This is not so much as a question but to clear up an answer that you answered about what is transgender mean. You were partially right in your response.
In the 1930s the word transgender was first coined by a gay sexoligist to discribe gay,lesbian and transexual people. In other words all theose people that did not conform to what society considers the gender "norm"
I find it somewhat disturbing when I see or hear others use the meaning that you used. Yes transexuals do fit under the transgender umbrella however so do lesbians, crossdressers, dragqueens/kings, gay men, intersexed etc.
I just wish people would use the correct meaning so that later I don`t have to do history lessens to mixed up people later on. I do find much of what you write helpful to many people, but at the same time I don`t always find the information completely correct.
For many years transexual people have had to fight against many sterio types and many misinformed people. I would also appreciate it if in the next issue you could better explain the term transgender. - Leslie
