(So in case you haven't heard, after years of strenuous work and lavish Big Pharma junkets, the American Psychiatric Association has officially decided to rename "Gender Identity Disorder" as "Gender Dysphoria".)
Advocates have spent years lobbying the American Psychiatric Association to rewrite or even remove categories typically used to diagnose transgender people, arguing that terms such as “Gender Identity Disorder” and “Transvestic Fetishism” promote discrimination by broad-brushing a diverse population with the stigma of mental illness.
“The label of mental defectiveness really places a burden on trans people to continually prove our competence in our affirmed roles,” Kelley Winters, a Colorado scholar who has helped lead the push for changes, said.
See Third Swing: My Comments to the APA for a Less Harmful Gender Dysphoria Category in the DSM-5 for Kelley Winters' critique of the APA's relabeling game.
the proposed criteria are unreasonably reliant on gender stereotype nonconformity. Five of eight proposed subcriteria for children are strictly based on gender role nonconformity... Behaviors and emotions considered ordinary or even exemplary for other (cisgender) children are mis-characterized as pathological for gender variant youth. This sends a harmful message that equates gender variance with sickness. As a consequence, children will continue to be punished, shamed and harmed for nonconformity to assigned birth roles.
