the only “mold” we’re “fitting” is the medical qualifiers for having transsexualism.
you know like
because when you claim you have cancer
but you don’t have a growth of mutated cells replicating without stopping in your body
and we say well you don’t have cancer
I don’t get what’s so hard to understand about ‘if you don’t have dysphoria, you can’t be diagnosed with gender dysphoria’.
Claim to be a tricycle as much as you like.
But claiming to have seen the tooth fairy doesn’t necessarily make the tooth fairy real.
I can’t remember where my opinion is on this matter, but anyway I just thought I’d drop in to say that there aren’t even standard medical qualifiers for transsexualism. (even the wording in the DSM-IV is far from medical.) They’ve changed over time, are still pretty sexist, and have other failures.
More importantly, I was assessed by three psychiatrists in two countries for GID, two of whom thought I was trans and the other of which disagreed - partly because I didn’t want a hysto or bottom surgery (I’m wary of health complications from hysto, and the latter is currently not at a stage I find satisfactory), did not have typical ‘masculine’ interests (I hate sports with a passion and I like writing), was attracted to guys, and got heavily triggered and close to tears when he asked me about my sexual fantasies; which is apparently not a male reaction to have. He decided all that made me a girl.
So even within the medical profession, they don’t always agree, which usually isn’t the case (more or less) for things like cancer.
