficulty with my transition. Very strange how things change in people. But a cute story nonetheless.
