No cases before the 1970’s? What? Yes there are, Lili Elbe for one.

Also depression is a purely genetic phenomenon? What?

When was Lili Elbe diagnosed with gender dysphoria? Also, I never said there were, literally speaking, zero trans-identified people prior to the 1970s, but that it hadn't taken off until that general date. Before the 1970s, when sex roles had become more nuanced, trans-identified individuals were hidden, an underground phenomenon, and there were almost none of them to begin with.

Depression is genetic. That's the general consensus within medical communities and institutions.
