Gender Dysphoria and Transitioning

Dreams of discomfort with your own gender, the conviction you're really the other sex, and the desire to change sex. I heartily recommend a trial run (or twelve) in the dreamworld before you seek a new body on the material plane. Safer than surgery, and cheaper too.

Dreams are dreams. So this list also includes dreams about gender transitioning, whether surgical or... otherwise. Sometimes very otherwise.

RELATED TOPICS: gender in general - gender-bent dreams where you HAVE changed sex - intersexuality - butch & femme vs gender - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
