Many people experience uneasiness or misery due to their biological sex and gender identity, which is known as gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is formally known as gender identity disorder (GID), gender incongruence or transgenderism. According to Mohammaed Meomon, gender dysphoria is a product of highly complex genetic, neurodevelopmental, and psychological factors (Meomon, 2016). A person’s biological sex is given at birth depending on the appearance of the genitals. What a person identifies with is called gender identity. For example, a woman may have the genitals of a female but identify herself as a male. She will start acting and showing characteristics of a male. This confusion between gender identity and sex cause severe stress and makes the person uncomfortable. This is a critical issue nowadays because the public is finally getting educated about dysphoria and transgenderism. Many think gender identity disorder is a new phenomenon but it’s been around. That itself leads to more discussions and more feelings towards victims of gender dysphoria. The burden of gender dysphoria can cause a lot of unhealthy stress, anxiety and depression. Many refer to it as being born again in a world full of critics. People with gender dysphoria are not socially accepted and sometimes have to try to conform to what the public feels is “right”.
