In order to dispel some of these misconceptions, we need to first of all define what it means to be a transsexual, and then later confront each of the misconceptions surrounding the identities of these people. Ask most individuals what it means to be a "transsexual," and the answer is fairly cut-and-dry: you will be met with the response, "A transsexual is someone who has chosen to reassign his or her gender through surgery, hormones, clothing, grooming and lifestyle." While this definition works very well for most practical purposes, it must be noted that further investigation into what it means to be a transsexual must be undertaken.
