Non-passing FtMs will never have the same stigma as non-passing MtFs. Whether it's fair or not, there will always be people that consider MtFs to be weird sex pests. The actual problem is that the people who genuinely have GD probably need mental treatments, and something to fix their vitamins, minerals, and hormones. Instead they are probably being pushed toward surgical intervention by delusional fetishists.
They don’t have the same stigma because there is less of them overall, always has been, and they’re less vocal probably because of that. I don’t think they’re as defensive in the real world either. They have less to gain by transitioning than MTFs (sports, clout, stronger than women, mixed sex prisons etc etc), men just ignore them and gay men generally don’t even bother trying to pander to them like retarded lesbians try and do to MTFs. Wouldn’t call it just a stigma, it’s not anyone else’s fault MTFs have the highest rate of sexual assault and kid fiddling, even higher than normal men. TLDR: they’re seen as less threatening because they literally are less threatening.
Agree about the GD thing, I know a girl that had severe dysphoria and she just couldn’t take it anymore so she got her breasts removed and that solved her problem completely. No doctor would recommend that to her, they kept trying to put her on hormones but she hesitated taking them fortunately for her. She still calls herself a woman and dresses like one, it’s just for some reason she really had an issue with her breasts and now they’re gone she can live a normal life. She would have killed her self by now if she took the doctors recommendation and transitioned.
