In brief: A Big Mismatch
Gender dysphoria is a psychological term refering to the distress & unhappiness felt by individuals whose gender as assigned when they were born does not match the gender they identify as - that is, the gender they feel themselves to be.
The american psychiatric association defines gd as emotional distress over “a marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender.”.
