The question then becomes "How -much- distress is this causing you?". In the trans world we have something called "Gender Dysphoria": we do not just "want" to look different, we -suffer- that our bodies are "wrong". Dysphoria is roughly... READ COMMENT

What trans people most commonly do in this regard is to focus on "want" versus "need". I "want" to take another visit to Costa Rica. I "want" to buy a $2000 bicycle that would be better for my back. I "want" to repair my porch, and I... READ COMMENT
