Despite the trope name, it is very important to note that the correct term is '''transgender''', not '''transsexual'''. The latter is an outdated word from a time when the [[ScienceMarchesOn concept of gender identity and its relationship, or lack thereof, with a person's physical being was not as well-understood]] as it is stands today.[[note]]as mentioned in the below Terminology folder, biological sex as a physical aspect disconnected from gender identity that remains rigidly one thing is now an outdated concept as well.[[/note]] As a matter of fact, there is still a lot that isn't understood, and because research on the subject is always yielding new discoveries in relatively quick succession, in addition to shifting societal norms and growing understanding that even biology isn't as cut-and-dry as it once was thought to be, it is generally best to keep an open mind on the topic as said research has a tendency to challenge commonplace beliefs, assumptions, and understanding. [[note]]It wasn't very long ago that the correct term was "transsexual", and not too long before even that the term "transvestite" was considered okay to use too. This should be kept in mind with context to older media, which are likely to have used this terminology when those words were still the best they could understand to use.[[/note]]

Note that, despite the trope name, the correct term is '''transgender''', not '''transsexual'''. The latter is an outdated word from a time when sex and gender were considered synonymous, until it was realized that your biological sex isn't the end-all decisive factor on whether a person is male or female (it's mostly related to brain structure; since nature isn't perfect, a small sub-percentage of the population will develop a brain structure opposite to their biological sex, causing the disconnect, which is often described as having to wear a terrible itchy sweater and being unable to take it off). Note that changing/living out one's gender with support of medication and operations does not change one's biological sex, which is important to know for doctors doing any given threatment.

* [[QueerAsTropes Homosexuality]] is a completely separate issue. Transgenderism isn't [[TransEqualsGay gayness turned]] UpToEleven. A strictly gay man would not be attracted to a trans woman, for example, and a trans man isn't necessarily attracted to women as some kind of "super" lesbian; he could very well be gay (attracted to other men). The "T" is in "LGBT" because transphobia and homophobia have similar motives - both defy the main idea of what a man or woman "is" or "should be" - but they are distinct groups.
