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.
Living With a Transphobic Family
Alex 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.
They Were Religiously Abusive
Throughout the years, her family subjected her to religious abuse, resorting to threats of eviction or even the false claim of insanity to maintain control over her life.
Threats of Physical Aggression
Even her interest in collecting comics led to a feud, and when she said she wanted to move out at 19, it resulted in her father raising a fist in anger.
They Were Transphobic
Their discriminatory attitude towards gay and Trans people was evident, and their support for the January 6th riots only added to the toxic atmosphere.
The Unexpected Surprise
Amidst this turmoil, Alex received an unexpected lifeline, a $50,000 living inheritance from her paternal grandmother.
This allowed her 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.
A Difficult Fate
However, fate dealt a difficult hand, as the move-in date coincided with the funeral of her maternal grandfather.
The dilemma weighed heavily on Alex’s mind.
She Was Scared
She had not come out as a Trans woman yet, and attending the funeral for people who would eventually despise her felt disingenuous.
The Difficult Choice Was Mad
The decision to skip the funeral was not an easy one, but she felt it was necessary for her own well-being and safety.
She Came Out
Alex’s family was furious, and she had to explain why she wasn’t attending the funeral. Fast forward 2 years later, and Alex hasn’t seen any of them since.
The Right Call!
Now Alex feels bad about what happened and took to Reddit to ask whether her actions were selfish. Several Redditors sided with her 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.”
You Had to Save Yourself!
Another Redditor commented, “You saved yourself and escaped from your abusive family. You were not selfish at all.”
