the problem with tumblr is that it teaches people to politicize everything, including things with no political connotations. so you get 13 year-olds still in their phase where they think they can talk to animals and have unicorn imaginary friends, being taught that this makes them oppressed and that they should hate anyone who challenges this idea.
Only experiencing social dysphoria doesn’t make somebody trans.
I’m not saying that sex dysphoria accompanied by social dysphoria doesn’t happen, it’s a very real thing (I have social dysphoria as a result of having sex dysphoria). But, if your discomfort solely stems from how your gender is viewed by society and not your sex characteristics, you’re dealing with internalized sexism, not being transsexual.
Have you not read the stories of people trying to come out, explaining to their parents what being trans is, the parents google ‘transgender’ and find this ridiculous bullshit? Because it’s happened.
this. i’ve been out for 5 years but my mom was doing more research on what being trans is a little while ago so she could understand me better and unfortunately came across a link with the pronouns and countless gender labels
it was embarrassing as fuck and i had to explain to her that i wasn’t going to end up identifying as a poly genderqueer demigirl or ask her to call me bun or fae and that wanting to transition is solely for my wellbeing and she said it was going to be hard to take me seriously for a long time because of what she saw
Wow it’s almost like when you appropriate being trans so that you can garner some extra special points you’re actually hurting people with dysphoria
"truscum harm the trans community"
We harm it more than people who try to spread the belief that being trans is a choice?
Gender =/= gender roles
Gender non conforming =/= non binary
Crushing the binary =/= being trans
Dysphoria =/= hating your body
While these things aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive, they should not be considered synonymous.
tbh im still laughing about that “my doctor is a truscum” post
yeah were you surprised your doctor is a grown person professionally trained in treating medical conditions and that they believe transsexualism is a medical condition rather than some kind of cutesy teenage plaything???? sURPRISE welcome to the real world
are you going to go see a therapist next and get angry when they wont believe you’re a cat-dog-chinchilla-volcanokin????

I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, but if most genderspecials were to experience sex dysphoria even for a day, they would understand how devastating and mentally draining it is to have to deal with your physical sex conflicting with what your brain is expecting you to have. Being legitimately transsexual isn’t a fun personality quirk like they make it out to be.
sorry im a trans guy…cant talk about my own community cause im a trans guy
