Top Definition
An abbreviation of the word transgender (also transsexual/transexual). "Trans" is shorter and more informal than "transgender."

A trans person is someone whose gender is not that which they were assigned at birth.
When Noam was born, the doctor said they were a girl, but as they grow up, they realize that they aren't a girl. Therefore, Noam is trans.

REGs may be:

-transphobic, arguing that the T in "LGBT" be dropped or other such rhetoric

-transphobic, arguing that one must experience dysphoria to be trans

-transphobic, arguing against nonbinary existence/validity

-intersexist, arguing that intersex people do not have a place in the LGBT+ community

-and many more

I really wish these REGs would stop acting like dickwads and start respecting that other people have different experiences than them

Lower-case: ð

When used, it is generally pronounced as a "th", a "d," or it is silent.
Faroese: Hvat ber til at gera um kvøldið?
