A Guide on Transgender Counseling
Understanding Transgender Identity
Transgender persons have a gender identification or expression that is different from the sex given to them at birth. Transsexuals are transgender persons who seek medical treatment to transition from one sex to another. Reassignment treatment (which may include hormone replacement therapy and sex reassignment surgery) is frequently used for transgender and transsexual persons, with their gender identity being the polar opposite of their birth-assigned sex and gender.
Types of Transgender
- Agender: You are asexual if you have little or no sexual attraction to other individuals. You are an agender if you don’t have a gender. Many people are perplexed by the “a-” at the start, although the words signify two different things. Some transgender persons are asexual, although this does not apply to all transgender people.
- Androgenous: Many androgynous people identify as both masculine and feminine in their minds and emotions. They may also identify as “gender-queer,” “non-binary,” or “gender-neutral.” A person who is androgynous is free to engage in both masculine and feminine behaviors and duties.
- Bigender: Bigender is a term used to describe someone who has two gender identities or a mix of gender identities, such as identifying as both male and female or agender and female. It’s not to be confused with bisexuality, which occurs when a person has romantic, emotional, or sexual feelings for two different genders.
- Pangender: Pangender is a phrase used to describe persons who do not identify as female or male. The word “all genders” is used by the LGBT community to describe a concept that is inclusive.
- Genderfluid: Genderfluid is a term used to describe a gender that changes throughout time. Because a genderfluid person’s identity might shift at any time, it’s better to inquire what they are right now. For example, suppose you wake up as a female and then feel like a boy. Depending on the person, this might alter significantly and quickly.
Symptoms Of Being A Transgender
- Make sure that your gender identity is incompatible with your biological sex
- Only when you’re in the gender role of your preferred gender identity do you feel at ease (may include non-binary)
- a strong desire to conceal or eliminate physical indicators of biological sex, such as breasts or facial hair
- A deep hatred for your biological sex’s genitals
Causes Of Being A Transgender
- Genetics: Male-to-female transsexuals were more apparent than cisgender men to have a longer variant of a receptor gene for the sex hormone androgen (longer repeats of the gene), which decreased its efficacy at restrictive testosterone. The androgen receptor (NR3C4) is activated by the binding of testosterone or dihydrotestosterone and plays an influential role in the development of main and secondary male sex characteristics.
- Psychological: Gender dysphoria in people born male tends to follow one of two major trajectories: early or late-onset. Gender dysphoria manifests itself behaviorally in childhood. Gender dysphoria may halt for a while in this group, and they may identify as gay or homosexual for a period of time before resuming gender dysphoria.
- Parenting: The failure of an attempt to raise David Reimer as a female from infancy to puberty after his genitals were unintentionally mutilated is mentioned as disproving the idea that parenting determines gender identity entirely. Many additional newborn and infant boys were medically reassigned as girls between the 1960s and 2000 if they were born with deformed penises or lost their penises in accidents.
Transgender people, according to research, have a higher risk of mental health issues than the general population. As a result of their lifetimes of discrimination, transgender people frequently struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, and self-acceptance. Transgender youth are three to four times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. Living with these diverse emotional issues might cause anxiety about rejection and abandonment.
It may be difficult to come out and speak up about your struggles, but having support in life is critical to one’s mental health and overall well-being. People can connect, communicate, and heal in meaningful ways through leisure activities, thanks to ongoing movements within the transgender communities. If you are suffering from severe anxiety or depression, you should get help from a mental health professional.

Transgender individuals are those whose gender identity differs from the sex given to them at birth. Gender identity refers to an individual’s internal, personal feeling of being a man or a woman (or boy or girl.) Some people’s gender identities do not easily fall into either of those two categories. The sex assigned at birth and the internal gender identity of transgender persons does not correspond.
The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community is referred to by the abbreviation LGBTQ. The letter Q can also stand for “questioning.”
Sexual orientation refers to a person’s enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person (for example, straight, gay, lesbian, or bisexual), whereas gender identity refers to a person’s internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman, or someone who does not fit into the gender binary.
Simply defined, sexual orientation refers to who you are attracted to and who you fall in love with, whereas gender identity refers to who you are.
Everyone has a gender identity, an internal sense of self, and a gender perception. Some people’s gender identification is the same as the sex they were assigned at birth (cisgender), while others’ gender identity is different than the sex they were allocated at birth (transgender) (transgender).
Transgender persons have long felt that their gender identity did not fit neatly into the two binary categories of “man” or “woman.” Previously, trans individuals who felt this way used the terms genderqueer and genderfluid to express their feelings.
Transgender individuals suffer appalling poverty, prejudice, and violence. 27 transgender persons were killed in 2016. Eight transgender women of color have been killed since January 1, 2017.
- According to the National Center for Transgender Equality’s “2015 U.S. Trans Survey,”
- Transgender individuals make up 29% of the poor, compared to 14% of the overall population.
- 30 percent of transgender individuals have been homeless at some time in their lives, with 12 percent having been homeless within the last year.
- Transgender individuals are unemployed at three times the rate of the general population, with rates for people of color reaching four times the national average.
- In the previous 12 months, 30% of transgender persons reported being fired, refused a promotion, or mistreated at work because of their gender identification.
- In the previous year, 31% of transgender persons encountered abuse in a public location, including 14% who were denied equal service, 24% who were verbally insulted, and 2% who were physically attacked because they were transgender.
- 40 percent of respondents said they had tried suicide at some point in their lives, which is roughly nine times the average in the United States.
For other transgender persons, being linked with their birth name causes a great deal of distress, or it is just an aspect of their life that they want to put behind. Respect the present name that a transgender person is using. If you chance to know a transgender person’s birth name (the name they were given when they were born but no longer use), don’t disclose it without that person’s specific consent. Sharing a transgender person’s birth name and/or photographs of a transgender person prior to their transition is a violation of privacy unless they have given you permission.
The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is a proposed bill in Congress that would expressly prohibit gender identity discrimination in both private (non-government) and public employment. Lambda Legal and other LGBT advocacy organizations have withdrawn their support for the present version of ENDA because it allows religiously connected companies to discriminate excessively. We are working with congressional leadership and our partners to develop stronger language that will provide LGBT employees with the rights they require.
When someone is treated differently because they do not adhere to sex stereotypes or change their sex—or, in certain circumstances, because gender identity is part of one’s sex—this is now commonly considered sex discrimination. In a decision that did not involve a transgender employee, the Supreme Court recognized the concept that treating someone differently based on stereotypes may be sex discrimination in 1989. In Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins, the Court decided that Title VII did indeed protect a female accountant who was denied partnership at her company purely because her manner did not meet her employer’s conception of what a woman should appear and act like. In a work review, a supervisor stated that Hopkins may benefit from a “course in charm school.”
