TRANSEXUAL ESCORT TERMINOLOGY EXPLAINED
Ever been browsing ads for transexual escorts and wondered what some of those abbreviations, acronyms, shortenings, jargon, terminology and slang mean? I will endeavour to demystify some of them here:
Obviously some of the terms are used generically for escorts but there are some that are specific to shemale escorts as opposed to regular biological female escorts such as:
Transsexual: refers to a person who experiences a mismatch of the sex they were born as and the sex they identify as. A transsexual sometimes undergoes medical treatment to change his/her physical sex to match his/her sex identity through hormone treatments and/or surgically. Not all transsexuals can have or desire surgery.
Transgender: (sometimes shortened to trans or TG) people are those whose psychological self ("gender identity") differs from the social expectations for the physical sex they were born with. To understand this, one must understand the difference between biological sex, which is one's body (genitals, chromosomes, ect.), and social gender, which refers to levels of masculinity and femininity. Often, society conflates sex and gender, viewing them as the same thing. But, gender and sex are not the same thing.Transgender people are those whose psychological self ("gender identity") differs from the social expectations for the physical sex they were born with. For example, a female with a masculine gender identity or who identifies as a man.
Tranny: Is a shortening of the trannsexual and is considered often considered offensive to some transgendered people as it can be used in a derogatory way.
Shemale: Comes from porn and is cosidered offensive to some transgendered people.
TS: Shortenting of Trannsexual often used by porn stars/ Escorts prior to their name.
Transvestite or Crossdresser: Individuals who regularly or occasionally wear the clothing socially assigned to a gender not their own, but are usually comfortable with their anatomy and do not wish to change it (i.e. they are not transsexuals). Cross-dresser is the preferred term for men who enjoy or prefer women's clothing and social roles. Contrary to popular belief, the overwhelming majority of male cross-dressers identify as straight and often are married. Very few women call themselves cross-dressers
Chicks with Dicks: Like shemale comes from the porn industry and can also be considered offensive to many transgendered people.
T-Girl: Another word for transexual female likely a porn catch term definitely comes from the U.S.
Active: Can get hard and give it "Active Only" means only gives it.
Passive: Can take it. "Passive Only" means only takes it.
Versatile: Can give it and take it
Pre-op: Pre-operative Transexual has NOT undergone full sex change surgery still has a "she-cock"
Post- op: Post Operative Transexual has undergone full Sexual Reassignment Surgery or now has a Vagina and no penis. Generally consider themselves as female not necessarily identifying as transexual.
Top: Same as "Active"
Bottom: Same as "Passive"
Fully Functional: A transexual who can still get an erection
Passable or convincing: Suggesting that a transexual female can go undetected as a regular biological woman. The importance of this is contentious. I think it is more important to look good and be who you are because ultimately transexual women will never be the same as regular biological women because they weren't born with vaginas.
Natural: Can be used in regard to breasts- meaning no implants just breast tissue as a result of hormone therapy or can be used in relation to sex without a condom "Natural Oral" or sometimes a throw away line to suggest passibility as a regular biological female.
