Shannon, who has since been known as an anti-LGBTQ activist, recounted how her world was turned upside down when her husband, after 15 years of marriage, confessed his crossdressing fetish.
The revelation blindsided her, and despite her discomfort with his behavior, he refused to change. This decision led to the fragmentation of their family, leaving their three children caught in the midst of the turmoil.
One of the most distressing moments Shannon shared was her husband’s offer to breastfeed their daughter. “He offered to breastfeed her,” she recounted. “He kept bringing it up, like, pressuring me. I said, ‘No,’ [and he’d say,] ‘I can help you.’ It was always, ‘I’m helping you,’ and ‘I’m trying to understand you and trying to give you a break.’”
The situation escalated further when her husband fashioned a fake pregnancy belly with large breasts to “comprehend” her struggles. Despite her protests, he paraded around the house in front of their children, causing distress among them. Shannon’s son even took it upon himself to destroy the disturbing prop.
Shannon went on to reveal a shocking revelation – her ex-husband had been secretly taking cross-sex hormones during their marriage. To mask this, he attributed the changes to medication for his obsessive-compulsive disorder. Moreover, Shannon uncovered that her ex-husband had engaged in online affairs, further straining their relationship.
As a devoted stay-at-home mother who homeschooled their children, Shannon found herself financially unsupported by her ex-husband. Despite his substantial income, she received only $500 a month, leaving her struggling and ultimately moving back in with her parents.
The court’s decision to halt her homeschooling efforts was another blow, forcing their children into public schools against Shannon’s wishes.
The most heartbreaking aspect of Shannon’s account is the toll her ex-husband’s choices have taken on their children. She tearfully revealed the children’s struggles with embarrassment, alleged abuse in their father’s care, and the shocking reality of six suicide attempts among them.
Navigating the legal system during their divorce proved to be equally challenging. Shannon expressed her disbelief at the courtroom debates revolving around “preferred pronouns.” Even in Texas, a state known for its conservative values, she found herself grappling with custody battles that put the well-being of their children at risk.
