Oliven of Columbia University coined the term transgender in his reference work Sexual Hygiene and Pathology, writing that the term which had previously been used, transsexualism"is misleading; actually, 'transgenderism' is meant, because sexuality is not a major factor in primary transvestism.
A Movement Whose Time has Come", circulated inidentified transgender as a term to unify all forms of gender nonconformity; in this way transgender has become synonymous with queer.
These terms have now been superseded by " trans man " and " trans woman ", respectively, and the terms "trans-masculine" or "trans-feminine" are increasingly in use. However, the concerns of the two groups are sometimes different; for example, transsexual men and women who can pay for medical treatments or who have institutional coverage for their treatment are likely to be concerned with medical privacy and establishing a durable legal status as their gender later in life.
Distinctions between the terms transgender and transsexual are commonly based on distinctions between gender psychological, social and sex physical.
In his book Transgender, an Ethnography of a Category, anthropologist David Valentine asserts that transgender was coined and used by activists to include many people who do not necessarily identify with the term and states that people who do not identify with the term transgender should not be included in the transgender spectrum.
It notes that there are no universally-accepted definitions, and terminology confusion is common because terms that were popular in at the turn of the 21st century may now be deemed offensive. The THP recommends that clinicians ask clients what terminology they prefer, and avoid the term transsexual unless they are sure that a client is comfortable with it.
There are also people who have had SRS but do not meet the definition of "transsexual", such as Gregory Hemingway. These include people whose gender identities are not exclusively masculine or feminine but may, for example, be androgynousbigenderpangenderor agender —often grouped under the alternative umbrella term genderqueer  —and third-gender people alternatively, some references and some societies conceptualize transgender people as a third gender.
Genderqueer, including androgynous and bigender Main articles: GenderqueerBigenderand Androgyny Genderqueer or non-binary identities, which are not exclusively masculine or feminine but instead may be agenderandrogynous, bigender, pangenderor genderfluid exist outside of cisnormativity.
Limited forms of androgyny are common women wearing pants, men wearing earrings and are not seen as transgender behavior. Androgyne is also sometimes used as a medical synonym for an intersex person. Transvestite or cross-dresser Main article: Transvestism A transvestite is a person who cross-dressesor dresses in clothes typically associated with the gender opposite the one they were assigned at birth.
Gilbertprofessor at the Department of Philosophy, York UniversityToronto, offers this definition: These individuals are cross dressing but are not cross dressers. The majority of cross-dressers identify as heterosexual. The term transvestite and the associated outdated term transvestism are conceptually different from the term transvestic fetishism, as transvestic fetishist describes those who intermittently use clothing of the opposite gender for fetishistic purposes.
Drag kings and queens See also: Drag kingDrag queenand Faux queen Drag is a term applied to clothing and makeup worn on special occasions for performing or entertaining, unlike those who are transgender or who cross-dress for other reasons.
Drag performance includes overall presentation and behavior in addition to clothing and makeup. Drag can be theatrical, comedic, or grotesque. Drag queens have been considered caricatures of women by second-wave feminism. Drag artists have a long tradition in LGBT culture. Generally the term drag queen covers men doing female drag, drag king covers women doing male drag, and faux queen covers women doing female drag.
Nevertheless, there are drag artists of all genders and sexualities who perform for various reasons. Some drag performers, transvestites, and people in the gay community have embraced the pornographically-derived term tranny to describe drag queens or people who engage in transvestism or cross-dressing; however, this term is widely considered offensive if applied to transgender people.
Intersex Intersex people have genitalia or other physical sex characteristics that do not conform to strict definitions of male or female, but intersex people are not necessarily transgender because they do not necessarily disagree with their assigned sex. Transgender and intersex issues often overlap, however, because they may both challenge rigid definitions of sex and gender.
LGBT community See also: Despite the distinction between sexual orientation and gender, throughout history the gay, lesbian, and bisexual subculture was often the only place where gender-variant people were socially accepted in the gender role they felt they belonged to; especially during the time when legal or medical transitioning was almost impossible.
This acceptance has had a complex history. Like the wider world, the gay community in Western societies did not generally distinguish between sex and gender identity until the s, and often perceived gender-variant people more as homosexuals who behaved in a gender-variant way than as gender-variant people in their own right.
Today, members of the transgender community often continue to struggle to remain part of the same movement as lesbian, gay, and bisexual people and to be included in rights protections.
In addition, the role of the transgender community in the history of LGBT rights is often overlooked, as shown in Transforming History. Transitioning transgender Mental healthcare Most mental health professionals recommend therapy for internal conflicts about gender identity or discomfort in an assigned gender role, especially if one desires to transition.
People who experience discord between their gender and the expectations of others or whose gender identity conflicts with their body may benefit by talking through their feelings in depth; however, research on gender identity with regard to psychology, and scientific understanding of the phenomenon and its related issues, is relatively new.
France removed gender identity disorder as a diagnosis by decree in  but according to French trans rights organizations, beyond the impact of the announcement itself, nothing changed.
The DSM-5 refers to the topic as gender dysphoria while reinforcing the idea that being transgender is not considered a mental illness.Child Care and Parent Services. Basic Policy & MAXSTAR Training.

Transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex. Transgender people are sometimes called transsexual if they desire medical assistance to transition from one sex to another.
