Those diagnosed with gender dysphoria count themselves among the largely diverse transgender community. Gender dysphoria is a treatable disorder that occurs when an individual’s gender identity doesn’t match what was assigned to them at birth. While the causes of gender dysphoria are largely unknown, there are several theories out there, and there has been some research done to support gender dysphoria as a legitimate sexual differential disorder that affects the individuals’ brain. Multiple treatment options are available for the disorder. One of the treatment options for gender dysphoria is all around more successful than the other, but it also tends to be viewed by the general public as controversial. Due to rejection, often by parents/guardians, friends and peers, the suicide rate for transgender people tends to be high, but those that choose the controversial treatment of transitioning, to become outwardly their perceived gender, are usually more content and happy with their lives in the end.
