a human being whose gender identity differs from her/his genetic sex...male to female (M2F) or female to male (F2M)...s/he may have gone through gender/sex reassignment surgery (post-op) or not yet (pre-op) or never (non-op)...

not to be confused with: intersexed - one born with mixed or ambiguous genetics; crossdresser or transvestite - one who dresses in the attire of the opposite sex, for males anything from panties or stockings to dresses and makeup; drag queen or drag/king - one who performs in attire of the opposite sex, usually a gay male or female entertainer...

transgender is simply an umbrella term for all of the above...the vast majority are crossdressers...NOT transexuals...wearing a dress, however pretty, does NOT mean that a guy is a transexual...and transexuals can be straight, gay or bi...

i can't believe the crap that's been written here about transexuals...it's all about gender identity and NOT just expression...
me...technically, i'm a M2F transexual, but i prefer to be known as a "transgedered woman"...since it's about gender identity and not sex...and i'm straight...i only date men...

think about that...if i dated women i'd be a "trans-lesbian"...
