... or that their for-real boy's brain is horrifyingly trapped in a despicable girl's body. Which is also offensive to women, but perhaps even more disturbingly so because the belief is based on such profound self-hatred and misogyny.

That's what i truly don't get about truscums... They come so close by admitting being trans (or more accurately dysphoria) is a mental issue/ mental illness but then they turn around and say they are real women/men and should be allowed to invade women's spaces. If you realise that it's "only" in your head... How can you still claim to be a real woman despite your completely male body? And yes, even a male body who is cosmetically altered to superficially resemble a woman's body is still a male body. After all that dude who made himself look like a tiger through surgeries didn't actually become a tiger. It's so frustrating!
