Focus on the Family offers talking points to explain transgender issues to your kids

Talking to Your Children About Transgender Issues. (Focus on the Family)
Jeff leave this quote hanging out to dry.  A few years ago, a gay identified psychiatrist was asked about gender confusion and responded, "The truth is we actually don't know what it is. Is it a mental disorder or does the cause of gender dysphoria lie somewhere else?

Yes, Dr. Drescher said this, but Focus on the Family omits some helpful context.

Quoted in What 'transgender' means, and how society views it.  (USA Today, 8/22/2013)

Dr. Drescher, whom Focus on the Family refers to not by name but as "a gay identified psychiatrist", was a member of the the American Psychiatric Association work group on gender identity, which recently revised the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
