    • That's cool that you're a woman now, but having identification that says female is inaccurate, because terms like male and female are biological terms. Maybe that's a flaw with our identification system and ID'S should denote gender instead of sex.

  • It's interesting to me how much of the explanation of your feelings about not being the person you see in the mirror sound like personal struggles I have. For me it is an expression of depression and disassociation. Even though I'm confident that my depression and dissociative struggles are not related to my gender identity, it definitely helps to be able to understand where you are coming from. I can honestly say if changing your gender identity gives you relief from these feelings and makes you feel like a more complete, more realized human being, I can't support it enough. Even if the path to healing is different for you then it is for me, you deserve understanding on that path to healing. These feelings can be extremely painful, debilitating, and draining. No one deserves to feel like this. I sincerely wish you the absolute best on your path.

  • It’s so sad that my American education has engrained in me “communism=bad” through all of my schooling years that even hearing someone being called a communist makes me immediately think they’re a bad person. And I then have to stop myself and rethink. Say, “no. It’s not bad. They’re not bad.”

  • I was immediately aware of this video when it came out but kept...skipping it and avoiding it. I knew in abstract what it was about and what it meant, but wasn't quite sure I knew what to think or expect. Its kinda sad to say I felt mildly 'afraid' of it. After watching it though, I can't help but wonder what I was afraid of to begin with. If anything, it feels 'right'? For whatever that is supposed to mean.

  • Genuinely, watching her in her pre-transition body fade away after saying she was stopping the performance sent me straight to tears. No one has ever really gotten it before like this. When I look in the mirror, I don't see me. I see the body of some cute girl, who I happen to live in. She's not me. I will never be her. But it feels like, for the sake of everyone who knows her, I still need to be her. People like her. People look up to her. If I ever made it in life and someone told me I was their female role model, I would smile knowing I inspired others. I don't hate her. I don't even dislike her. She's just... A girl my age. I honestly think she's cute. I think she's pretty. I think she has a nice smile, and a nice body. But it's not mine. I'm just living in it. The idea that maybe one day I'll no longer feel guilt about the idea of killing her, the idea that one day I'll recognize my own face, the idea that I will be able to leave her shoes and that she won't resent me for it... What a world to live in. Congratulations, Abigail. Here's to your life.

  • It's absolutely amazing to look back at your video just before this one and to see clearly what a knack you have for controlling your voice! I was struck by the rapid change in your voice from the previous video and I'm sure hormones don't act that fast(?), so you must have an amazing ability to talk in the exact same way you did before your voice changed 😮

  • I am not a transperson, but I've been playing roles too for 29 years. Since my childhood, I didn't know anything but playing roles. Because of my childhood with a toxic over controlling family, where there wasn't any single understanding person. In post-soviet, post-totalitarian country. I was raised in family without understanding of human rights, of private property of a single person within family, of private space. My parents are 60 now and they're still playing roles. There was no me - only roles. Actually, at the best times I was proud to play them properly. I assumed this was the only reason to proud - to proud for behaving properly and not behaving, let's say, cringy. These roles itself weren't bad. One of them was a role of a kind and understanding person. But within me it was a fear and shame of letting my control go. So, at the age of 26 I went to therapy. And only then I started to realize something. But even there I continued to play a new role - a role of "a proper therapy client". Only after 3-4 years of therapy I was able to let this role go too. And there, beneath, were other feelings besides shame, guilt, anxiety and "proudness of behaving rightfully". There's all sorts of feelings that I've read in books and could not understand. Funny thing, at some point I was replicating expression of feelings I didn't had. Now my actual feelings are not cringe for me anymore. And also, beneath trauma, there's my own decidions. The ability to make decidions, choices. To see concequences of these decidions, not to be anxious of them all the time. To see reality of myself and other people more clearly. Because where toxic shame and guilt is, there is no choice. There's only one option - to do what is not shameful. There is no me, my free will. Like in Audre Lorde's book. I have the experience of playing roles, and I can understand you at this point. It's so great seeing you happy too.

On behalf of all of us who are trying desperately to live our own truth, thank you. Thank you for being courageous. Thank you for coming out in such an exceptional and beautiful way. Thank you, Abigail, for being you. For being a role model so many of us desperately need. Thank you.

But, I guess that was just the case in camera. Seeing this and your most recent video made me glad that now you are who you are both on and off came. You look happier. Definitely. :) I always look forward to your content. Thank you for being.

