Anonymous asked: (same anon still- if it's not anon don't post please) Yeah, I haven't been taken seriously before, & most of the psychologists around here are homophobic & religious, I'm scared to try to go to one & have something end up happening (even if I could afford it). Thx for the resources, I just wish I had someone here. I hate hugs but I need one :3. The other blog said that trans people need more attention & help than LGB people, & more support which they deserve more.
I think we run up to fairly problamatic ground when we start talking about who needs what “more.” We all need, as individuals, and we all have the ability to care for those close to us and on a larger scale promote actions that benefit everyone as a whole. No one should feel forced to divy up their love in certain amounts. Though I think most of those other blogs are really just trying to say that at this moment in time, the trans community has a lot less in the way of resources and support as a whole and suffer from issues in greater proportions because of it (like bullying, suicidal ideation, etc.) which should be addressed (because at the moment they are underaddressed). That isn’t to say that any specific individual should feel that they are not important enough for help because the conversation has taken a turn from their specific group or identity. You as an individual, whether gay, straight, bi or asexual, etc are important and deserve love and support. No one should ever tell you otherwise. Still, I dont believe people are trying purposefully to diminish your feelings or take away support but to just add trans people into the conversation. There is enough love and time and humanity for all and it can only increase, not be taken away, by adding more people to the mix.
Hope that made sense. Much love hun and I hope you feel better soon <3 There are some sources above if you need a hotline number or someone out of your area to call. Good luck.
