Transgendered individuals are those who have a gender (a mental measure of masculinity, femininity, or something else entirely) which does not match their sex (being physically male or female). This section includes resources for transgendered individuals, and information about transgenderism in general. Transgendered Society.
Being transgender is independent of sexual orientation: transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual, etc. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex. Transgender people are sometimes called transsexual if they desire medical assistance to transition from one sex to another. Transgender is also an umbrella term: in addition to including people whose gender identity is the opposite of their assigned sex, it may include people who are not exclusively masculine or feminine. Other definitions of transgender also include people who belong to a third gender, or conceptualize transgender people as a third gender. Infrequently, the term transgender is defined very broadly to include cross-dressers, regardless of their gender identity.
