A friend of mine posted a really ignorant poem of sorts on Facebook to do with transgender people. I'm not transgender myself, but as a pansexual, I am attracted to people of all genders, and I also support the transgender community. He has posted something in the past that was him posting a picture of himself with a fake (method redacted) as a joke, and that's obviously triggering to me for lots of reasons. A family friend told my mom that God is mad and punishing everyone because there are gay people in the world. But I have to deal with her because she raises my nephew and that's the only way I can see him. Other people have posted homophobic and hateful things and talked about them. They're not always bad though, in fact they can be quite kind at times. I find it hard to reconcile that with the fact that they still hold some very harmful viewpoints. I don't know how to deal with people in my life who accept me for how I am, but also don't. Does anyone else have to put up with this stuff, and how do you deal with it?
