Truscums / transmeds have always been "peakier" than most TRAs. They're the group that most "transtrenders" would call TERFs even though they're "trans" themselves. They're just one hair shy of being GC because the lie affects them personally and they can't give it up or their worldview would shatter.

They want to believe that surgically modifying their bodies makes them the sex they long to be. Well, no it doesn’t. They’re still deluded misogynists, just more committed to it. They’re also experts at mental gymnastics. There is barely any difference imo and they are just as gross and despicable.

Some of them do admit that the surgeries don't actually make them the opposite sex. I think what everyone thought transsexual meant prior to ten years ago is what "truscum" is now.

The funny thing is that I’ve heard (from some part of the online trans community, I think the transmedicalists themselves) that there’s a “tucute-to-TERF pipeline.”
