While I don't believe there is any such thing as "true trans" or "real trans" there are men with dysphoria and men who are autogynophilic. Is the first group accusing the second group of appropriation?

Honestly, you can't make this shit up.

there are men with dysphoria and men who are autogynophilic.

There's extensive overlap between those groups, though.

I have no doubt there's a lot of overlap. I once read a story by an autogynophilic who developed dysphoria. He desperately wanted to get back to his normal life, but it took a lot of effort and avoiding porn to clear his head. I don't remember where I read that, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I remember reading that somewhere. I feel like it was maybe a Reddit post linked here somewhere. A young guy trying to find his way out of a porn addiction that had led him to believe he was trans. He was in a lot of pain, I felt for him. I think as regards porn there’s a lot of brain shit going on with young men. And yes, “brain shit with young men” is clearly a medical term.
