The Adult Baby Story

My first reblog. This article, from a detransitioner, is too excellent to pass up. Must read.

“You might say, well, but that’s what he needs to do to be happy. There’s some pity in that response, but I don’t think there’s a lot of actual respect in that response…

It’s the difference between respecting someone’s identity and respecting them. Saying “I will play along because you need this to feel ok,” and saying, “Whoa, you’re too valuable to not investigate why you need such a limited life to feel ok, also, are you actually feeling more ok these days? Maybe it’s time to go back to the drawing board re: how you try to make yourself feel ok?””
