I’ve gotten glasses :D

And I am on testosterone injections now! So I only need an injection every 3 month, instead of using gel every day. It sucked, because I was afraid of getting it on people accidentally.

Still haven’t heard back from the surgeon. I’m getting pretty nervous, ‘cus she said that she had time in August, but there’s not many days left, and I honestly don’t expect her to ask me to go to Germany with no more than a couple of days warning :( Not that I would mind, I really want to go.

I haven’t even gotten the ‘O.K’ for surgery yet. Maybe she doesn’t think I want/need the surgery?! I’m constantly nervous for getting a rejection, as I don’t really have an alternative to her. I can’t afford someone more expensive, and she really is the best at that price. I’ve already seen 2 other danish guys go to Germany while I’ve been waiting :( It’s nervewracking.

Mom’s watching TLC again. I’ve just seen a woman freeze her face nerves because she didn’t like that her forehead wrinkles when she lifts her eyebrows.

I think it’s fine. People can do whatever they want with their body and stuff. But facial expressions are important, and like it or not, wrinkles ,when you are surprised, smiles or are angry, is a natural part of facial expressions.

And I don’t think it should be shown in television as a good or even neutral thing, to hide away the face’s gestures.

It doesn’t say anything good about you if you don’t like your face when you smile, because it behaves exactly like every other face on earth.

Maybe it just creeps me out. Or, well, it creeps me out. I like facial expressions.

This is why I couldn’t keep a diary as a kid. I’m bad at updating.I’ve gotten my name changed. It have actually been month since the change, I just haven’t gotten around to write it. I finally went at got it changed the last place yesterday, at my bank. That’s it. My name should have been changed everywhere now. Woo.

I got into my dream education, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to start. I was hoping to get top surgery in the summer vacation, but I was out too late. And now she’s on summer vacation for 2 weeks, and all I’ve been told is; at the end of August, if they accept me.I really, really, really want to know if I can get my surgery with her, or else I need to start looking for a surgeon again.
In Denmark we get a state education grant for going to school, but if I’m getting surgery in August and need like, 2-3 weeks off of school they might throw me out. Without that, I have no income, and I had to take a loan in the bank  to get through summer vacation if I wanted to do anything but to sit at home. It’s great that I can live for free at my parents, but I don’t want to be a burden, economically.And I have to start paying the loan back in August. Thrown out of school in August = No Income = Bad relationship with the bank.And I’m not even guaranteed top surgery yet ,__,No wonder I have trouble sleeping -_-;

Seriously, stop calling it ‘gender appropriate toys’, like girls playing with cars or boys playing with dolls are being innapropriate.

I also tried Dark Souls 2. I absolutely despises that game. I killed all the NPC’s though, that was fun.

I got an incredible respond for the last ‘comic’ thing I made, and I’m really happy that people could use it!
It actually helped me a lot too, since I find it easier to draw than to…

I don’t know where you are from, which might make this a tad more troublesome a discussion, and I don’t know of DCM, but where I’m from, people won’t get a trans diagnosis if they do not suffer from dysphoria because of their body. That’s what I’m basing my opinion on. The actual rules in my country.
You aren’t stating facts. It’s different here, and it could be changed, whereever you are from, if people believe the use of the term should match that, which we use here.
I’m not misinforming people when I say that trans means bodily dysphoria in any way. That is how it is here :)

So yes, I’m truscum, but I believe everyone is allowed an opinion, so if you disagree with this, then it’s all right! If you agree with this, then I hope you don’t feel alone in your opinion!

If anyone wants me to draw something else, send me an ask, and maybe I’ll explain it in drawings!

1. Why do we need a safe space form nondysphoric trans people? They don’t oppress us…

2. People don’t just spend shit tons of money on changing their body without really knowing they want to.

3. Since doctors don’t define transgender as someone with dysphoria, I’m not sure how you defining it that way will help doctors know what you mean when you say you’re trans… And honestly if your doctor doesn’t ask you more questions beyond you saying you’re trans they’re a shit doctor anyway.

unpackingprivilege Actually, when non-dysphoric people claim that being trans is about gender roles, or that we don’t need medical help because dysphoria is supposedly a result of cissexism and we need to learn to love our bodies, that is oppression.

Even if it isn’t necessarily direct, spreading misinformation about the needs of dysphoric individuals causes real-world consequences. Participating in activism groups which seek to abolish the status of transgender as a medical condition deprives medical options from those of us who are poor and relying upon insurance to cover things for us.

There are a lot of us that are told when we are younger that we can simply present how we want and don’t need to change our bodies, but that fundamentally is a major misunderstanding of what it is like to be a dysphoric trans person.

Being trans is not a medical condition. Having dysphoria is. They are two different things. They are often related, but not every trans person is dysphoric and not every dysphoric person is trans. And btw doctors who actually work a lot with trans patients and who know what they’re doing agree with me, not you. Oops.

unpackingprivilege, please don’t just state things as facts. If everything was hard-cold fact, then we wouldn’t even be discussing it this much on tumblr.
Truscum belive it is a medical condition, and dysphoria is a requirement to be called trans. That is what we believe. You are entitled to disagree of course, but there aren’t anything written in stone as it is right now.
And I have to say, the doctors I go to do diagnose trans as people who dislike their sex. Doctors disagree on a lot of things, so we can’t really use it as an argument.

Nah but this makes a lot of sense. Like, let’s not even worry about truscum/anti-truscum politics for a second and just talk about why there should be a separation in certain situations. We have different needs. Non-dysphorics don’t need to treat dysphoria, dysphorics do. That’s a pretty huge difference. When I enter a transgender space, as a dysphoric person, I want to speak with others who have my experiences. I want to talk to people about how they deal with dysphoria, or about the surgeries I want to get, I want to speak with people who are like me. That’s kind of the whole point of having a space specific to a minority — as a trans person with dysphoria, I want to talk about being trans with other trans people who have dysphoria. Because at the end of the day, things that we (dysphorics and non-dysphorics) have in common are so unimportant to me, like…yeah it suck sbeing misgendered, but what sucks more is that my body is fucking wrong and non-dysphorics don’t understand that. If I want to talk to someone about how much being misgendered sucks, sure, I’ll join a trans space that includes non-dysphorics, but sometimes I just really want to talk to someone who understands what I’m going through and understands how much it sucks when I’m having a great day and happen to look in the mirror and catch that my chest doesn’t look perfectly flat.
