I'm not going to continue to engage someone who is suggesting that Hilary is comparing her decision to not leave her sexual predator husband to a decision about a tran child because they are worried about what trauma awaits them in the real world. This is some galaxy brain shit thats being generous to her beyond reason, and even if we grant you that this is what she was saying, it still doesn't not make it one of the most absurd comparisons Ive heard in a long time.It doesn't make a parent a bigot, for being absolutely terrified of the future their child will have, though you'll not find me once stating that parent who chooses not to support/accept their child being trans as in any way, shape or form, justified, because it is quite clearly, wrong and abhorrent to abandon your child like that. It is -brave- to not be a coward and do the right thing though, which is the entire point of my posts, and to be honest, this has very little to do with Hilary anymore, and more on the note that people discount how hard it can be for parents to go through a situation like that.
Oh, and I should clarify, I'm aware that some parents are just hateful bigots who don't struggle with the decision to abandon their child either.
