Sunday Times article 18th October

Postby Karen1950 » Mon Oct 19, 2015 11:53 am

According to the Times, a crossdresser is someone who has one outfit whereas a transvestite has many. I have always thought of myself as a crossdresser, but as I have multiple outfits now it seems I am a Transvestite ??
Are we to be in a continuous state of being re-defined by external sources ??

Confused Karen

I didn't realise the Times wrote humorous columns!

Cross dresser: anybody who wears clothing traditionally associated with the opposite gender.

Transvestite: anybody who presents as the opposite gender (usually female), but has a core identity of their birth assigned gender.

Transgender: anybody who was born in one gender, but is actually the opposite gender.

Transsexual: (Medical) a transgender person on the transsexual care pathway.

Trans: An umbrella term for any of the above, as a shortcut for thinking about where they are.

Trams: A method of vehicular transport, and a common misspelling of trans.

Cis is a Greek word. As is Trans. Trans means "across" (so transport is literally 'carry across'), cis is 'same', so cisgender, 'same as birth assigned gender'.

(So to answer your question: the Greeks come up with these three letter things.)

Debbie

P.S. There's loads of other places on the trans spectrum with labels. Bigender, gender queer, gender fluid, transmasculine, transfeminine, to name just a few.
