What sparked this conversation was the appearance of Caitlyn Jenner on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Season 13 Episode 01.

UrbanGuyTO brings up the question touching on the difference between; drag queens, transvestites, transsexuals, transgender.  turnipHed tries to explain it the best as he can.

  • Drag Queen – dresses for art, theatre, performing, expression. Not a sexual or gender identity discussion.
  • Transvestites – enjoys wearing clothes of the opposite sex and sometimes makeup. May or may not be a sexual discussion, but is not gender identity discussion.
  • Transsexuals – enjoys wearing clothing, usually fetish clothing, of the opposite sex and gets sexual gratification from doing so. Also may enjoy role play as the opposite sex during sex activities. This is not a gender identity discussion or a sexual identity discussion. Transsexuals may be hetero, homo or bisexual. This is a branch of their sexual activities.
  • Transgendered – the gender that a person self identifies as does not match their physical body, physiology, biology but does match their psychology. This is a gender identity discussion but transgendered is not a sexual identity discussion. Transgendered people will have a sexual identity discussion separate from their sexual identity.
