A Reddit post shares the dilemma of a 17-year-old boy who faced opposition from his sister after introducing his transgender girlfriend to the family. Here’s the full story.
He Met the Best Person
The Original Poster (OP) is a 17-year-old who shares that he recently met the most stunning person he has ever seen.
Since they like the same things, they quickly became friends. And after 6 months they started dating.
She Came Out to Him
After dating for about a week, his girlfriend revealed that she was Trans.
OP was okay with dating her as it didn’t matter to him.
Their relationship blossomed as he embraced her for who she truly was.
He Introduced Her to His Family
She has had several encounters with OP’s family, and about a month ago she came out to them as Trans as well.
Most of OP’s family members accepted her with open hearts, but his sister did not.
His Sister Didn’t Accept Her
His sister’s initial response to OP’s girlfriend’s identity was marked by avoidance and dismissiveness.
His sister reacted with transphobic remarks, displaying a lack of understanding and empathy.
Later, she questioned how OP anticipated having children if OP was seeing a “false lady.”
Have You Considered Your Future?
OP shouted at her to stop talking with him again since he doesn’t want children.
Then she stopped talking to him and the situation calmed down.
The Upcoming Wedding
However, things became interesting when recently, the invitations to OP’s sister’s wedding, which is in three months, were mailed out.
The invitation mentioned that everyone may bring a plus one. So OP decided to bring his girlfriend and submitted the RSVP.
Things Took a Turn
Things turned bad when his sister came over and informed OP that his girlfriend was not welcome as her friends and family would be there.
She Made More Transphobic Comments
OP questioned why he couldn’t bring his girlfriend, and his sister explicitly stated that she did not want a “delusional boy” at her wedding.
She said she was merely telling the truth when OP asked her to retract her statement.
OP referred to her as a transphobe and said that she should accept him coming with his girlfriend or not at all.
He Got Furious and Decided Not to Go to His Sister’s Wedding
She declared that she would “not let that creep into my wedding.” So OP told her not to count on him either.
However, she chuckled as if she believed OP wouldn’t follow through.
As a response, OP revoked his RSVP and discarded the wedding gift he had prepared.
Family Divisions and Support
His sister was enraged and started involving everyone else. But his uncle, other siblings, and even the sister’s fiancé were all on OP’s side.
As it is OP’s sister’s big day, his aunt and cousins who are on her side urged OP to go. OP mentioned that his aunt was as equally transphobic as his sister.
OP’s girlfriend advised him not to ruin his relationship with his sister because of her. OP informed her that if his sister continued to act in this way, it would eventually come to an end and that it might as well be now.
Readers Sided With Him
OP took to Reddit to ask if he was wrong for what he did and hundreds of comments poured in supporting OP.
One Reddit user wrote, “Even if your gf wasn’t in the picture, it’s your sister’s wedding. She has every right to say who is invited and who isn’t. However, I think your sister forgot that you have every right not to attend.”
Another Redditor pointed out that although one day maybe OP will feel a twinge of regret for not going as relationships evolve, OP will never regret standing by his values and principles.
