The Village
Wrabel Lyrics


No, your mom don't get it
And your dad don't get it
Uncle John don't get it

And you can't tell grandma
'Cause her heart can't take it
And she might not make it

They say, "Don't dare, don't you even go there
Cutting off your long hair"
You do as you're told

Tell you, "Wake up, go put on your makeup
This is just a phase you're gonna outgrow"

There's something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh

There's nothing wrong with you
It's true, it's true
There's something wrong with the village
With the village
There's something wrong with the village

Feel the rumors follow you from Monday all the way to Friday dinner
You got one day of shelter,
Then it's Sunday hell to pay, you young lost sinner
Well, I've been there, sitting in that same chair
Whispering that same prayer half a million times
It's a lie, though buried in disciples
One page of the Bible isn't worth a life

There's something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh

There's nothing wrong with you
It's true, it's true
There's something wrong with the village
With the village
There's something wrong with the village

There's something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh

There's nothing wrong with you
It's true, it's true
There's something wrong with the village
With the village
There's something wrong with the village

Alex Collins

My name is Alex, I'm 16 years old
I'm suffering from gender identity disorder from the age 11.
1 year ago I told my mum that I am trans,
She made fun of me and my dad too,
I am Muslim and I live in Arabic country,
So they are DON'T accept trans people.
I tried to kill myself alot of times, but I lived.
Alot of people hurt me, assault me, calling me a sin, trying to kill me because I am a transgender.
I just wanna say that the guys who are accepted by their parents and started transitioning you are so lucky and I am happy for you.
Sorry for my bad English.
All love
_Alex

I just... I can't stop crying.

And I can't stop my dysphoria.

And I can't stop my dissociating.

And I can't stop having panic attacks looking in the mirror.

But even so, Im still me. Im still a boy. I'm not broken.



Petrified.Pixels

My name is Kyle

Im not a girl or a boy

I feel my whole life i have been shoved in a box

My family will never understand me and it is hard

But i have my friends

I have people who care

My gender is not defined by my genitals or what i was assigned at birth

I am me

Dulcima Brooks

Hey.

My name is Dulcima and I am a girl.

I AM a girl.

I’m not trying to be one.

I am one and I always have been.

Who cares what my birth genitals said.

I am a girl.

If people don’t accept you,

I do.

Promise.



Illegal crayon dealer

(Ali pronounced something like ollie pronouns they/them)

Hi so basically I thought the phrase "rapid onset gender dysphoria" was just a term for when dysphoria I guess sets later in life?? I know I worded that wrong but I don't know exactly how to explain what I thought but recently I learned it's a discriminatory phrase that means "if one person is trans than their peers are going to more likely turn trans"

So basically I'm confused I didn't really start feeling dysphoric until like a few months to years ago (I'm 16 currently and I can't tell exactly when I started feeling uncomfortable with my body) is dysphoria like something that you have to experience early in life? Cause I didn't really feel it until like teen years I guess and as a child I was a "girly-girl" I liked pink wearing dresses all that

So I'm wondering if this is actually a phase or if I'm taking being trans because I haven't always felt this way

(Sorry that this was so long)

To all the other colourful birds with unsupportive parents:


I'm your parent now. You can call me whichever gender-neutral term for parent you want, or you can call me dad if you're more comfortable with that!

Edit: Breakfast: Monday- pancakes Tuesday- bacon and eggs Wednesday- French toast Thursday- waffles Friday- hash browns and toast Saturday- cereal Sunday- brunch

Lunch: Monday- grilled cheese or any other sandwich I guess Tuesday- burgers (of whichever type you can eat) Wednesday- hot dogs (or tofu dogs) Thursday- Mac and cheese Friday- KFC or Carl’s Jr Saturday- seafood Sunday- brunch

Supper: Monday- ice cream (or if you can’t have ice cream, I can find a substitute that’s just as tasty) Tuesday- we have tacos and burritos because taco Tuesday Wednesday- any fast food of your choice Thursday- we’ll have a salad bar (stuff for fruit salad and taco salad included) Friday- Olive Garden Saturday- you can either make whatever you want or ask me to make whatever you want (my skills are limited to breakfast foods and grilled cheese) Sunday- either Chinese food, pizza, or soup.

