You know why truscum ideology is harmful? You know why I advocate defining trans identities by gender euphoria rather than gender dysphoria?
Because I am seeing countless people supporting the trans military ban by saying that we are not mentally or emotionally capable of serving because “gender dysphoria is a mental illness”
Let me reiterate that
By defining trans identities by gender dysphoria rather than gender euphoria, you are giving ammunition to people who want to discriminate against us and lock us up
I have horrible dysphoria, I have struggled with mental illness… But I’m not mentally or emotionally unstable specifically because I’m trans. I would never join the US military out of moral objections, but just… Think about the implications of this shit
and fuck truscum, seriously. They keep us under the thumb of transphobes