  • 31:10 I wasn't going to post this comment, but that joke struck my heart in a strange way. I missed this video when it first came out. I saw the first few minutes, I thought you were hosting another creator who are starting out, and this was their story, and then something else caught my attention and I just never got back to this video. I saw the next video today on capital punishment and, while it was amazing, I was expecting a dramatic costume change the entire way through. I finally came back to this video after the capital punishment video and got caught up. I really liked the character you put forward, and I'll admit I'm a little disappointed to see them go; but I'm glad to actually meet you the way I was supposed to. I hope your job is that much more enjoyable now. Congrats and thank you!

  • Thank you for this, Abigail. I wrote this somewhere else in the thread, but this video has helped me, at the very least, to ask myself some questions regarding my own gender identity that I've been terrified to ask for a long time. Like a lot of people, I looked up to you as a role model, particularly in your expression of bisexuality and queer identity, something I was still growing into when I started watching your content. When I first heard that you were coming out, I was intrigued and excited, while also a little curious. I had never had someone close to me come out as transgender and was still fairly uneducated on what that would look like. But when you stepped out to that David Bowie song (fantastic choice btw) I couldn't help but feel so many emotions at once: Excited, in awe, stunned, and..a bit jealous. Your journey has no doubt been a complicated one and I don't mean to erase the challenges of it by saying this but: That comfort, that joy and peace you have on you now is infectious and I realized that I want that for myself. I've watched this a few times now, and am still trying to put the pieces together, thanks to other resources and hopefully a therapist in due time. Likely my journey will look very different in some ways, but I wanted to thank you. You are and always have been a role model, and your bravery in being honest with yourself and others is going to change so many for the better. Thank you, Abigail. Long reign the princess of TERF island!

  • When I first started watching your video’s, I actually thought you had probably been a woman that had transitioned into a man. You are a really good actor, as I thought in the first half of this video -you were more classically masculine than I had ever seen you before. I thought your big announcement was going to be that you had just had full surgery and gender reassignment to be a man.

    • Changing your name for the opposite gender or similar sounding may feel like still being stuck with the same choice somebody else made. She may feel more comfortable with "Abigail" than sounding "logical" for something that doesn't make sense.

  • ... This is like the fifth time a "guy" I've looked at and gone "I think this man may make me (afab) have to finally face my own experiences in gender, as I feel a strong desire to be like them" has come out as a trans woman. I feel like this might maybe possibly be my gaydar's way of trying to make things too obvious for me to ignore via irony and statements by said women about their experiences.

  • Congratulations Abigail! I am very happy for you! I am a nonbinary woman. You are an inspiration to me. I knew my identity at a young age but still I ended up internalizing shame and hate because of parenting and religious upbringing. I have already left my religion. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. I'm still trying to get rid of internalized hatred. It's weird because I think that I accept myself and I love myself but I still feel the opposite. And one of the ways I think that would help me is through observing and being around inspiring people like you. Thank you for what you do!

  • Just wanted to say that this would never change my opinion of you. When I think of you I think of how much I like your videos and beliefs. You are still the same person to me, not because you are a woman, but because I didn't even consider your gender in the first place, and always thought of you as "a person whose videos I like". I am happy you get to be your true self on screen, and I am not sad the "old you is gone" because you were always you, you are just presenting as your true self now, but none of the things I like about your videos went away. Gender doesn't matter, because you are still a role model, maybe not a masculine one, but a role model in many other ways, and now you'll be a role model for many trans kids as well. So thank you, and you'll always have my support, Abigail.

  • I dont think I'll ever understand the Trans mindset, I don't know if that's ok or not. What I do know is that someone being Trans is none of my damn business or concern. It's their life, their body, their comfort. I do however have a morbid curiosity about it. I would love to converse with someone about it but I'm always afraid of coming off bigoted or something. So I avoid it, for their sake and mine.

