Is gender dysphoria genetic?

Is gender dysphoria genetic?

  By -- Mar 16, 2022

There is no known cause for gender dysphoria. However, we are sure it is not genetic. That is, a parent cannot pass it on to their children through their genes. It may, however, be congenital--a form of birth defect. For a more complete description as to the possible causes of GD please check out HBIGDA Talk Bologna, Italy 2005
