What the words trans and transgender really mean

There is a new movement of transsexual separatists over at tumblr who claims total ownership of the term "transgender". They call themselves "truscum" (appropriating a slur directed against them) and require that anyone who calls him- or herself transgender must be diagnosed with gender dysphoria. 

I have the deepest sympathy for the transsexual struggle and is gender dysphoric myself, but this attempt at excluding other types of gender variance from the transgender umbrella is simply unacceptable.

So here is a reminder on the common use of  the word transgender.
