I was forced to apologize to my ex-boyfriend who pretended to be a woman to emotionally manipulate me and others, scammed my friends out of hundreds of dollars, cheated on me, threatened to kill themselves twice if I didn't do what they wanted, and attempted to convert me to bisexuality or even heterosexuality.
Why you may ask? Because I "dead named" them. A cis gay man who pretended to be a bisexual transwoman for profit.
Because of this, I was bullied, harassed, lied about, stalked, insulted, barred from an entire community... and was forced to apologize to those people. The people who tried to justify my ABUSE. Because "I was being mean." One person, Chloe, even told me my attempted suicide when I was being DOXXED BY A RACIST EXTREMIST WHO WANTED TO KILL ME AND MY FAMILY was "manipulation."
And then she had the nerve to say "she really cared about me" and tried to hug me after she called me a narcissistic psychopath, threatened to stalk me, defended my abuser AND GAVE THEM A JOB, and took old, outdated comments from my middle and high school days unrelated to the topic from a far-left troll and their gossip blog as "proof" and said she would "keep it for later" to "expose me."
But no, they did this out of "concern." Out of "love."
I was forced to apologized to my ABUSER... and then the people who bullied and harassed me for calling them out had the NERVE to say they cared for me all while calling me a narcissistic sociopath who deserved it all.
Moral of the story? Victim blaming exists. Stop fucking doing it.
