Of course, I lost him over twenty years ago. But tonight, he told me...that I could forget I ever had a brother...and that I could tell my mother...that she could forget she ever had a son.
All because neither of us would no longer tolerate him misgendering me...or referring to me as "it."
All because he called up, as is his wont, to brag about himself again...and mom started telling him about how I had handled myself yesterday at the Convention...and...in true Trump-supporter style...he said..."I do not want to talk about him...I am talking about ME"
And Mom told him that I was "she/her"...and that I should be referred to as such. Then he switched to referring to me as it.
And she corrected him again and he hung up. Then he called back and I answered. Mom refused to talk to him. So then he told ME...that I had been his brother since I was born until I CHOSE TO TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HIM.
And I said to him...oh, hell no, you are not going there!! You stopped being my brother the day you started teaching me how to suck your...well, you get the picture.
I told him...You were JUST FINE with me being a girl, when you were getting something out of it...and now that you don't you are not okay with it anymore...just like a true Trump supporter it is ALWAYS ABOUT YOU.
So then he tried to tell me I had forgiven him...for what happened back then, at our father's funeral. I said, oh hell no...I TRIED to forgive you...YOU REFUSED TO ACCEPT IT. You acted like you had done nothing to forgive and refused to hug me back, and treated me as if I had some kind of a disease!!
And he told me I could forget I ever had a brother, and mom could forget she ever had a son....and he hung up.
This is the typical Trump supporter. So, today, officially, I have lost a brother. For now he has affirmed what I have known for years...he never wanted me as a sibling to begin with.
