Thank you so much for this response, Amelia! I agree completely, and I actually wrote another piece on this subject (that I'll prioritize publishing today) on why transition isn't a last resort, if you'd be interested in seeing it!

It was painful to write, but it is more than worth it if it helps cis people approach more trans people with compassion.

I am a disabled binary trans man who primarily writes about feminism, queer history, trans issues, science communication, healthy masculinity and public health.
