I’ve heard this word a lot
Since I started doing all of this shit.
Truscum is a bit of a doosey, at least–
To me–hillbilly beckifer.
Here is the definition I’ve found on the
SJWWIKI??? There is a wiki
For sjw’s now!? wtf ya’ll
It should just be
All the same dictionary
We all agree on.
I am not too keen on something
That calls itself “sjw” in the first place–
“Truscum are people who think dysphoria is an essential component of being trans and anyone who doesn’t experience it is fake, “appropriating transness”, a “transtrender”, etc. They very often exclude non-binary and agender people as well.”
I feel like I have experienced
Truscum beliefs and behaviors
But like most anything, I don’t know anyone
Who would identify themselves
As truscum. I think most of the
Trans people I’ve met are really internally
Transphobic and are insecure about
Anyone who’s experience differs
Dramatically from theirs, somehow
The differences make theirs feel
Illegitimate, but the only reason you’d
Feel such a way is because people
Make you feel like you have to be
Something that you aren’t, so
Take a shortcut with me
That you are what you are,
You might not ever understand
What that is, but–
You are definitely NOT supposed to be
Something you aren’t.
Nobody wants binary trans folk to become
Enbies, and nobody on the enby spectrum
Wants to be told who to be either.
Please stop telling people
Who and what to be, and how to be it–
I’m doing my best to express
This message in as many different ways
As I can and I just can’t seem
To explain it well enough
For the violence and the exclusion and the
Petty grievances to stop
Everyone is enough–
And nobody needs to be a cop.
