As if he isn't depressed now. And a rabid activist anger. Sounds fun. All without the counsel of a psychiatrist I would guess. So sad. I grew up in Seattle. It has lost it. How do activists ruin whole cities, culture, behavior and morals? Because the media loves it. And the administration cheer leads it. Marxism playbook. Or voices have been silenced due to censorship and the word police. Speak up, jump in. "Say, no, that is not true...and you know that!" One of my favorites anyhow! A lot of people will just go along, but when you jump in and are articulate and firm, they start siding with you because you have the truth.

Eph. 6. [12] “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

May God Almighty hear your cries and intervene and cast away the demons tormenting your son. In Jesus name! 🙏🙏🙏

It makes me wonder if being married to a bisexual woman with borderline personality disorder might have had something to do with it. If she was attracted to women, maybe he was subconsciously trying to place his wife.

I’m so sorry. I can’t even blame the devil or pray because it I’m an aetheist so no comfort for me there.

I hope it helps comfort you. It’s just beyond awful 😞

My heart goes out to you, my son (mid 30´s), also aprox 2 and half years ago announced out of the blue that he had gender dysphoria and was transitioning. It has been and still is the most disturbing and distressing situation I have gone through. The theme totally repeats itself and your son could be my son. He is also in rocky relationship with a supposedly heterosexual female!!! Beats me. I aslo feel I have lost a son, I know my other children also are feeling the loss. Everyday I pray that he wakes up and realizes what an increible and valuable person he is, that we are still here, love him and that until he overcomes his trauma, his internalized homophopia, his deep hate about himself, no clothes,no new name, no new pronouns, no make up, no medications or surgery are going to be a cure for his distress and unhappiness. In the beginning I tried to help, total mistake, I now know that unfortunately this his his journey to overcome and find that little happy and smiling boy and reach his happines as a gay man. I also pray that somehow, someway, he meets a man, that will love hem for who he is and that he can also love back, since II know that the relationship he is in now with is totally toxic. It always helps to write, so thank you for sharing your story and letting us know we are not alone in our journeys of letting go. Take care of yourself

What are you talking about, Randy? I’m suggesting talking to the child’s mother. I think you read too quickly.

I have read your story about your adult son and can’t help but feel your heartbreak.

With each PITT story I read of broken families, trashed relationships, and so many lives ruined, I get ever angrier and more outraged. I know it’s wrong, but I find myself hating this sick, desperately destructive cult.

I also find myself hating the states who continue to give this cult refuge even as the world wakes up to what is being done and turns against it and all its evil doings and wanton lies. We cannot abide this present state of affairs, and there are stirrings of struggles to come. Come what may, let us be resolved that we will bring the end to this dangerous, diseased ideology, this mad, monstrous lie.

Soo so sorry this has happened to your family the disturbing changes in appearance, the anger when not given or told what they want, the complete disregard for anyone else’s feelings even their own children!! This is the most self centred, aggressive, nasty and vicious cult since the 2nd World War. Another dangerous, evil ideology full of sadly weak-minded lost people with severe mental imbalances. The tide is turning, keep safe and pull together with his ex wife and your grand children and weather the storm. We all support you!!

Thank you all for your thoughtful comments and support. We all need a place to go and tell our story and hear about others, it helps to know we are not alone in this. And no matter how old the person is, they are still ours, our kids who we love and will forever, no matter the decisions they have made for themselves. And just to note, sometimes people lose sight of the fact that these are all human beings who have feelings, too, and can be hurt by unkind words and being called names. It just doesn't help anything. I see it all too often and being the parent to a person who has moved into this lifestyle it hurts me to hear it, even if they don't. The one thing I think about for every parent, is the disruption of the family in so many of these instances. For so many this decision has changed family dynamics forever, and it's so very sad. My heart really does go out to all of you.

Absolutely devastating. My heart goes out to you. Poor children - how are they handling it and do they even have a relationship with their father?

He is not gay. He is an autogynephile.

Same. Same. Same. It is like you’ve written about what we’ve experienced the last couple years. Our son relocated to Seattle almost 3 years ago now when he was 23. We have gradually gone from occasional text responses to, I believe, being blocked. Like you, I came across this group and the same stories of anguish. My heart continues to break.

I'm sorry you're going through this. It sounds like you had a wonderful son. I understand those looks from other people. It breaks our hearts to see people looking at our sons that way. I became defensive, and also sad, almost pitying. Yes, agree about the mental health "professionals" failing these men, these women too. I had an affirming Dr. of psychology who had experience with trans people and after several sessions with him, at first with my detransitioning son, then just me because my son didn't want to see him anymore, he finally said to me one session, "I think my profession has let this population down. He used to get somewhat defensive, saying he has treated several trans people. Maybe a little progress. But it's too little too late for what our sons have suffered. Take care and thank you for sharing here.

Oh my! AGPs sometimes go on to transition, but for most of them it is a fetish and they don't want to give up their genitalia. I had no idea how sex-negative this group is. There are REAL transgender people, you know. It's the children I'm concerned about.
