I just want lesbians to know that it’s hard being a trans man. I spent the majority of my life believing I was a super butch lesbian because I was raised in a conservative family that never knew shit about being transgender. I made relationships with lots of lesbians and I felt like I was really apart of a strong wlw community. And then I came out as trans and I was completely cut off. Nobody from before wanted anything to do with me. It’s hard that I had such a supportive group that I felt safe in, and now I have nothing because I identify as a different member of the lgbtq+ and it hurts. I feel like lesbians feel like we’ve betrayed who we were. Gay men don’t take us seriously because we’re not “real” men so we’re not good enough. And everyone just resents us. There’s so much advertising for accepting bisexuality and being a trans woman, but everyone seems to forget that trans men exist and they come in all shapes and sizes and they face discrimination too.
