My ex had autogynophilic tendencies and used this as part of decades of domestic abuse including sexual. After being told that he was most likely a malignant narcissist with psychopathic tendencies i started to see parallels with TRA attacks that I’d started to see happen.
He had enforced language changed etc from very early on in the relationship. and I was loving and accommodating and realised how easy it would have been for me.to be a trans widow.
Additionally I saw 2 young women transition after bullying/sexual assault and they seemed like classic ROGD and the thought of them probaby desisting after being blithely transed and irreparably altered horrified me.
I have spoken to.people irl (in real life) , started speaking up online, gone to a demo, started being more active in feminist circles.
I’ve been considered hateful. I’ve feared being too visible as I am still.a cptsd sufferer dealing with years of traumatic sexual and other abuse but I’ve been more brave since jk Rowling’s first tweets. I’ve started liking things. and today I have been retweeting and liking loads of things. Before the abuse I was a whistle blower and stood up for others and now I’m going to try and be as strong again.
Marina, I stand with JK Rowling
