This is truscum, they are trans people (mostly FTM) that say in order to be trans you have to have dysphoria and most of them are transmeds also (in order to be considered trans you have to take steps towards medical transition such as taking hormones or some surgery). AKA "hatekeeping". This is in contrast to the "tucutes" they say that the pre-everything trans ppl are valid, no need to socially or medically transition, aka "transtrenders". Most of the uwu catgirl skirt go spinny TIM variety are "tucutes". So there is a male/female dichotomy here also, with the females lining up (mostly, nothing is 100%) with the "truscum/transmed" side and the males lining up with the "tucute" side. All of these terms come from tumblr BTW.

I've noticed the truscum/transmed communities have a lot more TiFs as well. I have a lot more sympathy for them honestly... they're probably suffering from an actual mental problem (bodily dysphoria) and genuinely believe medical transition relieves their suffering. Doesn't make them men, but at least they have a reason for transitioning that's not based in the shallowest of gender stereotypes...
