Because She Was Trans

A short story about a short life

Because she was trans
Her father took to beating her
With a metal rod, when she was eight.

Because she was trans
Her mother took her to the preacher
Who told her of her sin, and predicted a dark fate.

Because she was trans
The social worker came and got her
Away from her violent father, before it was too late.
