Her Transphobia Dad Claimed She Was Insane and Scared Her Away From Her Grandmother’s Funeral

In a recent Reddit post, a user found herself facing a moral dilemma of not going to her grandfather’s funeral due to his transphobic nature. Here’s the full story.

Transgender Girl Was Threatened by Her Dad

The Original Poster (28) realized she was transgender at the age of 25.

Living in her grandmother’s home, where she had no choice but to stay for five years, was fraught with religious abuse from her family.

The family has been religiously abusive to her over the years by making threats to throw her out or keeping lifelong custody by claiming she was insane.

Even her interest in collecting comics led to a feud, and when she expressed the desire to move out at 19, it resulted in her father raising a fist in anger.

He Supported the January 6th Riots

Their discriminatory attitudes towards gay and Trans people were evident, and their support for the January 6th riots only added to the toxic atmosphere.

Amidst this turmoil, OP received an unexpected lifeline, a $50,000 living inheritance from her paternal grandmother.

This provided her with an opportunity to escape the oppressive environment and start anew.

She decided to move three states away with a friend she had met on social media, embracing the chance for freedom and self-discovery.

She Loved Her Grandmother Dearly

However, fate dealt a difficult hand, as the move-in date coincided with the funeral of her maternal grandfather.

The dilemma weighed heavily on OP’s mind.

She had not come out as a Trans woman yet, and attending the funeral for people who would eventually despise her felt disingenuous.

The decision to skip the funeral was not an easy one, but OP felt it was necessary for her own well-being and safety.

She Hasn’t Seen Her Family for Years

OP’s family was furious, and she had to tell them the reason.

Fast forward 2 years later and OP hasn’t seen any of them since.

Now OP felt bad about what happened and took to Reddit to ask whether her actions were selfish.

“You Saved Yourself and Escaped From Your Abusive Family”

Several Redditors sided with OP and said that she was not wrong.

One Reddit user wrote, “Made the right call for so many reasons. Sorry, you had to go through that.”

Another Redditor commented, “You saved yourself and escaped from your abusive family. You were not selfish at all.”
