A mother was sharing a custody arrangement with her ex-husband, where they split custody of their two children: a 16-year-old transgender daughter and a 14-year-old son. Unfortunately, the 16-year-old daughter would soon face a nasty situation involving her conservative father and his family.
The Mother’s Support
The daughter came out as transgender a year ago and began her transition. The mother, being bi and raised by a gay couple, was always very accepting and understanding of her daughter’s gender identity. She fully embraced her daughter’s journey and wanted to support her transition in any way she could.
The Father’s Conservatism
Unfortunately, the support from the daughter’s mother was not matched by her father. The man came from a strict and conservative religious background, and as the mother explained, “Not the good ‘love one another’ religious, but the ‘Feeling gay? Little Jesus should fix that’ religious”.
Becoming A Girly Girl
The mother noticed her daughter’s transition, describing her as becoming “a typical girly girl… we have mother-daughter days where we get our nails done and buy her some clothes.” Unfortunately, the father never truly accepted his daughter’s transition.
Growing Her Hair Out
As part of her gender transition, the daughter had been growing her hair to be very long and feminine. “It’s a little below her clavicle”, beamed her proud mother.
Ex-Husband’s Family Tradition
The ex-husband’s mother had a tradition involving two specific photos taken with the males in the family when they turned 16. It involved them wearing a formal suit, recreating a previous generation’s photo. After her daughter transitioned, the mother assumed that this tradition would be dropped until her other child turned into a 16-year-old man.
Reluctance To Change Tradition
Despite the mother’s thoughts, her ex-husband and his family planned to continue the photograph tradition, as they did not accept that the young girl had transitioned. When her 16th birthday came about, her father and his mother insisted on taking the photograph, encouraging her to wear a suit despite her not feeling comfortable with it.
Haircut For The Photograph
The daughter reluctantly accepted to be a part of the suit photograph but drew the line when her dad’s mother told her it was time for a haircut. After she declined, the ex-grandmother suggested that the girl tie her hair into a ponytail to make the length less obvious, which the girl complied with.
A Nasty Trick
Unfortunately, this suggestion was nothing but a nasty trick. Once the daughter had tied her hair up into a ponytail, the ex-grandmother went behind her back and cut it off against the girl’s will.
Humiliation And Distress
The young girl was humiliated and distressed, and immediately left her father’s house to return home to her mother. When she got home, the mother attempted to fix the haircut, styling her daughter’s hair to look feminine again.
Anger At Ex-Husband
The mother was furious at her ex-husband and his family for cutting the girl’s hair against her wishes. She began looking into legal options to prevent her daughter from going back to her father’s place. The custody agreement was made over a decade ago, and the mother believed it was time to revisit the arrangement, as both children are now teenagers.
Frustrated at the outrageous behaviour of her ex-husband and his family, the mother headed online to vent her anger. Unsurprisingly, the readers were disgusted, with one writing: “WOW. That’s just evil. Your ex-mother-in-law had no right to do that.”
Support For The Mother
Amongst the angry comments against the father, many commenters also offered the mother praise and love for supporting her daughter during the tough time. “Oh mama, my heart hurts for you both”, someone commented. “But I am so, so glad your girl has someone fighting so hard for her.”
Haircut Or Assault?
The main topic of discussion throughout the comments was the evil action of the ex-mother-in-law. “What she did was assault… have you considered filing charges???”, questioned one reader. “I’m pretty sure I’d be arrested if I snuck up behind someone and cut their hair”, agreed another.
