okay there are two things that I want to make absolutely clear right the fuck now:
- physical dysphoria is not the only kind a person can experience, there is such a thing as social dysphoria (which is gender-related extreme discomfort towards the way others perceive you— for example, you might be totally fine with the way your body looks but might be extremely uncomfortable with the way people associate your body’s traits with a particular gender).
- you DO NOT have to experience any kind of dysphoria to identify as transgender. all you have to do is be transgender. boom. done.
