To whom we Call Transgender
The physiological makeup of human being by nature is most often a combination of genetic, hormonal, chromosomal, gonadal and anatomical, which determinates that strong impact between the physiology of a body and the sexual differentiation of the brain. Sex is often assigned at birth based on the physical appearance of baby genitalia.
Traditional gender model says that each entity depends upon each other it means binary relation exist between each entity, but in Progressive gender model these entities don’t depend on each other means no binary relation exist.
Assumptions about, to be Transgender isn’t all about surgery or sexual orientation or even how someone dresses. It’s all about how they feel from inside.
The word ‘’TRANSGENDER’’ canvas a wide range of people, it’s an umbrella term. It’s used to describe people with a gender identity and /or gender expression different to their sex assigned at birth.
