Avantika My parents had different views, We are from Kerala, and Both my parents are very well educated, and have General understanding on what is a transgender and accepts Transgenders.
In Big Boss Malayalam, there was a transgender contestant, whom my Amma loved a lot. But when it came to me.. When I said my amma... Recently ( I have cameout before her, multiple times, 11th, Btech 1st year, and so on.. ) I have completed by btech now, and lately on everyday basis we were having this conversation,
And all of a sudden, she screamed liked, "Why do u wanna be a girl? You like sex is that why? U make tiktok videos for making money? How were you making money?" sort of questions.
I really felt sad on those questions, especially cause my amma asked this right on to my face, and I started thinking what would others be thinking?, if my own mother has such questions.
For reference, I'm working as a Web developer now, and while doing my btech I used to do freelancing and was Selling my codes online.
On the other hand my father is a very calm, cool and loving guy. When I opened up to him, that I wanna be a girl, he was like "That's, good, but think again, cause I think you like girls so much, that's why u want to be one", Its like You like Virat Kohli and U want to be a cricketer, not like U love the game of Cricket so much, hence u want to be a cricketer, Its more or less like a Infatuation for Virat Kohli, it will fade away with time". 😅
I mean, I was so struck by it I didn't know what to say.
