This is a broad term that includes transexual (pre/non or post-op), non-gender, bi (tri & multi) gender, androgynes, etc.
The state of being transgendered may or may not have any bearing on sexual preferences.
Bob was born a male, but as a person is a woman.
Karen was born a female, but as a person has no gender.
John was born a male, but as a person switches gender.
and so on..
Transgendered individuals are not necessarily homosexual & we are definitely NOT child molesters.
If those ignorant morons, who spread these disgusting rumors about us got to know us, they would think quite differently.
There is a major difference between sex & gender:
1. Sex is between the legs.
2. Gender is between the ears.
Be proud of who you are.
2. A European woman who wore pants in 1910 was a transgender because she violated current cultural gender stereotypes of the day.
