Anonymous asked realsocialskills:I’m autistic, and my mom outs me against my will to anyone she has known for more than 5 minutes. How do I get her to stop?realsocialskills said:Unfortunately, I can’t think of any way to get her to stop that seems likely to work. I’m posting this in hopes that someone else has ideas.Have any of y’all succeeded at getting a parent to stop outing you?
My mother only stopped when I became an adult, no matter how much I begged her to stop when I was a child. She forever believed she was justified and in the right, and would not have changed the past if she could have.
This is a major part of why I spent the majority of my adulthood thus far saying, “I don’t believe in labels.”
Medical abuse and outing being too much of a social risk was the entirety of it.
Sometimes the people who say they don’t believe in labels are saying it and trying to convince you of it for survival.
