unique to individual users.

Being Read: Being recognized as a man wearing women's clothing.

Post-Op: State of being for a Transsexual AFTER Sex Reassignment Surgery.
Pre-Op: State of being for a Transsexual BEFORE Sex Reassignment Surgery.
Purge: The act of a TG getting rid of all their *girl* things. Most TGs will purge at some point in their lives in an attempt to avoid the desire to dress. This is usually not successful and ends up being quite expensive as those items will have to be replaced when the individual starts dressing again. If a TG gets *the urge to purge*, the best idea is to box the items up and give them to a TG friend to keep. They will understand.
ROFLMAO: Chat room abbreviation for Rolling on the Floor Laughing My Ass Off.
*S*: Chat room abbreviation for Smile
Shemale: A stage 1 Transsexual usually in the employ of the Adult Entertainment Industry. (Only call a TG a *Shemale* if she refers to herself as such FIRST.)

Troll: A voyeuristic person who lurks in a chat room who may send unwanted or unsolicited private messages of a sexual or violent nature.
Tucking: Hiding male genitalia. This is done several ways depending on how God has blessed or cursed you. The basic idea is to gently push the testicles up inside the body and then to pull the penis back between the legs giving a more *feminine* profile. Everything is then taped in place (not MY method of choice, mind you) with surgical tape (not DUCT TAPE. DUCT TAPE will remove skin...OUCH!!!) or held in place with a tight fitting undergarment (a gaff, Cache' Sexe, Dance Belt or several pairs of panties or pantyhose).
TV or TS Lesbian: I still have to think about this one every time I see it...*G*. This is a Transgendered individual who is only sexually interested in GGs. However, this will sometimes also include other TGs. If in doubt...ASK!
WB: Chat room abbreviation for Welcome Back.
WEG: Chat room abbreviation for Wicked Evil Grin.
WG: Chat room abbreviation for Wicked Grin.
