Definition: A transsexual is a person who identifies as a member of the opposite gender. People who are transsexual often want to surgically or hormonally alter their bodies to match their identity. Pre-op transsexuals generally have not had surgery and so have the genitalia of their birth sex. They will usually still live as the opposite sex. Post-op transsexuals have undergone surgery to change their their genitals.
