  •  DSM-IV has Gender Identity Disorder (0+ / 0-)

    and Transvestic Fetishism.

    DSM-V is relabeling GID as Gender Dysphoria and still has Transvestic Fetishism.

    We "GIDs" all seem encounter nothing but the "few" control freaks and bastards in the field, all our lives. And I lay most of my major depression at their feet, for not allowing me to transition when I was young (i.e. denying me hormones because I didn't make their shrinkly penises salute.)

    What did allow most of us to transition was the invention of the Internet and the ability to buy hormones from offshore pharmacies without prescriptions from shrinks. Taking the power to deny us hormones away from the shrinks saved my life and thousands of other lives.
