Not All Transgender People Have Dysphoria – And Here Are 6 Reasons Why That Matters

I've put some thought into this from time to time. We all have our own experience with how we identify. there are definitions and terms and such (I have a glossary of sorts somewhere on this blog), but the reality is, I am trans because I know who I am. Having negative feelings about my male body does not validate this... nor would the absence of those feelings invalidate it.

None of us are the same. The comment on this post below is 100% correct. This all extends to the fact that not all transgender people identify as being transsexual, or the other way around and none of this by extension invalidates anyone.

Anyway, great article! Give it a read:

No all trans people are dysphoric, but not all trans people are transsexual. One of the problems of having an umbrella definition of transgender or trans or trans*, end up silencing some and their experiences. Another which the article focuses on, that generalize terms creates the impressions everyone are the same.
