Dysphoric women need both resources that address and alleviate our personal psychological suffering and action taken to uproot the misogynistic and homophobic social conditions that gave rise to our dysphoria in the first place.
There is so little readily available information about dysphoria caused by trauma, internalized homophobia and misogyny that many of us only realize what our actual problem is after transitioning, which means a lot of time, energy and money lost.
Our dysphoria needs to be better understood and researched and information about it needs to be more widely available. We need access to treatments that actually work, including therapy and community support groups.
We need to be able to talk openly and freely about our experiences of dysphoria, what helped treat it and what didn't. Sharing what we've learned helps other dysphoric women find relief and support.
At the same time, since our dysphoria arose from oppressive social conditions, it makes sense to work to uproot and change those conditions so that such suffering doesn't arise in the first place.
Which means making a society where lesbians, butches and other gender nonconforming women and women in general can live freely and safely and have no reason to dissociate from our bodies.
