Transcript of Trans101

created by Phoenix V. Trans 101 Transgender means that the gender you identify as is different than the sex you were assigned at birth. This means that, although someone may have been coercively assigned female at birth, they may identify as male. What does "transgender" mean? Technically, yes. But there are many other gender identities that would still fall under the transgender umbrella. So, you can be a trans girl or a trans guy? agender bigender pangender androgyne genderqueer transmasculine transfeminine ftm mtf Before we start... Here's some important terminology. sex: your biological, hormonal, or given sex, usually defined by genital configuration. gender identity: how you identify your own gender: NOT ALWAYS determined by your sex This is time for the analogy of what gender is! Back on track...the process many trans people go through in changing their "gender" is called transitioning.

So (she) was considering, in (her) own mind (as well as (she) could, for the hot day made (her) feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by (her).

ANY QUESTIONS? Lucas Silviera So then... Side Note! Every trans* person's
transition is different.
No one experiences it
