It can be. And sometimes gender envy isn't really obvious - it's more of a feeling for me. Before I had the language to describe what I was feeling as dysphoria I was really idolizing this one male celebrity. I thought he was so handsome  and wished I could be like him but was sad I couldn't. At the time I thought it was a typical "celebrity crush" type thing, and just me wanting to be charismatic and funny like him instead of awkward and lame (I was around 13 and the puberty and dysphoria combo was hitting) but looking back, it was definitely a gender thing.

Really only you can answer that question. There can be a lot of different reasons for gender envy adjacent feelings, that's just my experience as a trans guy.
