Just something i decided to write in response to some truscum stuff.

Here's the comment version for those who can't read it for whatever reason:

I don’t even get why people think dysphoria should be a requirement for being trans

Like you don’t need to hate or even dislike the way you are to be happier being different, like I happen to have dysphoria but that’s just me.

When it comes to hormones if they're happier they're happier, how they identify doesn’t really matter, its just a jerk move to force someone to not do something that makes them happier when they’re harming no one

and when it comes to pronouns and social recognition, well, who gives a shit, we made up pronouns and words, we should be able to use them as we please, as long as we don’t harm people with them.

Cis people aren’t going to respect us more because we keep out people with “silly” pronouns. They have already have found tons of their own reasons to hate us that have nothing to do with non-standard pronouns.

It just seems so needless to me.

    That's completely true! That's honestly part of what I was referring to in this post. Just like depression can range from lack of motivation to full-on suicidalness, so can dysphoria.
