Body Dysmorphia

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others. People of any age can have BDD, but it's most common in teenagers and young adults. This is especially present in the Queer community due to the precedent of archetypes which means we are easily comparing our bodies to the bodies of others.

See: Archetypes.
