I don't flip burgers, I'm a CEO

Sexual identity, on its own terms
Transgender: The umbrella term for people whose gender identity or gender expression is different from the gender they were born with.
Also know as: Reality doesn't apply

Gender-queer: Refers to those who feel genderless or partially gendered.

Pronouns: Transgender people often prefer "ze" to he or she. Similarly, they prefer "hir" to his or her. When in doubt, ask a transgender person which pronoun is preferred.

This is just a sample of the twisted terminology from today's Fishwrapper.
