Have you found yourself questioning why you support Caitlyn Jenner but mock Rachel Dolezal even though some people are suggesting that they're going through similar experiences at the moment?

Well if you have, that's because Transgender is a thing, and Transracial is not.

Rachel herself made the comparison on Today on Wednesday, so we decided to ask the experts what they thought about the whole Caitlyn Vs. Rachel debate!

GLAAD made a pretty clear statement regarding gender dysphoria and its place in this viral news story, saying:

  • "For decades, nearly every major medical and psychological authority has agreed that gender dysphoria is a very real and distressing experience for hundreds of thousands of transgender people in this country. Comparing decades of research, medical consensus, and the experiences of thousands of trans people to this story is like comparing apples and oranges.
  • ​The American Medical Association has clearly stated that treating gender dysphoria is medically necessary care, and hundreds of thousands of people in the United States and millions around the world are transgender. When trans people transition, they are becoming their authentic selves and are not deceiving anyone."

Interesting!
