Dysphoria is an experience trans, genderqueer, and non-binary people have. It describes discomfort, loathing, anxiety, and depression revolving around one's social gender role and/or physical sex characteristics. It's a very serious experience that leads to larger anxiety/depression problems, depersonalization, thoughts of suicide, social withdrawal, self harm, etc.

Gender dysphoria | Feeling like you are a gender that is not the one you were assigned at birth.

Body dysphoria | Being uncomfortable with certain body parts because they remind you of the gender you do not identify as. Whether it be your no-no square or your feminine hips.

Social dysphoria | Discomfort in the gender the people around you see you as, and how they treat you based on that.
