BDD and Gender Dysphoria

Body dysmorphic disorder seems almost identical to gender dysphoria.

In both cases someone has flaws about their body that they don’t like and want to change. I would say gender dysphoria is probably a subtype of BDD where the body parts that make them appear male or female are what they wish to eliminate.

And it wouldn’t be much of a problem for someone who had the money to do surgery, hormones, or whatever else they want to do. After all a person should be able to do what they want with their body.

Only trouble is that it requires getting approval from other humans and having loads of money. So because of this lack of money people are just forced to live with the things they hate.

And that’s pretty much what I’m going through right now.
