Transgender is an umbrella term for people who don't identify with the sex they were assigned at birth
She is transgender, which means she was born a male but is really a female

Urban Dictionary apparently has a lot of transphobes

Adjective, a word describing a person who does not identify with their birth sex characteristics. Because this word is an adjective (a word used to describe a noun), a transgender person shouldn’t be called “a transgender” or “transgendered”. Such examples of a transgender person include:

-A person who was born with a vagina and identifies as a male, is called an FTM (Female to Male) transgender person.
-A person who was born with a penis but identifies as a female, is an MTF (Male to Female) transgender person.

— When you meet a transgender person, do not ask them about SRS (sexual reassignment surgery) or HRT (hormone replacement therapy) unless they are comfortable with you asking them. Also there is no “one” surgery like “did you get THE surgery” There are numerous surgeries for transgender folk
— Do not ask a transgender person when they became trans, they didn’t become transgender because they always were transgender. Instead, ask them when they transitioned (physically), if they are comfortable with that question.
— If you want to know more about transgender people, don’t bother somebody who isn’t comfortable with you poking and prodding them, instead, watch some YouTube videos on the topic, they will answer more questions than you can think of.
trans woman- “Hello. I am a transgender woman and I would appreciate if you would treat me as a normal woman. I would not like the fact that I am transgender to get in the way of how you may perceive me, so just think of me as any other woman thank you.” (and vise versa)

Someone who identifies as a gender other than what they were assigned at birth. Currently, if a baby is born with a vagina, they are assigned female at birth, or afab, and if they are born with a penis, they are assigned male at birth, or amab. Cisgender people identify with the sex they were assigned at birth, while transgender people don't.
Transgender is an umbrella term, containing men who are afab (trans men), women who are amab (trans women) and people assigned either sex that feel like both or neither genders (non-binary or genderqueer). Some trans people may take hormones or undergo surgery to make their body match their gender, and to treat dysphoria. Others are perfectly fine with their body, and only want minor or no changes. However, unless they feel comfortable discussing it with you, it is extremely rude and invasive to ask a trans person if they are on hormones or if they've had surgery yet.
Note that a trans person doesn't have to fit into any gender role. Much like cis men and women, a trans man can be feminine, while a trans woman can be masculine.
Jamie was assigned male at birth, but is female. She is a transgender woman, is taking estrogen, and has plans for bottom surgery in the future.
Max was assigned female at birth, but is male. He is a trans man, but has no plans for hormones or surgery.
Riley was assigned male at birth, but goes back and forth between feeling masculine, feminine, and somewhere in the middle. Xe is genderfluid, and has no dysphoria, except for on days when xe wants to female pass.
Yael, the author of this article, was assigned female at birth, but doesn't really feel like any gender. They are genderqueer, and want top surgery.

Will probably get ratio'd on Urban Dictionary because a sizable chunk of the site's user base is comprised of sheltered boys who feel threatened by the literal preschool-grade concept of treating people with respect despite differences.
Kid Who's Going Through Some Shit And Needs Someone To Talk To: hey man i've been mulling this over for a long ass time, and honestly i really need to tell you something. i've realized over the past few years that i'm transgender, and now that i've sort of come to terms with it, if that's the right word choice idk, i sort of feel more like myself if that makes sense? like just knowing that i can say this to someone now makes me feel like maybe all those sleepless nights were worth it? idk maybe i'm just ranting. i don't know how my parents would react, so for now you're the only one i've told abt this. im really sorry for dumping this on you, i hope youll understand

When ones biological sex does not match up with their gender identity. This includes non binary people. There are 2 categories under the Transgender umbrella. Trans binary, and trans non binary. Trans binary is transferring from male to female or female to male. Trans non binary is going from your biological sex to a gender that isn't male or female. (Ex. Agender, non binary, gender fluid, trans masc, trans fem, bi gender.)
