hanaikun asked:Many authorities do not regard Gender related Dysphoria as a mental illness. Including the NHS. Which is unfortunate because I would rather not have another reason for people to tell me my illness is a lifestyle choice. I have a medical condition that I have absolutely no control over to the point of being near debilitating at times. It ain't fun and I'd like it if insurance companies would choose to cover my surgery in the future.
Never considered it that way before. Hmm…most trangendered people I know would be angry if it was considered a mental illness.
