theres actually a word i learned for people who are “trans by choice”
i wish tumblr had more of a “educate the ignorant” attitude as opposed to “send death threats to the ignorant”
There are trans women who literally think that trying to induce severe dysphoria in trans men is okay because they are trans men, I cannot take this fucking website at times.
You dont share the same view as someone? Cool. Don’t try and fucking set off dysphoria when you know just how bad that is and then try to justify it with “TRANSMISANDRY XD”
"let’s see….would I rather have been born with no dysphoria, or do I wanna suffer with this the rest of my life.."
stop glorifying being trans. These people suffer and you’re turning their suffering into your personal joyride.
The transphobe is you.
It really bothers me how FTM’s feel the need to use stereotypical, hyper-masculine phrases to try and sound more butch. Like, “what’s up bros?” “Hit me up yo.” Please, dont try to hide your queerness behind douchey bro-ness. Aspiring to be a typical shitty dude-man-bro shouldn’t be among anyone’s life goals. And you sound like you’re trying too hard.
What you’re saying reminds me of how masculine gay men shame camp gay men for “acting”, and how camp gay men shame masculine gay men for “acting”. Unless you’re putting on an act, there’s not a problem with either one.
I can understand that you want to point out “hey, you don’t have to be butch if you don’t want to”. I couldn’t be a “dude-bro” if I tried, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, it’s another thing to shame a trans guy for something that’s natural for him. If being a “dude-bro” is natural to him, let him be.
(Also, it’s not cool to assume that all trans men are “queer”. I’m gay and I don’t like to use that word for myself. I can’t imagine how insulting it would be to refer to a straight trans man as “queer” without his permission.)
I get really uncomfortable when some bloggers on here are so outright douchey to the “trans” people without dysphoria, face to face, in writing and all that. Yes, they’re acting childish and they’re hurting the trans community, and how we’re seen by people outside of it. But don’t fall as low as them, acting even more childish. It won’t help. Don’t fight fire with fire, remember?
Yeah, there are definitely people on here who take it too far.
Gotta love all these new posts today that truscum are the ones that put trans people in danger.
I’m pretty sure that denoting that transsexualism is a choice, making it a catch all term that anyone can decide to be, saying that being trans is based on gender roles and trying to depathologize transsexualism is much much more likely to cause suicide than a group of mostly polite people telling cis people to stop appropriating our medical condition and invading our safe spaces.
I am writing this to let you know that as a trans person I am embarrassed to be lumped in (merely because they are trans) with people who attack you verbally and wish you bodily harm. I hope you realize that this trend on Tumblr is not indicative of all trans people. I can’t speak for everyone, but I know there are numerous trans bloggers out there who find this trend to be problematic. I’m sure you’re a wonderful person. If you’re not, I’m sure it has little to do with you being cis.
P. S. thank you for continuing to support trans issues even if you’ve had these encounters.
Waiting for people to apply the word “demi” to disabilities, so Tumblr will be overrun with “demiaustistic” and “demidepressed” people who claim that kind of matching up with certain stereotypes means that they’re kind of disabled.
The day that starts happening, I’m drinking myself into a stupor.
i would actually prefer this because at least then they’d be using another word so we can weed out the people who actually have a disability or a mental illness as opposed to the ones who self diagnosed because they took an online test
You don’t understand: They’ll then use that to claim people who are actually dealing with the full-blown disorder are privileged over them because those people who are actually dealing with it are actually taken seriously by medical professionals.
Like the Tumblr kiddies who act like dysphoric trans people are privileged for having dysphoria right now. Read: Wanting to kill or harm yourself because of a fuck-up of biology is apparently a privilege now.
