Gender dysphoria

Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Indistinct awareness of sexual identity
Gender identity disorders
Conflicting sense of sexual identity

In the case of mild gender identity disturbance, the person is aware of his or her assigned sex, but experiences discomfort and a sense of inappropriateness about it. When disorder is severe, the person has the sense of belonging to the opposite sex. In childhood girls or boys have a persistent and intense distress about their sex and their anatomic structures. With boys the grossly feminine behaviour may lessen during the adolescence, but up to two-thirds of the boys with the disorder develop a homosexual orientation. Only a minority of females retain the masculine identification and of those only some develop homosexual orientation.
