Transgender Teen’s Letter Shows Why Visibility Is Important | Teen Vogue:

For many young LGBTQ people, coming out to family and friends can be incredibly freeing and affirming. But that’s not the case for everyone, unfortunately. In fact, it’s estimated that about 40% of all homeless youth identify as LGBTQ, and that many of them became homeless because of family rejection based on their identity. For those who don’t have supportive families, seeking affirmation from others in the community can be so important. That’s exactly what one letter on Reddit seems to show.

I think they never loved the child to begin with, they only loved the IDEA of the child, not the kid him/herself.
