Found inWikipedia, May 30, 2007 ("Transgender ... is a general term applied to a variety of individuals, behaviors, and groups involving tendencies that diverge from the normative gender role (woman or man) commonly, but not always, assigned at birth, as well as the role traditionally held by society. Transgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as male, female, both or neither) not matching one's "assigned gender" (identification by others as male or female based on physical/genetic sex). Transgender does not imply any specific form of sexual orientation -- transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual or asexual.")
American Heritage dict. (transgendered: appearing as, wishing to be considered as, or having undergone surgery to become a member of the opposite sex)
