Lilly Wachowski comes out as trans


Recommended Posts

I'm going to let her letter speak for itself. It is awesome, moving, and makes me angry at the same time. I will say though, that I am glad someone is taking a swing at that ass-backwards, straight from the 5th century B.C. excuse for a "newspaper," The Daily Fail. It's a shame that she wasn't permitted to come out on her own terms, but I am glad to see someone more lgbt sensitive take the spotlight from Caitlyn Jenner.

Why is it anyone's business to out someone??? I feel bad for her having to come out when she clearly wasn't ready to come out yet. Why do these "news" organizations feel it is there job to potentially ruin someone else's life?? Trans people have a large suicide rate and forcing someone "out" could be a trigger for that person.

I wish Lilly luck on her new adventure. I hope she remains positive and remembers keep the love in and let the hate flow out.

1. That letter was strikingly beautiful. Lilly strikes me as being incredibly intelligent, compassionate, and strong. I'm not familiar with the work she and her sister have done - or at least I'm not familiar with their old names - but I'll be rectifying that soon. That letter was so moving - I can only imagine how good their work must be.

2. The fact that she wasn't able to share who she is when she felt ready.... That pisses me off. Who the fuck does that asshole reporter think he is?! What fucking right does anyone have to harass another person like that?!

3. To close, this reporter is the exact reason I decided not to go into Journalism. So many journalists care more about ratings and sales - they completely overlook the fact that there are real people being impacted by the stories they cover. This poor excuse for a journalist makes me sick.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
