Non-Binary People with Gender Dysphoria

We know there are male and female in this world, we also know that there are some people who are born a boy but deep inside feels like ‘he’ should be a girl, and vice versa. DSM-V calls them Gender Dysphoria (or Gender Identity Disorder?).

Have you heard of the non-binary (NB)?

I think this is a good read, to come to understand we never want to see the world in only Black or White, having dichotomous or All-or-Nothing thinking. It applies to gender too. There are people who feel they do not belong to either.

Yes, Non-Binary People Experience Gender Dysphoria

I’m just hoping to raise some awareness here. So that mental health practitioners can be more sensitive, and perhaps one day, the public, too.
