I'm 20. I live in Russia. I don't like it at all. As long as I remember myself I've been planning to leave. I would rather die than grow old here. That would most likely happen as in Russia gender transition is not illegal but extremely difficult to even begin and likely to have consequences such as lasting unemployment and I am unwilling to take that risk. I would also prefer to get therapy abroad. So basically leaving the country soon is a matter of not killing myself and also spending as much of my lifetime being male and mentally stable as possible, i.e. living. This is urgent. Within 4-8 years it will be possible for me to green card marry my LDR boyfriend in the US. He has a decent house in a liberal area. This is my only chance to leave Russia relatively easily, early and legally. However life in the US is fucked and I know many americans who are terrified to imagine their future and desperate to immigrate to EU countries. That scares me. I'm pretty sure right now it's still better than Russia but like. Would US residence help me when actual US residents are all jumping ship? There are no easy ways for me to immigrate to the EU. Absolutely not straight from Russia as a young poor unskilled postgraduate with no local contacts. Please do not point me to EU immigration or work permits 101. Is ANYBODY okay with being a US citizen? Is US uninhabitable? Am I basically just doomed?
