Classification Of Transsexuals

The classification of transsexual people and people with other gender atypicalities has been done since the mid-1960s. In medicine and psychiatry, terms such as "heterosexual" and "homosexual" have been based on a person's sex assignment at birth, which has prompted the increased use of androphilia and gynephilia to avoid terminological confusion. In social and political contexts classification is often relative to one's desired sex.
