Emely Porter

Gender identity disorder has been variously theorized by the doctors and psychologists. The most common understanding of this disorder is that a person going through this problem is not satisfied with his gender and constantly wants or desires to be the opposite sex. Such persons feel that if they would have been the other sex, then they would be more contented with life or life would have been easier and better for them. In terms of psychology, this disorder is also referred to as transsexuality or transvestism. Many people suffering from this disorder do not really feel that they have any disorder at all.
