Gender incongruence

So thinking you are a woman, though you have a penis, would not fit this definition. The desire to be accepted socially as a woman is not enough, even though most people only show off their genitals to sex partners. There is a separate diagnosis for childhood, but it too requires dislike of ones own sex characteristics and desire for the target gender’s.

The World Health Organization no longer classifies Gender Incongruence as a mental disorder.  Great!  We've been waiting for this for years.  It is now reclassified as a sexual health issue.  Clare has reviewed the language and has a few comments on the new classification as it relates to surgery as a necessary cure.
