What's the difference between a crossdresser, a transvestite and a transsexual?

A crossdresser is someone who (for whatever reason) wears clothes conventionally associated with the opposite gender.

A transvestite is a crossdresser who learned Latin in school.

A transsexual knows that his or her physical body is at odds with his or her inner gender identity.

A man does not look behind the door unless he has stood there himself.
