“Age regression is a mental reversion to a younger age. Transage reflects a longterm incongruence between one’s age identity & their chrono age.”
Could this possibly be real? We hope it’s parody.
From Evie Magazine:
Transage Activists Now Claim “Age Is A Social Construct,” Just Like We Predicted Would Happen
We were originally told that transgender people just wanted to be accepted into society and use whatever bathroom they chose. Next, we were told that males who considered themselves to be trans women, like collegiate swimmer Lia Thomas, simply wanted to compete in women’s sports. We’ve now arrived at the point where we’re called bigots and transphobes if we don’t agree that men can get their periods and get pregnant too. As the transgender craze got more and more irrational, many of us were left wondering what was next. We speculated that, at some point in the future, people would claim they were transage. It looks like that moment has arrived earlier than expected.
The foundation of the transage claim is that “age is a social construct,” and just because someone might biologically be 18 years old doesn’t necessarily mean they identify with that age. In November, a Twitter account called @agedysphoria shared a thread about what transage is and why transage people wanted to be widely accepted into society. It sounds like something straight out of a dystopian novel.
“Transage people have no intent of trivialising age regression. In fact, many transage people are also age regressors,” she writes. “Age regression is a mental reversion to a younger age. Transage reflects a longterm incongruence between one’s age identity & their chrono age.”
Presumalby, “chrono age” refers to one’s chronological or biological age. @agedysphoria says a person’s transage experience “can be related to age dysphoria.” She shares a graphic that explains what transage is:
“Transage means a person’s age identity is different than their chronological age or chrono age. Transage people can be any age and are not all younger than their chrono age. Transage people may also fluctuate between ages, be multiple ages or be no specific age.”
Transage is simply the identity we use to explain our experience because it is the most accurate way to describe persistently identifying as an age other than one’s chrono age & typically feeling an intense desire to transition in full or part to living as one’s identified age. pic.twitter.com/qhFQiMrI33
