Gender dysphoria is an extremely rare condition, yet it is pushed into the collective consciousness through the media as if it is very common

For starters, I have no problem with adults who want to call themselves whatever they want, or dress however they want.. I’m a libertarian in that I support your right to do or say whatever you want as long as you aren’t harming others.

What confuses me is that gender dysphoria is pushed in the media at very high rate. It’s reported on daily, it’s in many, many TV shows, movies, and what not. It’s clearly a trendy thing for the media to push.

Looking at the statistics it seems that gender dysphoria is extremely rare

The DSM-5 estimates that about 0.005% to 0.014% of people assigned male at birth and 0.002% to 0.003% of people assigned female at birth are diagnosable with gender dysphoria.[78]

Now this made me wonder, why is this being pushed? What is the reason for this to be constantly pushed into our collective consciousness?

I then started studying other forms of Dysphoria. Such as transablism. Why is this never mentioned or discussed in the news, in TV shows, movies etc.? Why isn’t this pushed at all?

It’s the exact same type of Dysphoria, where a person believes that they should be disabled. That is a person with two legs believes that they aren’t a two legged person and need to have one removed to be who they feel they are.

Made me start questioning why this narrative is so very popular in today’s culture. What is the reasoning?
