Okay I'm going to vent about something I've seen some trans people do. Thread.

There are cis people who are our "allies" that are shitty allies. Who talk over us and claim that they know more about our experience being trans than we do.
Then there are cis people who are actual allies. Who march with us, who call out bigots, and who use their voice to elevate our own.

Just because a cis person is talking about dysphoria and how much dysphoria sucks from their experience seeing their loved ones and friends...
...go through it, does NOT mean they are claiming to speak for all trans people. The thread I just saw was a cis person basically saying that "dysphoria really sucks so please support your trans friends". And another trans woman told her to STFU and not talk about dysphoria.
