Trans vs. Trans*

youknowyouretrans:

Trans can be deemed to be less inclusive than Trans*.

Trans* is generally taken to mean:

Transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, non-binary, genderfluid, genderfuck, intersex, third gender, transvestite, cross-dresser, bi-gender, trans man, trans women, agender.

Rather than “trans” which could be taken to imply it only applies to trans men and trans women.
