Being poor and trans is much much harder than being well-off and trans, but if someone tried to pull rank and say you weren't really trans because you've never suffered trying to get welfare with an old ID, nobody would take it seriously.


Sometimes people like to play the game of "suffering makes you trans" then turn around and reject people who can't afford to medically transition like that makes your life easier. It's instructive to think about what gatekeepers count as the true trans experience.
