The Ultimate Trump Card
Six years. We have been fighting for our son for six years.
Everywhere we turn we are asked if we would rather have a live daughter or a dead son. The favored trump card of the transgender cult. The emotional manipulation cuts and hacks at us.
We are beaten and bloody. We take blow after blow and are expected to shut up and take it. There is no relief. We are manipulated. Our other children are manipulated. History is re-written and we are cast as the villain.
We pray constantly. We research. We try to reason. We try to offer compassion. We try to offer support in neutral terms. If we dare express our distress or pain, we are stomped on. If we bring up the lies and manipulation that have brought us to this place we are immediately shut down.
Yet, we hold the line, even when the ultimatum is given - “call me daughter or get out of my life.” We beg for compromise, but none is allowed. And again the trump card is played - suicide. Affirm or else. And we fold.
