    The trouble with the word "transsexual" is disappointingly banal - it has the word "sex" in it. This makes people believe it has something to do with sex as in intercourse rather than sex as in gender. As such, the term was speedily rejected as soon as someone came up with an improvement. Transgender is more specific and easier to understand and, therefore, doesn't confuse thickos.

    The UK uses the WHO standards which continue to use the medical term "Transsexualism" which is quite the most ghastly combination of syllables.

    Yeah I admit I haven't got a fucking clue what's going on with gender at the moment.

    I'm going to associate myself as gender negative.

    It shouldn't be 'transwoman', it should be... 'trans...person'.

    Especially when people shout out at you while you're walking through the marketplace.

    Do remember the space in "trans woman", there's folk who'd burn yr house down for that.

    Anyway, I find the average streetshouter goes with plain old "tranny".

    Your DMs
    Back when I were a lad you could call a tranny a tranny and she'd doff her fascinator and say thankin thee. And you could leave your door open all day and fags were 20p from paki shop and the pakis didn't mind being called pakis. Worlds gone mad.

    There's a common misunderstanding(?) here that transsexual only refers to people who have undergone a extensive psychiatric assessment and cleared for SRS, while transgender is often used in the media on cross dressers. Even occasional drag acts count

    That was originally the case, at least in the limited circles in which I spun. Because the medical terminology is outdated, that association continues for some people but most folk have moved on.

    I was trying to test my mother's knowledge on issues of trans and gender and then stumbled over my own definitions.

    That is what we were told transgendered meant in the LGBT soc at uni too. Though that was 20 years ago now.

    It seem a while back that pre-op and post-op transsexual (remember it's a double S!) were the two PC descriptions, as if the simple matter of deeply invasive urological surgery determined everything.

    That has reminded me that people who put sibilance on the x in the word homosexual want shooting.

    Oh I LOVE it. I mean I'd never actually use it, but when certain STATELY HOMOS do, it always gives me a frisson.

    I suspect by that stage Saudia Arabia will be OKAY with hand-holding in public. They're barely ready for a PEOPLE Pride, let alone one from any kind of minority group.

    I very much doubt Saudi Arabia will exist by then. When's the oil due to run out?

    Babe, you're an ARAB. Surely you already know that the entire Middle East is okay with two men holding hands?!

    Question is when it will be okay for men and women to hold hands, let alone for the queer and polyamorous.

    What MEN? I was talking about ANYONE. They're so backwards. And I only really mentioned Saudia Arabia because RS was referencing it.
