the assumption that “you need dysphoria to be trans” necessitates that you have an actual fucking disorder to identify as transgender, and equates just the act of being transgender as “someone with an identity disorder”

dysphoria is horrible. being transgender isn’t.

equating the two buys into the cishet narrative that LGBTQ+ people need to be suffering in order to be valid, and it discriminates against trans people who don’t have access to medical care and/or can’t afford or have treatment for other reasons, and of course the people who experience gender euphoria or non-physical dysphoria

being trans isn’t a disorder. you’re more than dysphoria.
