Im actually a witch who cares way too much about social issues

I think the weirdest sensation in the world is looking in the mirror and not expecting or being surprised about what you see.
I dunno whats causing this. And sometimes it goes belong appearance and I just dont feel like anything is real or like im heaving some weird out of body experience. And when it happens I begin to freak out.
(More under the cut if anyone wants to know and possibly has any resources or any idea how to help me)
I am a dysphoric nonbinary/genderfluid but I still think with 100% of me that transitioning dysphorics should be the trans movements number one priority.
Medical resource wise, yes.
However dysphorics who can’t transition for whatever reason need all the support they can get too, it’s just a different type of support for the most part.
I agree. They definitely do.
The reason I hold this opinion is because of the medical resources. I feel movements for free and affordable healthcare for people who plan on transitioning should come first. For me this is more of a legal thing than it is a social thing.
Thats just at the top of my list personally and I feel itd do a lot for those who arent transitioning to. Trust me as someone who doesnt plan on transitioning I would also really like some more support.
I guess it would be wrong of me to really compare the two. I feel this way because I personally think transitioning dysphorics are more opressed than non-transitioning dysphorics. I know the people altering their body are getting more shit than I am. They dont have resources they need and us non-transitioning dysphorics dont really need medical resources. And I feel I can contribute more to politics in a sense. Like I can vote yes on giving trans people medical care but Im not sure how I can support non-transitioning folks as far as politics go, cause tis mainly a social thing (spreading the word, letting people know we exist, letting them know if theyre being transphobic).
Autism isn’t a mental illness. Autism is a developmental disorder; a neurodevelopmental disorder to be specific. The difference between mental illness and developmental disorders is you can get a mental illness overtime whereas you’re born with developmental disorders. A solider can get diagnosed with PTSD after serving in a war, but a person can’t develop autism overtime. Besides the fact that it’s trivializing and spreading misinformation, it’s important to know this because by wrongfully categorizing autism as a mental illness, it’s implied that it’s a disorder that can develop overtime which then perpetuates awful myths like “shots can cause autism.” Please stop referring to autism as a mental illness and take the time to actually learn about it.
