Transgender is an inclusive term used to describe the diversity of gender identity and expression.
The term can be used to describe people who do not conform to common ideas of gender roles. This includes: transvestites, transsexual people, who have permanently switched gender because their gender identity is the opposite to the gender assigned them at birth and intersexed people (people who are born with chromosomal anomalies or ambiguous genitalia. Intersex infants are often assigned a gender and subjected to surgical procedures. Some intersex people develop gender identity issues)
