Here is the full text of the article. I have highlighted some salient points, such as the comment about the prevalence of mental health issues among gender dysphoric youth and that it has not been evaluated how these are related (ie does gender dysphoria arise out of other mental health issues?) and that the prevalence of gender dysphoria varies across different countries, which I believe suggests that it is culturally-influenced, and thus more an expression of anxiety than of an underlying innate problematic gender. Of alarming note is that the incidence of gender dysphoria is rising among young women: we are at risk of losing our women!
