You either accept that some people are dysphoric or you don’t. To accept that SOME people are dysphoric - doesn’t erase biological reality or science. In fact, for most of us it makes it clear how important biology is.
Those that accept BEING a dysphoric person, through gender ideology- have no way of NOT feeling either invalidated or targeted in a transphobic world. If you choose to SEE the world through “gender identity” and ignore biological will feel defeated.
Those that accept BEING a dysphoric person but recognize that...

Biological sex is immutable. Secondary sex characteristics may change to some degree. Nonetheless, biological reality is present. We accept it for what it is and recognize it doesn’t erase our new identity.
Those that struggle to embrace biological reality AND their gender identity will always spot transphobia where it is NOT. This is precisely why transgender people will mostly find transsexuals to be transphobic. Being transgender relies on an ideology. Being transsexual does not.

Transgender is an identity. It is an umbrella term with an endless amount of gender identities. Most of which are ridiculous and make no sense in society. Notice how the concept of gender identity expanded over the course of the past several years. Notice what came along with it?
Those that are transgender today are expected to uphold a radical belief of what gender and sex is. It isn't just about equal opportunities and trans rights anymore. It is about the erasure of what male/female is. It is about the erasure of what science means.
I've never aimed to medically transition to live as a man in society to dismantle what 'male' means. I've never denied the fact that my biological sex is female. I've never demanded or expected everyone to instantly affirm my existence in this world.

I didn't actually medically transition until 2017. Prior to that did I deal with dysphoria? Yes. What took me so long? Part of my story is trying my best do deal with and ignore dysphoria. The other part of it was trying to avoid medically transitioning by any means necessary.
This has a lot to do with how I was raised. My mother was/is the type of woman that believes in trying to do your best and never giving up. She was also not a huge fan of the medicalization that came with a lot of disorders that could be dealt without medical intervention.
So while I did see a psychologist off and on throughout my life. I never was prescribed anything though at times encouraged to be placed on medication. I am grateful that never happened because as you know....there are side affects that come with medication.

This war against @ArielleScarcell is pretty ridiculous to say the least but it is 2020...and the year of stupid must go on. I’ve said this many times but this isn’t just about Arielle. What she is voicing a concern about MANY other people are, too.
“Listen to trans people,” is a complaint often heard in the community when a trans person can’t convince you to agree with them.

Newsflash: People are listening. Are you kidding me? Despite being a tiny community- we are the main damn focus in the LGBT.
Many of you seem to think that because someone LISTENS to you it means they’ll automatically agree with you. You’re wrong. That is not what listening actually means.
