How to use "Gender identity disorder" in context?

There are many different ways to describe gender identity disorder. The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) defines it as "a distinct gender identity that is not consistent with the individual's assigned gender at birth." This can mean that a person's gender identity does not match the gender they were assigned at birth, or that the person feels a different gender than the one they were assigned.

The cause of gender identity disorder is unknown. It may be caused by factors such as childhood trauma, genetics, and environmental stimuli.
