truscum are literally the “i’m not like other girls” of the trans community they think being trans is something shameful and don’t like trans people who refuse to take shit from cis people so they try to distance themselves from other members of the community as much as possible. and it’s sad.
"maybe the wider than expected demographic appeal of my little pony is a bellwether for the destigmatization of femininity" — me, in 2011, being the most wrong about anything i’ve ever been in my entire life
if dysphoria = trans and no dysphoria = cis then how do you explain my cis friend who has bodily dysphoria
from what she’s described to me it’s the same kind often experienced by trans people but she identifies as 100% female (her assigned gender) and isn’t comfortable identifying as anything else
truscum seem to like ignoring the fact that situations like this exist and that gender isn’t black and white, no matter how much they wish it was.
