Could anyone explain me what’s the matter with truscum and tucute, like, what does it mean and so on, ‘cuz uh-eh-uhm, I’m kinda fresh here and uh, don’t want to be an uneducated dullard and well wikipedia isn’t very helpful.
Truscum are trans people who define being transgender with dysphoria and believe dysphoria is 100% needed all the time in order to be trans. They come from a movement that refers to itself as “true transsexuals” (hence where truscum comes from) and they have footholds in many cities throughout the USA which help gate keep and prevent people that they don’t think are ‘trans - enough’ to be trans.
Tucutes are a small handful of trans and nonbinary people on tumblr who are anti-truscum. The term was coined by idislikecispeople and is typically where people who have been harassed by online truscum flock to.
apparently we’re all a facist subset of HBSers who knew
this person is misleading you. truscum don’t have any power over who gets to call themselves trans, we’re all tumblr bloggers mostly aged 15 - 25 for christs sake. truscum don’t believe that you have to be dysphoric every moment of the day, we believe that if you are 100% comfortable with your sex assigned at birth you are cis. also we believe that being trans is a medical condition basically if you have dysphoria - treat it with transition, if you don’t - you don’t need to transition. we don’t sit around harassing tucutes. it’s actually the other way around mostly, see here.
jumping in from the medical side here: I’m truscum because I see it as a safety issue. Dysphoria specifically around sexual organs is the primary mental symptom doctors look for when helping a person establish if they’re trans or not. Specifically, most doctors will check certain factors like hormone levels to see if something biological is tripping the mental issue. If there’s nothing and ONLY the dysphoria is present, that’s treated with transition. Many, many trans people speak to the effects or HRT on their own mental health, saying that not only did it help their dysphoria, but helped treat depression they didn’t even realize they have. When you go through transition when that isn’t what you need, you’ll CREATE dysphoria. The following result is many people who de-transition and then shame the process, which not only scares people that need that treatment away from it, but sets back public and medical understanding and patience for the process. There’s also a large issue with people claiming they are trans when they feel no dysphoria, and it colors public and medical opinion to the needs of those who are actually trans and suffer dysphoria and need treatment. My personal experience with the truscum community has been that of information, explanation, and education, where I have only seen tucutes bashing and shaming truscum and trying to place distrust in the medical community trans folks need, which again, is more of a gatekeeper than truscum trying to spread information for the safety of our community.
Women's Rights Activist: Now let's tackle the delicate issue of rape. There are too many instances of women being raped and something needs to be done.
Men's Rights Activist: Absolutely - but we feel that it is also important to note and bring light to the fact that males get raped too, and women can also be rapists.
WRA: Absolutely - what do you think Egalitarian?
Egalitarian: I think with careful attention to all victims of rape, and not specifically turning it into a gendered issue, we can focus more precisely on what causes rape and try to counter it. We believe that demonising one group of people isn't the way forward, especially with such sensitive topics like rape.
