Transsexual people experience a gender identity that is inconsistent with, or not culturally associated with, their assigned sex and desire to permanently transition to the gender with which they identify, usually seeking medical assistance including hormone replacement therapy and other sex reassignment therapies to help them align their body with their identified sex or gender. Transsexual is a subset of transgender   but some transsexual people reject the label of transgender. Norman Haire reported that in Dora R of Germany began a surgical transition, under the care of Magnus Hirschfeldwhich ended in with a successful genital reassignment surgery.

In recent decades, there has been an assault on the sexes. That is, there has been an attack on the previously undisputed reality that human beings are created either male or female; that there are significant differences between the sexes; and that those differences result in at least some differences in the roles played by men and women in society. The first wave of this attack came from the modern feminist movement and the second from the homosexual movement. The third wave of this assault on the sexes has been an attack on a basic reality--that all people have a biological sex, identifiable at birth and immutable through life, which makes them either male or female.
In the last decade, in many parts of the English-speaking world, transgender advocacy has made substantial, and at times, expansive gains, with trans rights becoming embedded in institutions and enforced by the state. Like any significant historical event, this gender revolution has multiple causes. One is digital technology, providing virtual worlds which transcend physical reality and online networks for spreading activism.

After I delivered my paper, I became a focal point for criticism—though not because of my the content of my presentation. It is undeniably true that drag queens of all races have a special affection for the work of divas of colour—and pay homage to these idols by lip-synching. This is an industry that owes much to musicians of colour, who often have had their work used or co-opted without adequate compensation. But while this was a fair point for debate, the discussion quickly spiraled off into an entirely different direction.
