Cmv: I don't agree that sex and gender are different

What I dont understand is if you have body-dysphoria we treat the mind through therapy and psychology to combat it and hopefully eliminate it or at the very least lessen its symptoms. Body-dysphoria is considered harmful and we strive to cure it.

But if you have gender-dysphoria we treat the mind by agreeing with the dysphoria and modifying the body to fit that. It is not considered harmful but a good thing and something to be celebrated and identify as.

It seems harmful in the long run to trick the mind/body into believing its a different sex so that it fits your perceived gender rather than psychologically and therapeutically combating the dysphoria that is telling your mind you are not who you are.
