What is the meaning of post-op transsexual?
A post-op transsexual refers to a person born with transsexualism who had their condition corrected with surgery. So the transsexual woman is just a woman afterwards. Likewise, the TS man is just a man. A pre-op TS is a person who was born with transsexualism (who is not merely transgendered) who will someday get the surgery. There is also a non-op TG who people often mistakenly call a non-op TS. That is a man who lives as a woman, or a woman who lives as a man, and who intends on never getting surgery. They are likely not transsexual at all. That is not the same as a pre-op TS who is living in poverty or who is in bad health. The fact they would get surgery if they could would make such persons pre-ops.
Asked in Health
What is the meaning of Post-Op?
Post- op stands for post operative. This is the time immediately after a surgery. A doctor will give instructions for this time that will help the patient to recover from the stress of surgery. Some patients may be able to rest at home, some in the hospital only. It is up to the doctor. Another use of the word post op is slang. Sometimes people who have had a sex change are called post op to distinguish them from people who live dressed as a different gender, but who have the same sex organs that they were born with: a post- op.

Asked in Transsexualism
Is a transsexual woman a post-op male or a post-op female?
Actually, "transsexual woman" would refer for to a TS woman before her surgery (pre-op) to get the female parts she believes she was always supposed to have. After surgery, a transsexual woman would be just a woman. The gender after the word transsexual always refers to how the person sees themselves and the body they believe they were supposed to have all along. It would be easier if people would think of transsexualism like a birth defect or medical condition. Instead of "men becoming women," it would be seen as women fixing a birth condition. Likewise with the transsexual men being men born with the wrong parts rather than women becoming men. Just like a diabetic woman is considered a woman, why can't a TS woman be seen as a woman who was born with this condition which robbed her of female parts and who needs surgery to eliminate this? Post-op is used in the context of the transsexualism condition, not the transgendered lifestyle. Persons with transsexualism usually get the surgery eventually, while those with transgenderism usually do not. If someone is post-op, then technically, they are not a TS any longer, just a full member of their surgically corrected sex. Many assume the surgery to be medically unnecessary. However, those who genuinely have transsexualism need this surgery to prevent suicide, live the same lives as person born with the correct parts for their gender, be legally recognized as who they have always been, and to have the same lives as if they never had this condition. The surgery only changes the physical sex (the body) to the extent possible and has no bearing on gender (who you are). The official name for the corrective surgery is sex-reassignment, since it changes the body. Changing the gender would require brain surgery. A transsexual person is the opposite gender of the sex their body was born with. A transsexual man was born with a 'female' body, a transsexual woman was born with a 'male' body. Pre-op, non-op, post-op has nothing to do with who you are. Surgery or the lack of it doesn't change who you are. The 'sex' label at the end relates to who you are, not what you have below. Those with transsexualism are either pre-op or post-op, while TGs are non-op. Someone who genuinely has transsexualism will want the same parts as others with the same gender identity. Not all will be able to get surgery, but ability has nothing to do with motives nor desire. TG persons on the other hand don't typically identify with the "other gender" enough to want the corresponding parts for what they claim as their gender. Transgenderism is more about gender role or expression than gender identity. A MtF transgender person lives as a woman and will likely keep male genitals for life. A FtM transgender person lives a partially masculinized life. However, it is polite to refer to them as the gender they are expressing. Why would someone waste money on a dress if they didn't want to be called female pronouns?

Asked in Gay Lesbian and Bisexual
Am I gay for liking pre-op trans-gender women?
If you are attracted to her femininity and consider her to be a woman, then no, you are not gay, whether she's pre-op, post-op or no op. Likewise, if she considers herself a woman and is attracted to you, and you're a man, then she is also straight, even though she was born male. A transgender woman is a woman stuck in a man's body, and a transgender man is a man stuck in a woman's body. So, in other words, it's a case by case basis. It matters what gender you identify with and what gender you're attracted to. If the two are the same, then you are homosexual. If the two are different, you are straight. In your case, you are straight.
