“ But in the very same vain, I do not have to forgive or love or accept someone who hurts me.”
By choosing this, you are the example of the trans community that people will look towards for some undetermined amount of time. A little grace and forgiveness go a lot further than non-acceptance.
Ali is genuinely sorry, and by not accepting his apology and/or forgiving him, you’re breeding hate in both the trans and magic communities. I wouldn’t want that on my head.
