Chus Martinez On Transsexuality!

Image

Transsexual people identify as a member of the sex opposite to that assigned at birth, and desire to live and be accepted as such.

Image

Transsexual people may undergo gender transition, the process of aligning one’s gender expression or presentation with their internal gender identity. People who have transitioned may or may not necessarily identify as transgender or transsexual any longer, but simply as a man or a woman.

Image

Those who continue identifying as transsexual men or women may not want to ignore their pre-transition life, and may continue strong ties with other trans people and raising social consciousness.

Image

The process of transition may involve some kind of medical gender reassignment therapy and often (but not always) includes hormone replacement therapy and/or sex reassignment surgery.

Image

References to “pre-operative”, “post-operative” and “non-operative” transsexual people indicate whether they have had, or are planning to have sex reassignment surgery, although some trans people reject these terms as objectifying trans people based on their surgical status and not their mental gender identity.
