Anyway, the Wikipedia definition of gender dysphoria is defined by "strong, persistent feeling of identification with the opposite gender and discomfort with one's own assigned sex that results in significant distress or impairment. People with gender dysphoria desire to live as members of the opposite sex and often dress and use mannerisms associated with the other gender. For instance, a person identified as a boy may feel and act like a girl."
It goes on to say: "The disturbance can be so pervasive that the mental lives of some individuals resolve only around activities that lessen gender distress. They are often preoccupied with appearance, especially early in the transition to living in the opposite sex role. Relationship with parents also may be seriously impaired. Some males with gender dysphoria resort to self-treatment with hormones and may (very rarely) perform their own castration and penectomy. . . " [my italics].
In today's politically correct climate, however, if a man identifies as a woman, and vice-versa, we go along with it and agree that they must therefore be what they claim to be. This was even true in the case of Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who identified as a black woman and hid the truth from her NAACP employer.
Now a 20-year-old British "man" is 4-months pregnant after advertising and getting a sperm donor on Facebook, according to The Sun.
Hayden Cross is still in the "transition process" in which she will mutilate her body (having her breasts and ovaries cut away) to make it appear to be that she is a guy, but plans to have a baby before she is mutilated.
Of course, with all the PC BS, Hayden is legally a man and has begun hormone treatment. The rest of the task of going along with her delusion is being put on hold until after she gives birth.
Hayden, who is unemployed, has for the past 3 years pretended to be a guy, was desperate to have a baby--how very masculine of her. She asked the National Health Service (NHS) to freeze her eggs but they refused to carry out the process, so she worried that she would never have the chance to become a
So using her best judgment (to bring a baby into the world without a job nor spouse) Hayden went on Facebook to find a sperm donor. Perhaps she figured that if Charles Manson at the age of 80 at the time, could find a 20-year-old woman to marry him, anything is possible with the Internet.
She was right. A guy brought her his sperm and she used a local hospital's NHS maternity service, and now she's 16 weeks pregnant and plans to have the baby before completing the cosmetic changes to her body to make her think she's a man.
"I'll be a great dad," she said seriously.
She told The Sun on Sunday: "I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I am supposed to be, physically, or a dad. So I didn't feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning."

However, due to her mental illness of gender identity disorder, which has been changed for PC purposes, she admits that she feels uncomfortable carrying a child and struggles with the physical changes.
"I found I was pregnant two weeks after the sperm was inserted. It was mixed emotions. I was happy but I also knew it would be backtracking on my transition. It's like I have given myself one thing, but taken away something else from myself in the meantime."
And the dialogue goes on, never mentioning about the baby, how it might be affected by the fact that Hayden is unemployed and will be on the government dole with a young mother who thinks she's a father.
But at least we're all being politically correct about this whole sordid mess.
