Transsexualism is not always a disorder, which I will explain below.
I didn't lump them together, whoever came up with "LGBT" lumped them together. I'm not being deceitful.
You must understand that transsexual/transgender are both umbrella terms.There's no greater opponent to transsexualism then those who undergo surgery to make living with it easier, and most LGBT groups support transsexuals, which runs against the concept that there is a war against it.
Here is the problem, the reason LGBT groups support transsexuals is because they think transsexuals are transgenders. Transsexuals often identify themselves as those who have the disorder from birth. Transgenders identify themselves as a gender after they have surgery. But anyway, both terms are thrown around a lot, which is why LGBT includes the "T."
I rarely use smilies, what are you talking about?Taking a page out Capt'ns play book regarding liberal use of smileys when you're not 100% literal/serious helps sarcasm come across this dry text where we lack body language and voice inflection
