Trans Express on gender dysphoria and transexualism

The Trans Express tumblr blog also contains posts about research on – and debate about – transsexualism, gender variance and gender dysphoria. 

There has been a significant shift in the way scientists look at various transgender lives. Gender dysphoria is no longer considered a mental illness ("gender identity disorder"). The general consensus is that to the extent trans people do suffer from mental illness (like depression and suicidal thoughts), these are caused by the invalidation of the surrounding society, and not by a transgender identity.
