There is an eleven-year-old girl that is going to be institutionalized and brainwashed into being a boy. See, there are some people that believe little girl should be a boy because it upholds their moral beliefs. I’m going to tell you a story. There is no feeling worse than denial. And these people want to take this little girl and make her deny the fact that she is a girl. She will be forced to believe and act as though she is a boy, and will never see her mother again when she is released. I happen to know what it feels like to be in denial and I know what it’s like to be locked up… I’m going to tell you what it’s like.
It’s hard to breathe, but you’re panting half to death. Your hands don’t stop shaking. You can’t open your eyes for hours at a time. It’s dead silent and you’re alone. There are cages on the window, you can’t even see the world outside. You grasp onto the sounds that drift by, the sound of a car passing by makes you want to claw through the wall, just to see it. There is cold sweat drenching your clothes. You hallucinate things, and you know it. You know that window you just saw wasn’t really there. That guts you from the inside out. You have to wait while these suits you never see decide whether or not you’re ready to get out. Then you have these horrifying nightmares. You are SCREAMING ON THE INSIDE, behind layers and layers of steel and brick. Completely and utterly helpless. Someone please help. Please help me. Why am I here? What’s wrong with me? Please. Please Please. Why? Breathe. Breathe breathe breathe breathe! Stop it! Help me!
That was the first day I spent in a mental ward. I can’t even talk about the other days I spent there. I willingly admitted myself into it because of anxiety issues and panic attacks. Family even visited me, and I still felt like that. That’s what it was like, WILLINGLY. I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like for that little girl, who is being forced into it and will never see her family again.
So sign this petition. Help save that little girl’s life.
People are saying it’s about gay rights and transgender rights, but it really isn’t. It’s about a little girl who is going to be tortured into being something she isn’t.
