I thought this was a very human explanation of a coming out story. She states it wasn't done right way, but if you are thinking of coming out, it might be of value to watch it.

Ahh, yes, defininitely the wrong way to go! The truth is most marriges/partnerships fail through transition as it is such a hard thing to get through! If there is any chance of making it, trust needs to be a foundation, and recognising that both parties will be transitioning, and so both need to be fully informed and part of all decisions. Even then, it comes down to the people themselves, and if their love is sufficient to overcome this huge shift in life. I truly envy anyone pair who can make it through this, but the reward is truly worth the effort.

The reaction of the wifes parents, and probably that of the wife, is that the trans person is mentally sick, and unfortunately, this is the most common reaction, and frustratingly, so wrong! So many relationships, families, and even social groups could be saved if the perception on mental illness could be removed from the equations.

Hugs,

Allie

Allie I think it is almost like a drug that people take, this joy they get out of condemning us in some fashion. I think it actually gives some a high, like, "Look at me, how righteous I am!"

Yes. The “righteous indignation junkies” are addicted to that burst of endorphins they’ve learned to trigger in their brains. It’s an actual thing!


Indeed, one could look at our present-day political landscape and argue that a relentless addiction to indignation may be one of the chief drivers of obstinate dogmatism and an inability to negotiate pragmatic solutions to a myriad modern problems. It may be the ultimate propellant behind the current ‘culture war.’
