Post Swedish Preschool Aims To Eliminate Gender Issues 
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/26/gender-bias-egalia-preschool_n_884866.html

Swedish tax funded preschool wants to eliminate all gender distinctions between male and female, not even referring to their students by "boy" or "girl", and aggressively mainstreaming gay, lesbian, transgender, and transexual themes into the childrens' reading materials.

No doubt this will be coming to California soon.

I'm an old fashioned "let the chromosomes fall where they may" kind of guy when it comes to deciding who's a boy or a girl, and this only if the standard plumbing doesn't seem to be present.

Can someone explain the difference between the following terms?


transgender
transexual

Is the first one a state of mind, and the second you've gotten a doctor to help the game go to the next level?

Must admit I made an incorrect distinction in my original post. I was also confused on the terminology. I was looking for a term to describe cross dressers who have no interest in a physical transition to the other sex, just like wearing the clothes, as opposed to one who actively wishes to have an extreme plumbing makeover. I now gather that transsexual/transgender are the same thing, being a person who is displeased with their assigned gender.

There's enough info in here to make your head spin.
