Percy. Seventeen. Transmasculine genderqueer (he/him/his pronouns pls). Panromantic ace. Australian Nerdfighter. This blog used to be multi-fandom, but now it’s mostly Orphan Black. (I regret nothing). You should send me an ask or something.
John Green romanticizes mental illness and basically has his readers under the impression that love conquers all and a relationship is all you need to overcome mental illness.
And I hate him for that.
He’s written whole books arguing exactly the opposite of that ????? Try reading them maybe
Just once I want someone to answer the question “what is trans if not the presence of gender dysphoria?” seriously. I ask it over and over and I get a million excuses as to why they can’t explain it right now or it would take a novel to explain. Seriously? Even if it would, you can’t summarize a novel? What could it possibly be that makes you “identify” as trans that takes that long to explain?
I’ll answer it.
“What is trans if not the presence of gender dysphoria?”
Being trans* means that you don’t identify as the gender you were assigned at birth. It’s that simple. You don’t need to create requirements about how much dysphoria people experience for some arbitrary decision about who is “trans enough”.
