this was a conversation between me and one of my "friends" named Sara who after this convo I am no longer friends with. Thought I would share.... (this was my texting if your wondering...)
me: Hey, After today I am nolonger going by Grant. I'm going to start going by Ayumi and will start correcting people. So... could you just save me the trouble and use it?
sara:Uh..... sry but no
me: Um yeah, I consider you as a friend so out of respect for who I am you should. It's the nice thing to do.
sara: yes I'm your friend but I dont support your lifestyle choice. Im sorry if that offends you but I have a set of beliefs i go by and calling you a girl name goes against my morals...
me:Fine then. dont respect me. thanks alot... >.>
sara:im sorry... :/
me: and fyi: being trans isn't a lifestyle choice just like sexuality isnt.
Also, just because it goes against your morals dosent mean you shouldnt respect them all the same...
sara:I tolerate it. I refuse to support it.
me: well then your 1: not respecting me and 2: not being a good friend
sara;Im sorry that you feel that way. Its just that I care about you as a friend but I dont support your sin and im not going to be a part of it. Im sorry.
me: And thats where the line is crossed. Im done.
sara: Fine. im sorry you refuse to respect my beliefs. You are being just as inconsiderate as you think i am being.
any thoughts here????
