I wonder how she would actually feel if her limbs were removed, would it help her mental illness? Maybe she would be happier, maybe not.
Awful way to be living regardless.

Caviar I was just going to say the same thing....I'm genuinely not sure how this is different from someone wanting gender reassignment surgery? Why is this a severe mental health problem, but that isn't?

Gender identity disorder is classified as a medical disorder by the ICD-10 CM and was also in the DSM-IV TR. The current DSM-5, however, removed the diagnosis and replaced it with an updated diagnosis called "Gender dysphoria". Controversy exists as to whether GID should be classified as a mental disorder. Many transgender people and researchers support the declassification of GID as a mental disorder for several reasons. The classification of GID as a mental disorder pathologizes gender variance, and reinforces the binary model of gender. Diagnosis of a mental disorder can also result in harmful stigmatization of transgender individuals. In addition, there is growing evidence that transsexualism has biological causes, such as brain differences, genetic abnormality, and prenatal exposure to hormones, in addition to psychological and behavioral causes.

On a slight side note, I'm wondering if someone who willingly has a healthy limb removed would be eligible for government disability assistance?
No judgements, just curious.

Exactly, Wikidwitch, I wondered that too. People with gender dysphoria do.
