I haven't kept up on the current literature, but back when I was in treatment they got about halfway there, in that they acknowledged that many people start starving themselves in an attempt to make their bodies less assertively female. But this was treated as something which needed to be fixed by making people accept their assigned gender, rather than investigating for inchoate gender dysphoria (which was pretty deeply pathologized at that time as well, of course).

If contemporary thinking about gender had been available to me when I was fifteen, my whole life might have been different, but there's too much water under the bridge now...
