It's not just gaming though, is it? It's gaming to the point where it becomes an addiction

Gaming itself is not a mental illness, it's a hobby. Gaming to the point where it becomes an addiction is. Changing your gender is not a mental illness, it's a choice. I assume when you say 'changing your gender' you're referring to gender dysphoria, which, even still, is not a mental illness, it's a mental condition.

As stated by the APA: 'A psychological state is considered a mental disorder only if it causes significant distress or disability. Many transgender people do not experience their gender as distressing or disabling, which implies that identifying as transgender does not constitute a mental disorder.'

It is. Gender dysphoria is a mental illness.