  • This video was only the second one I ever watched on this channel. Due to this shortage of familiarity, I had no idea the actor in this video was not the literal same person as I saw in that older video from mid-2019, until I read in the comments about what an amazing job he did of portraying that character. I have now seen one additional video from this channel, a far more recent video than my first, but still older than this one. I now have a far stronger appreciation for that acting talent; in both appearance and mannerisms, Rhys Tees as "The Man Who Isn't There" look a lot more like the Abigail of a year and a half ago than the Abigail of a few months ago does, even though those two Abigails are literally the same person, playing more-or-less the same fictional role! Watching that last video, in the context of having seen this one, has helped me through a significant step in growing to understand my own gender identity. I have long thought of myself as a cis man, and I still do, but I have also long felt uncomfortable with much about my "masculine" appearance. I may or may not come to think of myself as nonbinary at some point in the future. The "man" in that video, the character portrayed by Abigail, is the first live-action example I recall ever seeing of the ideal I wish to strive for: someone who can pass as man or woman almost equally well, and is good-looking as either, but privately knows that only one of the two is the truth. Although it was, for her, merely an awkward in-between stage on her journey to her true self, seeing that version of Abigail inspired me to believe that I, too, may someday be able to fully live my own truth. Thank you. PS: In case anyone is actually reading this, and wants to know which specific other videos I'm talking about, they are "Men. Abuse. Trauma." and "Who's Afraid of the Experts?"

With time, I think I have reached a far more empathetic view of it, and seeing it in that way: I would like to thank you for offering us this adieu. In the end, I find it incredibly kind, and very meaningful. So thank you very, very much for this kindness and thoughtfulness towards your audience.

  • On the topic of "being the same person", I find people depressing if they haven't changed significantly enough over any period of 10 years to consider themselves to be a whole new person at that point. There is something deeply wrong with people that incapable of change, improvement, and self-awareness.

  • So I'm late to the party after not really being involved with FIworld since the turn of the year and only got around to seeing this. I just want to say that I'm glad you felt ready to come out to the channel. Looking back at a lot of your recently old videos (at least the ones my brain can call up without looking), there was definitely a sense of stiffness to how you showed yourself to the camera. I honestly thought it was just how you reacted to the red glow since many people can shift once they have to perform, even if it's to perform as themselves in front of others, but after watching Abby for just a few minutes...well it's obviously not that. Abigail comes across as far more relaxed and natural even compared to the old "I'm going to be honest and talk about myself for a minute" skits from past videos. Away from that - A fantastic script for the first half of the video. As a performer of Puck, I can't think of a better way to end a topic such as this. I look forward to seeing more of Abigail in future videos!

He is the person that broke "mens norms" for me, I learned that it's ok to show emotion and talk about certain stuff that I personally never thought to...

    • If your implying she is faking it so she can get support from trans people that’s kinda fucked up and just to let you know the whole man you wanna be stuff is kinda sounds like it’s based on gender norms so just be the person you wanna be

  • I am a biological boy and I don't know what boy's job you are talking about. If this job is a job society gave me then its not me, so why identify it as boys' job? Being free from society's image on anything I can understand. Being free from biology, has no meaning to me at the moment. I am just a boy. And it means nothing. It only means something in society. And I don't care what she says, so "boy" is nothing. So being free for you means what? Just free from society I guess. So why does it have to change your biology? I am asking this with respect and joy for you, if your truth is truth. Another thing that is interesting is why you do woman movements. You are adopting an image (society's image), just you are adopting another image, not the boy image. So you are probably still not free, just put your brains puzzle in a way that provides relief from your old "equation". Adopting this femininity movement is like saying that girls who dont have this femininity, are not girls. Like not being a bit fat was not an identification mark of femininity in the past. I don't think all women that dont have such femininity, think they are not girls, whatever "girl" means. They would only if they let society apply an image on what a girl is. This is what I think. And I will be judged probably. That makes two of us. Again, with love and respect.

  • “I’m going to show you what it’s like to be trans.” Me, who has known and lived as trans for almost a decade now: “Oh wow I wonder what that’ll be like!”

  • I mean when you go to the doctor, or take medication do you take the female recommended dosages or the male? There are side effects for this . And if you stop taking hormones, how do you feel? does the facial hair come back? I can only see this as cosmetic at most. Eventually, the biology must be accepted . I am just curious because it seems like there is a lot of items being ignored to satisfy this large requirement.

    • Nobody actually ignores the biological aspect of being trans. If you would like to know correct dosages and the effects of hormones, please speak to a doctor or specialist.

  • No clue what's going on. Thumbs up though on the real very nicely worded everything and eloquent. I'm confused but feel nice. So I hope 2021 is a good year regardless of all the major fucking challenges it has in store for us all, and hope you continue to prosper!
