That is exactly how all of the trans people in my life and social circles use it.

I would hate to think I am reading as truscum, and I sure hope I am not.

I acknowledge the binary-centrism and oversimplification in the arguments I made, and perhaps I should have qualified those. TBH, I still don’t have the language or understanding I need to discuss all this with the nuance required, and it’s just that much harder when I’m trying to Trans 101 people who can barely differentiate between transfem and gay drag.

I hardly feel up to the task, most days.

Thank you for writing,
