    Good on you for trying.
    When people act like an asshole these days, they get called an asshole. That's more honest, not less.

    Calling people names is generally cheap and dickish and not helpful.

    What we need are more individuals with the stones and the honesty to attempt conversation with those who upset them.

    I really have no reason to hold a civil conversation with nazis, sexists, rapists, antivaxxers, conspiracy nuts, etc. They're assholes, I'm going to call them assholes. Sorry this triggers you. Maybe you just need to be tougher?

    I have found that everyone has stuff to teach me, and me getting better is the point of my time, your approach looks to me like you slit your own throat, I certainly dont care to join you.

    You learn all you want to learn from nazis.

    Also, you're full of ****. You haven't learned **** from anyone on this message board.

    I got the call after I got home.

    I am so, so hurt right now.
    I'm sorry to hear about your experience. In my head, the offense is even worse because they accepted your transgender identity until you decided to appear as your authentic self. I say it all the time in this forum: Hate is alive and well and is a constant, dangerous threat to minorities of all types. I hope you are able to eventually turn your pain into a new, positive opportunity.

    Next time go forth with boldness just as you are and damn everyone who can't accept you. You have every right to be there and bowl as all the other citizens do. Animals can smell weakness and your not going in the first time as your authentic self was their bait for hate. That was sensed as weakness. I'm sorry you are hurting when you absolutely should not be.
