young people exploring their gender identity need education, not blind acceptance and validity. questioning someone’s experiences and talking to them about sex dysphoria isn’t harassment, it’s literally the right thing to do
Binding every day sucks
This boy is my everything. We’ve been together for almost 5 years. A year into our relationship though, he came out as trans and began his personal journey of transitioning. He has been medically transitioning for almost 3 years.
His birthday is coming up on August 30th. This year I wanted to do something super special for him for his birthday. We’ve been engaged for 3 years and are waiting until he’s had top surgery before we set a wedding date. Most people ask why we’ve been engaged for so long and don’t understand why, but it really isn’t that complicated; everyone deserves to feel like a million bucks at their wedding. As cheesy as it sounds, I want him to feel like a million bucks every day of his life. He’s priceless to me, with or without top surgery. Surgery does not define his worth or value to me, but it does to him. And I feel like self worth is something personal that can’t be dictated by others, especially regarding trans people. I’m in no position to tell him that he should just love himself the way he is, and I never would. But I have every right to love him just the way he is, even if his dysphoria is right there butting heads with me.
I’m reaching out to the trans community on tumblr, allies and anyone else willing to help make this birthday his best birthday ever. I’ve created a secret gofundme account to raise money for the top surgery he thinks he will never be able to afford. I’ve requested he stays off tumblr until his birthday, he has no idea why. I can’t think of a better way to wish him a happy birthday than by completely crushing the idea that’s been weighing him down for 3 long years and proving to him that his top surgery is totally possible. If I could pay for this entire surgery myself, I would. I know there’s so many people out there struggling to save up for their own surgeries but we simply could not afford his surgery any other way, at least not for another 3 or 4 years. I want this to happen for him so bad and appreciate any donation no matter how small. Don’t ever think that any act of generosity, no matter how “small”, is not enough. Kindness is so much more valuable than most people realize. Every dollar and reblog counts and every dollar and reblog is greatly appreciated. Please spread the word!

“average truscum tells a transtrender to kill themselves 3 times a year” factoid actualy (sic) just statistical error. average truscum tells 0 transtrenders to kill themselves per year. Anon truscum Georg, who has never actually been confirmed to be a truscum & sends over 10,000 messages each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted
The ftm tag is gross now a days
So much anger and sadness
YOU ACT LIKE 6 YEAR OLDS OH MY GOD LOG OFF AND TELL YOUR PARENTS YOU ARE SORRY FOR BEING A DISAPPOINTMENT
You’re literally shit posting about an entire movement you aren’t a part of and somehow we are ones trying to make everything about us?
And what binders do you think are best for
So there’s a lot of anger and just downright immaturity in the truscum tag right now and I think you all need to see this picture of grumpy cat to cheer you up
