I am not. I am a mental health counselor at an extremely diverse campus. I work with trans students very frequently (we have one of the largest trans populations of any school in America) and so my criticisms are based around the complaints my students have shared with me. Just as you don’t have to be a person of color to understand colorism, or a woman to understand how sexism can be perpetuated by women as well as men, you don’t need to be trans to observe the ways that transphobia is perpetuated within the community.The trans youth I work with would disagree with you. I’m the voice telling them “You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on jaw surgery to be a man, you always were one” instead of egging them on as they destroy their lives.
