Body Dismorphia Disorder, when the individual believes with all their being that their physical body is “wrong”, that they’re not really supposed to have legs, or they’re actually meant to be blind, or they were born in the wrong body becuase they’re NOT confined to a wheelchair, is rightly diagnosed as a mental disorder that requires cognitive behaviorial therapy to overcome.
Gender Dismorphia Disorder, when the individual believes with all their being that their physical body is “wrong” only as it applies to their genitals, is NOT diagnosed as a mental disorder and requires reconstructive surgery to correct.
The distinction, in my mind, is fallacious and logically incoherant.
Having said that…
I don’t live in your skin. Apparently you don’t “feel” the way Western/American Culture says men are supposed to “feel”. (Whatever that means…) That you arrived at the conclusion you did is your decision. I wish you luck, but I don’t believe you will find it in the long term. I personally believe you need change your mind to become comfortable in your own skin. CHanging your skin will only lead to a never ending quest to continually change your skin until it “catches up” with your ever-changing and ideal vision-of-self; which it never will. But you are under no compulsion to believe as I do. I don’t expect you to. I have no ill will towards you. However, please don’t ask me to celebrate your “transition”. It’s your thing, not mine.
Just as I don’t live in your skin, you don’t live in mine.
