I made an updated version of this image (which apparently made it around Tumblr without me sharing it here, and I’d appreciate people pointing to this new graphic) that more accurately represents the issue, since the original implied that gender dysphoria is the main struggle of trans identitified people, rather than a response to violence that is not a universal trans experience.

New text:
