transsexual

A term previously common in medical and psychological communities to describe transgender individuals who have had a sex change. The term has largely fallen out of favour, with transgender being the preferred terminology, but it is still preferred by some individuals who have changed, or seek to change, their bodies through medical interventions – such individuals may also reject the label transgender in favour of transsexual.

Transsexual should not be used as an umbrella term for transgender people or communities.