*if you don’t like any of these options for can’t eat anything, we can figure something out :) I myself just basically eat instant ramen*

Sincerely,
Ash, your masc non-binary virtual parent

UPDATE: all these comments say Charlie because at the time that's the name I went by. Just to save any confusion



You Know Who

@Frisk Flowerfell Okay!!
(he/they) : Myriad colored their hair the other day, they made the dye himself!! He is very confident with themselves, as they should be to be honest.

(they/them) : Oh them? yes they're my friend Myriad, their name is really nice. They also bought themselves a guitar yesterday - Myriad is so cool!

(he/him) : Myriad is by himself at the moment, just sitting by his chair. I think he likes to be alone, it's peaceful.

(she/they) : Oh no, Myriad couldn't come today because they got herself into trouble! I hope she comes whenever they can. I was so excited to see her with their new hairstyle today.

(NOTE: Pronouns don't define your gender but choosing the one you feel most comfortable with is also important!! You can even use neo-pronouns if that's what makes you feel like you. -- trying out new pronouns and see what best fits you is a first step to start discovering who you are so i really hope this helped even a little bit :) if you want i can give more sentences/examples. lmk!! + im so proud of you, keep going <3)

Hey!
I‘m non binary afab and I really connect to this song, since my parents don’t allow me to cut my hair short or wear a binder.
I came out last year in June I belive and since than they try to „make me normal“ by pushing gender norms and female pronouns / words (like girl,...) on me.
I really have a hard time keeping myself alive, since all my uncles , aunts, cousins,... are extremely conservative. I only came out to my close family I live with and only one of my siblings supports and accept me the way I am.
I really am happy that I have supportive friends, but because of covid I’m mostly alone with my family ,which is constantly and aggressively misgendering me on purpose.
I‘ve been talking to them the whole year trying to convince them to let me be myself, but they refuse and even calling me an „unicorn“ or „alien“ .
This lead to sh and other toxic coping mechanisms.
It’s really hard for me to hide my chest and stuff, and hearing that cis straight girls are using this song and claiming it’s about depression makes me even sadder.
Idk why i‘m texting this but I felt like sharing a part of my story for others to read.

Hi, I'm Daniel.
Just like many of you here, I'm trans.
I came out to my mom last year (she's very accepting) and I'm currently beginning my social transition at school.
I'm afraid of what I will have to deal with in the future, being from the US state of Ohio.
I'm afraid, but I'm ready to deal with anything that could stop me from being myself.
To anyone struggling with unaccepting households/family members-- I'm sorry. We're all here for you. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and I hope you'll get there. I myself recently came out to my transphobic grandparents, so I understand the fear you must be feeling. (Only come out when it's safe for you, please.)
To all of my trans siblings-- I love all of you. We can defeat transphobia by standing together and not giving up.
Much love,
Daniel :)



Jekyll Gotta Hyde

I’m Blake.
I’m 15.
I’m FTM, questioning if I’m a demiboy.
I came out as FTM to some people 2 years ago.
I was allowed to come out publicly in November.
I’m happier than I’ve ever been.
I’m not allowed to start T, or get surgery, but I have amazing people around me who love and support me.
I want you to remember, you are loved. I love you, you’re amazing. You’re not alone. I’m here for you.
Love, Blake

I cried when he said trans rights without even saying trans rights

@Sabrina Z My mom acted like I was a different person when she found out I was trans on accident. I'm still your child, I'm still the same person you raised.

Sabrina Z

For the transphobic people trying to take this over and say it’s about depression. Stop it. Just stop

Just a person

As a straight, cis-gender girl whom this song has a different personal meaning to me I completely agree. Cis people can listen to the song and enjoy it but trying to openly spread the narrative that this is about depression is wrong. I don’t understand why we can’t just let trans people have this one song.

Dragon Master 4320

@nobody You can like a song and know the meaning behind it. That's fine, just don't use it as something different

Shadow666

@nobody I’m speaking of the people who blatantly try and take it away saying, “this isn’t about being trans, it can’t be about being trans.”
