So, last night, I was getting ready to go out with my boyfriend to a dance at my school (which was cancelled due to lack of ticket sales) and, I had a nice black vest and a nice white shirt, and my uncle had just came home the other day from the mine (my uncle is homophobic and he has abused me many times throughout my child hood) and when I had came out of my room to show my memere how nice I looked, my uncle was in the room that i thought my grandma/memere would be in (she was downstairs doing laundry), and he asked me why I wasnt wearing a dress.
my memere and dad both know that I am transgendered and they respect that, however, my uncle does not, and he did not know.
so I decided to sit down and tell him the truth.
he listened carefully and quietlly through all of it, but at the end of my explanation he had said, “I didn’t raise you to be fucked up.”
I agreed, I am a huge mess, I have been for years, but my sexuality and gender identity is not a fuck up, so I argued with him.
he got to a point where, after so many months of piece, he slapped me.
and threw me to the ground and kicked me in the stomach, of course I had puked, and it hurt, a lot.
he grabbed me by the shirt and asked me, “are you a girl”, I said no, my sex is female, but my gender is male..and he dragged me to his room.
he once had a big dog, and he made that dog wear an eletrical dog collar, and weve always kept it in his room, because we dont need it (my uncle killed the dog), he threw me onto the bed and said,” ill ask you one more time, are you a girl” I said no.
held grabbed my wrist, and held onto it tightly, I have a bruise from how tight he was grabbing it, and he pulled out the dog collar, threw me back onto the bed, sat on me, and put the collar on me… then he began yelling, are you a girl, you are a girl, are you a girl, you are a girl, and my response of course was no, no, no, I am male, I am male.
whenever I said that, he would shock me, and it was /hell/.
I was screaming, which only caused the shocks to get worse and worse, and then he said, “do you want to find out how faggots have sex!?” of course I already know this, but still I said no no no no stop stop stop.
my memere had finally heard me and came rushing to the bedroom, and tried to make my uncle stop, but he pushed her down, and thanked god she was okay.. since shes very fragile and all.
she then ran back to the stairs to call up my dad, and oh boy did he run.
he ran up stairs and shoved my uncle away from me and started fighting with him, yelling, punching, kicking, and such so on.
my memere got the collar off of me and brought me into her room, and after my dad and uncle were done fighting, my uncle had grabbed the things he needed and left, shouting a few insults at us.
we called the police today, but they cant find him.
we dont have money for a lawyer, all we have is a counsellor, im not going to ask for money, all I ask for is support.
I dont know what this will do, but please spread this around, this has affected me and family members greatly. I was taken to a hospital today to check if there was any damage on my insides that we dont know of and thankfully there was no damage, just scarring, emotionally and physically. i had a horrifying nightmare relating to this as well.
If you have abused somebody, raped somebody, insulted somebody, in any way possible, I hope this can somehow change your way of heart, and realize how much this can horrify a person, and ruin their lives. it made my life 97x worse than it already is.

This is it. This video is everything Mass Effect means to me. I’ll damn near cry every time I watch it, because this story, these characters, have been with me every day of my life for the past six years. They’ve touched me in ways no other fiction, of any medium, has ever done. It’s not even close.
Remember your first trip through the relay? That first time the Citadel opened? The moment you realized Sovereign was a goddamned reaper? Almost losing Wrex. Having to choose on Virmire.Vigil. Walking up the elevator shaft of a shattered Citadel. That shit eating grin when Shepard emerges from the wreckage.
The breathtaking destruction of the Normandy. Shepard’s helpless tumble through space. When the helmet comes off Archangel and it’s Garrus, and you wanted to cry because you were so happy to see a familiar face.
Kaidan walking away on Horizon. The collectors are fucking protheans, what the holy fuck? Tali weeping in your arms. Befriending a geth. Mordin sings. Joker plugging in the overlord. Taking the plunge through the Omega 4 and finding holy shit what the fuck on the other side. Coming home from the suicide mission with no one left behind. Or losing someone you cared about.
Liara is the Shadow Broker. Holy hell.
Spotting Kaidan on Earth. I used to. The first reaper horns. Leaving Earth in a cloud of ash. Almost losing a friend on Mars, in some cases a lover. Hearing Garrus’ voice on Menae, how relieved you were he was alive. Grunt. Oh, Grunt, when we thought we lost you, that rush of excitement when you stumbled back home.
Tuchanka. Where I wept like I’d lost a dear friend. Had to be me, someone else might have gotten it wrong.
Thane, that moment when you thought he’d won…and then that cruel, perfect slip of the blade. Guide this one, kalahira. Punching Han’Gerrel in his flipping gut. Facing down a reaper. On FOOT, you badass. Does this unit have a soul? Losing. To that pansy bitch Kai Leng. Summoning the fleets to Earth, watching them pour out of the relay, standing strong, standing together. Because of Shepard.
Saying goodbye to the ones you love. Go out there, and give them hell. You were born to do this.
I’m proud of you.
The heartbreak. The outrage. Holding the line.
…Citadel. Your friends standing by your side. Laughing. Fighting. For you. WINDING UP ON SET WITH BLASTO. A tattoo. A tango. A shuttle ride. A song. The food of my people. The party. Hanars and sweaters.
A great ride.
This game is so much more than a game. It’s brought me joy. Laughter. Tears. Friends. Gets me way to excited about a letter and a number.
Happy N7 Day.
You hit the husk on the head.
Oh god the feels
