To be trans is to have a mental disorder (gender dysphoria)
Being transgender isn't the same thing as having gender dysphoria. But, I mean, what's your point? Oh yeah. Trans = mental disorder = trans people are crazy = being trans isn't real. But that's not how mental illness works.
Nothing about it is beautiful, powerful, strength, a celebration, or joyful.
It's also not ugly, weak, weakness, mournful, or sad. Being trans is just a normal human condition.
It sucks and is something that needs to be handled with therapy
It sucks because of transphobic assholes like you who won't let us live our lives in peace, and who try to make transitioning impossible. And don't delude yourself. There is no "therapy" that will make me feel like a man. The "therapy" for my condition is transitioning and living as a woman. Because I am a woman, whether you like it or not.
It's not something that should put a person on a pedestal.
I don't want a pedestal. I just want to live my life in peace. I don't care if you don't really think I'm really a woman. Just leave me the fuck alone about it.
