It begins with a brief introductory essay, followed by the glossary itself which you can skip ahead to by clicking that link. The following trans- gender- sexuality- and activism-related terms regularly appear in my writings. In addition to the definition, I will often add clarifying information and links to further discussion sometimes citing passages from my books Whipping GirlExcludedand Outspoken.
Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Archives of Sexual Behavior. The present review focuses on the brain structure of male-to-female MtF and female-to-male FtM homosexual transsexuals before and after cross-sex hormone treatment as shown by in vivo neuroimaging techniques.

There were plenty of feminists on TV in the early 90s, and I always sided with these tough ladies, the ones that didn't see men as their superiors. Raised by my mum, my gran and my aunty and bullied by a father I despised, child-me was certain that women couldn't be the inferior gender. Teenage me wondered why there even have to be an inferior gender — or, in fact, gender at all. Couldn't we all just do our own thing and be nice to each other?
I am an American born Canadian by choice female-to-male transsexual man. And like the authors of the above-referenced BMJ article, I would promote the use of caution in transitioning children. I started my transition in by changing my name and pronouns.
Since terminology is so fluid and identity labels mean different things to different people, this list simply aims to serve as a resource and guide. A medical label used to categorize people according to their chromosomes, hormones, genitalia and secondary sex characteristics breasts, body hair, etc. Term used to describe an individual whose assigned biological sex aligns with their expected binary gender identity.
Though connected and overlapping, the following living language of sexual and gender identity are often distinct and unique. Try not to think of them as definitions, but as a begin point for further research and listening.

The study of the causes of transsexuality investigates gender identity formation of transgender people, especially those who are transsexual. Transsexual people have a gender identity that does not match their assigned sexoften resulting in gender dysphoria. The most studied factors are biological. Certain brain structures in trans women have been found to be similar to cisgender women's as opposed to cis men's, and trans men's have been found to be similar to cis men's, even controlling for hormone usewhich can also cause trans people's brains to become closer to those of cis people of the same gender.

Gender identity disorder GID refers to transsexual individuals who feel that their assigned biological gender is incongruent with their gender identity and this cannot be explained by any physical intersex condition. There is growing scientific interest in the last decades in studying the neuroanatomy and brain functions of transsexual individuals to better understand both the neuroanatomical features of transsexualism and the background of gender identity. So far, results are inconclusive but in general, transsexualism has been associated with a distinct neuroanatomical pattern.
