Transgender is someone who like all the other gay subgroups has psychological variance in terms of how masculine or feminine they are socially in relation to their sex. They have developed a form of depression known as "gender dysphoria" and attempt to alter their body to change into the opposite sex.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, lists gender dysphoria as a mental illness. The condition is also sometimes known as: gender identity disorder, gender incongruence or transgenderism. Contrary to the transgendered people raging on here it's not something that's "normal" and these people need therapy rather than surgery.
