Transgender Taxonomies: Alphabet Soup, Political Correctness, and the Conservative Transgender

One of those things that bothers me about the transgender community is the difficulty of figuring out what transgender-related words mean today, in the sense that they are constantly being redefined, re-invented, applied out of context, or having new contexts to which they are allowed to be applied.

Shamanism, or how transgenderism has an evolutionary origin
