Coming Out Bad Reaction- coming out transgender

Ill be approving comments when I can.

A lot of people I have talked to online and off have suggested I make a gofundme to help kickstart my long journey to transitioning. Honestly I was reluctant to make a gofundme because I feared I would appear greedy, or that this was all an act to get money, it really isn’t.

For those of you wondering, here’s the poem I wrote and used in the video, I made a few slight changes when reciting it because I was going by memory not reading it, so here it is:

When I was five
All my Barbies were married to girls.
I wanted to grow up
To be just like Barbie.
I wanted a beautiful wife
To come home to
And be with for the rest of my life.
When I was five
I knew I was attracted to girls,
I knew i wasn’t normal.

When I was eight,
I sat on the sidelines
Watching the boys play soccer,
Begging to be asked to join.
I wanted to be like them.
Tomboy, they had called me,
But I wanted to be more than that.

When I was twelve
I asked for top surgery,
I asked to remove my boobs.
You made me feel like a freak,
‘You’re not a boy’ you would say,
‘You would have been born a boy if God wanted you that way’

When I was sixteen
I avoided every mirror,
The girl that stared back at me,
I knew I wasn’t her.
I hated what I saw,
I hated my body,
It made me so uncomfortable,
It made me sick
And I knew I wanted to change it.

And now, at nineteen
I have something I want to say.
This body,
This body of mine,
I want it to go away.
Mom, dad,
I need you to listen,
You won’t like the truth,
This I know,
Mom, dad,
I want to be your son.
Amanda is what you call me,
Amanda is who you know,
But that isn’t who I am.
Mom, dad,
Can I be known
As your son,
Riley?

This has been Riley L. Onyx (aw-nyx)
