In between transitioning and having a strong personality, some people at university like me and others dislike me. So, we were deciding how to divide up the groups to take the photographies for the invitation cards of our graduation event. The whole situation got fairly bad because there wans't any group willing to accept me and in the end, it was decided by luck of draw. The losers get to take the graduation picture with me. So, though not to a ideal solution, this is concluded, but something else is going on as well.
Anyway, at the beginning of that situation, I was trying to do something to fix it, so it wouldn't come down to a random pick. One of the groups had a person who was unsure if whetever they would graduate or not. In addition, the people who were in that group were folks I had helped with many things at University before transitioning, and though we lost contact I thought things would be fine. So, upon talking with one of the people of that group, I mentioned about the situation of the guy they included in their list, it being that under the circustance he didn't graduate, I would logically be included in their group for the picture. I added I was told this by the people who were organizing the affair.
Two hours later, I received a hateful msg through my cellphone and a hateful e-mail, each from a different person of that picture group. I had no know misunderstandings with them before transitioning. So, anyway, there weren't any threats, but their tone was overly rude and both of them said, as I understood and in a summary "We aren't doing this because we discriminate agains't you, we are doing it because we don't like you. Don't talk with us anymore, ever"
It was not worded nicely like that, of course, as that is just the general message. They resorted to a low tone and swear words to convey the message, as well as included personal things about my life which they got hold of somehow and twisted around with the intent of being hurtful. So, they said they really hate me now for reasons which baffle me and the problem is, one of those girls lives in the same building I do and sometimes I meet her. Frankly I don't know how to react after she said so many mean things and though there were no physical threats, the whole thing was so sudden and out of the blue I don't know what else could come out of it. So far I have meet her at University once, I stared back at her and she looked back at me with insecurity. Today, she was parking her car just as I was waiting for the elevator, I noticed she made a point of taking long enough to park until the elevator arrived and I got up.
Sometimes we meet at certain activities of our University as well, usually she has been making a point to avoid me and it is really anwkward to be in the same room as someone who won't acknowledge your existence, but I manage. I am avoiding contact as well because I sense I am being disliked, and I suppose if she spoke with me I would be polite.
There is the chance we meet at the elevator, if so, what should I do? Remain quiet? Stare ? Say hi maybe?
