Alcorn, 17, detailed her desire to transition to a female on her Satans Wifey blog, and the opposition she received from her family.
When I was 14, I learned what transgender meant and cried of happiness, Alcorn wrote. After 10 years of confusion I finally understood who I was.
I immediately told my mom, and she reacted extremely negatively, telling me that it was a phase, that I would never truly be a girl, that God doesnt make mistakes, that I am wrong.
If you are reading this, parents, please dont tell this to your kids. Even if you are Christian or are against transgender people dont ever say that to someone, especially your kid.
That wont do anything but make them hate them self. Thats exactly what it did to me.
Alcorn said her family took her to Christian therapists, pulled her out of school, and kept her off social media. They refused to allow her to start transitioning at the age of 16.
Either I live the rest of my life as a lonely man who wishes he were a woman or I live my life as a lonelier woman who hates herself, she lamented.
People say it gets better but that isnt true in my case. It gets worse. Each day I get worse.
The teen hoped that her suicide would help other transgender people and that she wanted her personal savings and money raised through the sale of her possessions to go to trans civil rights movements and support groups.
My death needs to mean something. My death needs to be counted in the number of transgender people who commit suicide this year, she said.
