Who, Then, Really Is Trans? | Opinion by Dana Beyer

Dana Beyer, a transgender columnist for the Huffington Post, discussed the question of “how do you define a transgender person?” The Transgender and Policy Institute claims 2-5% of us are gender dysphoric. The Williams Law Institute gives a number of 0.3% as being transgender. Traditional medical journals give numbers ranging from 1 in 3,000 to 1 in 30,000, depending on the gender and criteria. There is also the question of whether drag queens and kings, crossdressers, genderqueer persons, etc. qualify. Personally I don’t think there is a good answer, which is one reason we have so many categories to place people into.
