Gender Dysphoria
Gender dysphoria is a term describing the distress and discontent experienced by people whose psychological gender is at odds with aspects of their outward physical sex. Such people might identify as gender variant, transgender, transsexual, transvestite, genderqueer, androgyne, neutrois or other. Sometimes, the distress is so strong that they undergo transition from one point on the gender continuum to another. This typically involves changes to social role and presentation, and may necessitate taking sex hormones or having gender related surgery.

Gender Incongruence
Gender incongruence is a newer term, gradually replacing gender dysphoria.
