    This stuff confuses me, but I'm trying.

    An adjective requires a noun.

    Transsexual is a more accurate term for people who have transitioned, to whatever degree, from one gender to another. Transgender is an umbrella term that includes much more than MtF or FtM transsexuals.

    Transgender, then, unlike transsexual is a multifaceted term. One example of a transgendered person might be a man who is attracted to women but also identifies as a cross-dresser. Other examples include people who consider themselves gender nonconforming, multigendered, androgynous, third gender, and two-spirit people. All of these definitions are inexact and vary from person to person, yet each of them includes a sense of blending or alternating the binary concepts of masculinity and femininity. Some people using these terms simply see the traditional concepts as restrictive. Less than one percent of all adults identify as transgender.

    Your unasked-for opinion on how I or anyone else should identify themselves is irrelevant. Transgender is still an adjective.

    I didn't say how you or anyone else should identify. I made a statement of fact, however. Transsexual is a more accurate term for individuals who transition from one gender to another. It's very binary. Transgender, on the other hand, is an umbrella term that includes much more. The non-binary, gender-fluid, cross-dressers, etc.

    Fine. Your opinion is noted. Are you agreeing or disagreeing that transgender is an adjective? I'm finding it difficult to tell.

    It's not a personal opinion that I formed. It's a statement of fact taken from Trans glossaries! I didn't disagree that Transgender is an adjective. Facts are not subject to agreement or disagreement.
