About the Gender Critical Support Board

My adult (over 18) daughter was first a lesbian for years. Totally fine with that. Then her partner was trans. Now, my once girly girl is claiming trans. 

I'm trying my best not to "offset" anything. Everything revolves around her new gender ID. She is insisting I call her by her new name. Insisting I use proper pronouns. She threatens suicide constantly. I feel so alone with nobody to talk to. I escape by working overtime and actually enrolled in college to further my career. It's actually a really long story but this is the basics. 

I also feel she lives in a fantasy world with the internet. I feel the internet is a big influence on her behavior. She was not part of the technology world until the end of high school... when smart phones came out and we got a computer. 

Idk how to speak anymore let alone breathe. ☹

Hi CloudyDays9,
I am so sorry you are going through this but I'm glad you found the forum. It doesn't look like you've gotten any responses, so I would re-post in the Our Stories forum.
My 21 yr old son came out totally out of the blue last September and this is unbelievably hard. I still feel like a newby here, but my best advice is to subscribe to Sasha Ayad's Patreon account ($5-10/month) and watch her videos about ROGD and how to deal with it. It's tough when they are legally adults but her videos are still applicable. Also, 4thwavenow and transgendertrend are both great websites to explore. I've also learned a lot on Twitter by following gender critical folks, detransitioners and older transsexuals who are mortified by the number of young kids transitioning, becoming activists and destroying the reputation they have worked to achieve for decades. It makes me feel better watching detransition videos on YouTube. There is a group of four female detransitioners called Pique Resilience Project that is making videos. They also have a Patreon account but post on YouTube as well.
So many of these trans identifying girls turn out to be lesbians only. It's just really trendy right now to be trans, and social media serves as a recruiting mechanism.
I'm sorry it took so long for you to get a response, but if you post in Our Stories more people will see it and you will get lots of support. You are not alone.
Hugs!
