Someone says you’re a friend. They act like it. They stand with you. They may be—lying:
Curiosity phase: There is a curiosity phase many people go through, want to get in close and find out what makes us tick. After the curiosity is satisfied, maybe a few months or a few parties, they fade away, taking all your disclosures with them, often passed on to others who are real friends.
Gynandromorphophilia: female, male, shape, love; attraction to someone sexually of one sex and another gender, e.g., characteristics of both sexes such as someone womanly with a penis, transgender. It’s real, as real as being gay or straight or bi. And it goes unnoticed a lot. But society frowns on this, so gynandromorphophiles may experiment with this attraction, then feel guilty for it later, leaving.
To advance a liberal or faux inclusive agenda: This fake friend may purposefully take us around to see other friends, show us off. Then when the point is made, fade away or create a problem that leads you to tell them to leave, then blame it on you that you pushed them away.
Those who lie in wait: I’ve seen it happen over and over, many times. Someone seems like he/she may be a real friend, then after some years pounces with the “informed” insider knowledge of a friend to enlighten us with how we really should be A or B, instead of whatever we think we are. With me, it happens that they later sandbag me and preach that I really should be about gender role, not a need to be the other sex, that I, like Rosa Parks, should stop causing trouble and accept my place. They already know I believe the need to be non-binary is a different thing from needing to be the other binary, but—it’s their beliefs that mean more to them.
Vampires: Some people just want to suck the blood out of you.
Trans people are socially hated, and that’s not going to change while we allow sex-and-gender non-binarism to go unnoticed, not made okay.
