I want us to play a game. I want you to imagine yourself living in Florida and working as a counselor. In your spare time you like to surf and enjoy the beautiful hot Florida sun on your skin. You fall in love with a lovely woman and you decide to get up and move with her to the less trans friendly place of Virginia, which is a region known for being the mainstay of Evangelical fundamentalist Jerry Falwell. You two decide to get married and as time goes on she turns on you. She couldn’t bear the stigma of being partnered with a trans person. She completely and utterly abandons you.
Lets stop playing the game now that I’ve got your attention. Maybe this story doesn’t give you the warm fuzzy feelings in your heart but hang tight….. This story gets worse.
