"Steven went missing from Facebook on Friday (I think). His girlfriend said his dad wanted them to breakup, and threatened to kick him out. He hasn't been to school. He was starting testosterone soon. My friend said his dad wanted him to be a straight girl.(This young MAN hasn’t been able to contact his GF or even his own brother. We believe his mother took his phone so he couldn’t contact the group.)
"My step father kicked me and my mom out of our house today. I told him I was transgender and things got complicated and he pulled a knife on me. So now we're at a friend's house. And my dad said that he would let me move in with him for a while. I told him about the situation and he said my life was more important than my gender. So I think that means he's starting to accept me. By the way does anyone know how Steven is doing? I'm really worried about him." (this friend will probably be calling the police for that sorry excuse for a man's death threat.)
"Hey guys. I've been dealing with a whole lot lately. Yesterday I didn't get out of bed AT ALL, didn't eat or drink anything. I've just been so depressed lately and I think it's getting worse. Especially when my guardians (my grandparents) make me go to their stupid apostolic church. When I went last Sunday this girl who had been a friend of mine gave me a card saying that she wrote something in it for me. This is what it said; "To my best friend, the coolest friend I met in church. I'm glad you're a GIRL not a BOY. Here is a card for you and for God to share his love for you. I love you my friend, ______." She wrote my birth name at the end. Seriously, with all I've been going through, this made me break down. Day by day I get more tempted to cut my own hair. But my mom (who's wanting to get custody of me) has been telling me to wait. "Please do this for me and don't cut it. You're being selfish wanting to cut your hair. Some men have long hair. Sweetie, you're hurting me by wanting to."
All from different people in a matter of days.
Oh and one saved a dog's life but why should that matter?

Oh look! Within seconds of putting this journal up, another friend had this status to put up!
"I lost my friend who is against transgender people. I was sticking up for those who want to be girl or boy. She had no right to tell me that people who change there gender are *confused*. It pissed me the freaken off that she was judging. I hate those who judge. I mean come on... I am not crazy for thinking in my mind I want to cuddle,talk with,go on walks, go to the movies or travel with a f2m or m2f. Maybe that's why I want good friends in here who will understand me because I'll understand u. U would be so special to me that I wouldn't let anyone harm u. I love people! That's why I am social!"
Oh and another!
"A young man died on 2/26 by stepping into traffic. He was transitioning into a man and as a result of fearsome bullying, he ended his life.
