F1000 Commentary: Treatment of adults with complications from previous hypospadias surgery / Is DSD the same as transgender?

No. Transgender refers to a situation in which a person feels that the gender assigned to that person at birth (boy or girl) was not the right one for him or her. DSD is about physical sex development (how a person’s body formed), not about gender identity (who a person feels himself or herself to be).
