/Transgender

The term ‘transgender’ is used in different ways. Some use it to describe people whose gender identity does not match the gender they were assigned at birth, but who do not undergo complete physical gender confirmation procedures. Others use ‘transgender’ as an umbrella term, i.e. similarly to or exactly like the word ‘trans’ (see above). And, since ‘transgender’ also includes all those who do not want to go through medical gender confirmation procedures, it is also often understood in opposition to ‘transsexuality’.
