a trans take 

binary trans/trans medicalists insistence that being nonbinary/genderqueer (at least without accompanying it with medical transition) means you're not trans and our more general belief that people can be "fake trans" or that detransitioning is a betrayal of some kind all contribute directly to terfs weaponization of detransitioned people send toot

a trans take 

like we're not responsible for anything terfs do to perpetuate violence against us but we sure asf are responsible for treating members of our community and people who aren't sure if they're members of our community with some basic decency. u kno

a trans take 

@myconidiosyncrasy yes
very
yes
true

whatever truscum say and think doesn't make gender eu/dysphoria stop being real

a trans take 

@furkachi *slight* side tangent but Fucking Hell truscum's insistence that "you have to be dysphoric to be trans" and their use of that to justify their nonbinaryphobia has always been fuck off wild to me?? while i'm sure nondysphoric nonbinary people exist and they're Absolutely Trans, almost every single nonbinary person i know very explicitly experiences dysphoria. it's such a shitty illogical argument

a trans take 

@myconidiosyncrasy very much so; I actually started experiencing dysphoria *after* I began identifying as trans

like, maybe someday people can finally agree that gender euphoria is much more important to being trans than dysphoria and finally move on >.>

a trans take 

@furkachi i very firmly agree with this take honestly. people's insistence that we define ourselves by what causes us pain is pretty shitty honestly
