"Transgenderism" is an umbrella term covering persons who do not fit societal expectations of sex or gender. Transgendered persons include: transsexuals, cross-dressers, drag-queens, butch lesbians, intersexuals, and others. Academic perspectives on transgenderism come from many disciplines such as psychology, history, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, queer studies, and law.
Sites appropriate for this category provide substantive reading about an aspect of transgenderism from an academic perspective. Sites do not need to focus on every kind of transgenderism. For example, sites may focus exclusively on transsexuals, cross-dressers, drag-queens, butch lesbians, or intersexuals. Sites do not need to focus on every kind of academic approach. For example, sites may approach transgenderism from a psychological, historical, sociological, anthropological, gender studies, queer studies, or legal perspective.

This site accepts everyone that aspires to be their gender of personal choice. Without exception, everyone will be treated equally regardless of race, religion, nationality or chosen gender. Sites most appropriate but not limited too, are those that raise and promote a responsible socially acceptable level of all gender kind. "Site quality" is more of a requirement than "site layout" but good organization and careful use of banner advertising will be considered in the final placement decision. You are socially responsible for where your "links" take an individual. See guidelines for "pornographic" material or a display of the human anatomy outside "Western Cultural Standards" with no redeeming value as such. A healthy site is a well maintained site.
