A queer individual that holds the belief that you require gender dysphoria to identify as transgender.

The beliefs of some truscums can be a bit extreme, though most aren't. The one thing all truscums have in common is that they believe you must experience some form of gender dysphoria (no matter what form of dysphoria, as long as it is existent) to be able to identify as transgender.
"Kalvin Garrah is a truscum, meaning he believes you need dysphoria to be transgender."

"I personally fall under the truscum label - I believe there must be gender dysphoria behind your transgender identity."
