You know, I’ve always wondered how truscum would react to cis people who’ve experienced dysphoria,would their heads explode or what
repeat after me
cis people don’t experience dysphoria
they experience dysmorphia
And that would be?
Dysphoria is a disconnect from your sexed traits. It manifests in many different ways, such as depression or anxiety, and it can lead people—had led many people—to self-harm or suicide. When you experience a disconnect from your sexed traits, you often don’t recognize them as belonging to you. You have trouble believing that your reflection is yours. You experience distress when forced to touch or look at your sexed traits. Even something as small as the sound of your voice can trigger your dysphoria, because it doesn’t sound right. You are not the gender you were assigned at birth. Your gender and sex do not align, causing dysphoria.
Dysmorphia is different. It’s when a person is very unhappy with a specific part of their body. They don’t like the size of their penis or breasts, and wish they were larger or smaller. They don’t like their hair color, eye color, weight, the shape of their body, their facial structure. They are not disconnected from these traits; they simply are not happy with them, and would like to change them. They do not feel like they are the opposite sex, or a different gender. They just want to alter a part of themselves, because they aren’t satisfied with how that part looks. This can be taken to unhealthy extremes. Dysmorphia has nothing to do with sex or gender.
we stood with our Christian brothers and sisters. We stood with our Yazidi brothers and sisters. Where is the international outcry now that a massacre of 70+ Sunnis in a mosque happened?
There is also the issue that American states with abstinence only sexual education also tend to have higher rates of teen pregnancy. Turns out the less informed one is about a subject in its entirety, including protective measures of it, the less likely they are to handle it in a safe way.
