The video category, "Transsexuals" should be changed to "Transgender" and Crossdressers should be moved to that category.
Transgender is a more general term than Transsexual and is along the lines of "Straight" and "Gay." Once that is changed, the sub category, "Crossdresser" should be moved from the Gay category to the Transgender category. Gays are mainly interested in men that look like men. Crossdressers attempt to emulate women and fit better in the Transgender category than the Gay category. Plus, most men attracted to crossdressers identifythemselves as straight and would not initially look for crossdressers in the Gay category but rather the Transgender category.
And i strongly disagree. Make an extra category! CDs are not trans! i'm a trans hunter as ts_julie says! if i open the tranny videos and pop out dudes with female clothes i'm gonna get upset! I found and think the two categories much different! More closer to gay stuff than the transexuals! Definately no!
Julie, this is about making crossdresser vids easier to find. It is not about dating. Nobody wants to steal your men. If they like the vid, they don't care if the person in the vid is full time or part time. And if they are getting turned on, they pretty much don't care if someone in the vid is a crossdresser or a transsexual. It's just a vid, not real life.
Xhamster almost has it right and just renaming the "Transsexual" category to "Transgender" and then moving crossderssers there does it. Trangender is the proper umbrella term inclusive of both transsexuals and crossdressers. With studies showing only that 10% of crossdressers identify themselves as gay and only 10% of people who watch crossdressers vids consider themselves to be gay, it is totally illogical for crossdressers vids to be in the gay > men category
While I like the idea of crossdressers to be in their own category, there are not enough crossdresser vids posted to justify it. So they need to be in a subcategory of a major category.
I strongly disagree.
Many crossdressers try to pass as transexual only to attract more men and that's not fair for the real full-time trans girls.
The tranny chasers also get disappointed when they are looking for real tgirls and find a lot of crossdressers.
I think crossdressers should have their own separate category
Hi Ally, I feel Crossdresser should be its own category and not share one with gay, bi, trans etc categories.

Cross dressers should fall into the transgender categories.
Adasia, it appears that you are confusing the term "transgender" with "transsexual." They are not synonyms. As Caprica pointed out, earlier "Transgender"" is an umbrella term recognized by gender experts for transsexuals, cross-dressers (transvestites), . . ., and people who identify as neither female nor male and/or as neither a man or as a woman.
It would be more logical for people looking for crossdresser vids if these vids were in a transgender category than a gay category. This suggestion is simply to make a category of porn easier to find and avoid confusion. It is not to point out the differences among the various classifications of transgenders. I am sorry if identifying similarities between crossdressers and transsexuals offends you. The fact is that we are more similar to each other than we are to either straight or gay people and mental health professionals, gender experts, gender support groups and others agree.
No! There is a huge difference between a transgender and a cross dresser! hormones, living full time as female. real hair, legal name changes, we cannot live like a man anymore.
its a slap in the face to those of us that gave up our life as a male to be a female. while you play part time girl.
Ally agree crossdressers should not be grouped in with gay or bi categories
I do agree
I think Ally is right
Adrienne Fisher commented
Ally, you are so right!!
I agree Ally, I am attracted to and luv to look at crossdressers and it's very hard to find on here. I notice many other sites do have separate category for crossdressers which makes it easy to admire them.
Generally I feel the same way you do Geri regarding labels. Yet as far as a porn site goes, labels are necessary so that people can easily find the porn they like and avoid the porn they find distasteful. This is why this category change would be good. Imagine a gay guy trying to find hot looking guys and seeing someone that looks like a girl instead (except for the cock). Then imagine someone trying to find a chick with a dick and missing a whole sub category because crossdressers are hidden in the gay category and not in a transgender category.
BTW according to the latest revision of the DSM-5 it is no longer considered a disorder for those who identify with a gender different than the one they were assigned at birth. Only if they are distressed by their identification is it diagnosed as a dysphoria and not a disorder. Here is a good article about it http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/04/gender-dysphoria-dsm-5_n_3385287.html
Hi Ally, thnx for posting this category asking for replys. My opinion is,Why do ones need labels, we are humans, right, but as society is, that tends to be what happens. So my opinion and mine only is, yes, it is very complex. As for the nutcase below that said there is a big difference between crossdressers and transgender, you need to know, transgender does NOT have anything to do with a persons appearance, transgender has to do with a feeling inside and individual known as sexual dysphoria. Can crossdressers be transgender, of course they can, as with any other person with 2 legs that have a sexual identity disorder, but then again, you have crossdressers that only dress for the fetish which actually does not include them as transgender. But i agree with crossdresser being removed from gay category, a crossdresser label doesnt mean your gay, or even bi.
This tends to be a very complex and as such misunderstood topic. As Caprica pointed out, earlier "Transgender"" is an umbrella term recognized by gender experts for transsexuals, cross-dressers (transvestites), . . ., and people who identify as neither female nor male and/or as neither a man or as a woman.
While many have their own thoughts as to who or who isn't included in their little group, if you do the research, this is how the professionals define it. Xhamster should stick to it and not invent their own definition.
I agree about 80%
I know quite a few CDs that are completely straight. I also have a Pre-Op Transgendered friend that hates to be lumped in with TVs and CDs, as it is completely different. There should be a group for actual transgendered people and another category for TV/CD. Dressing and Being are two different things :)
I absolutely agree

Of course I do agree!

Placing crossdressers in aTransgender category would make it easier to find crossdressers. This would result in more clicks and more ad revenue for Xhamster. The advertisers would be happy because they would get more ad exposures. Everybody wins. This is a no-brainer.
