The term tranny and the porn industry[edit]

Tranny is a common term in the porn industry for male-to-female preoperative transexuals (also commonly referred to as shemales or chicks-with dicks). The usage of tranny on porn is common enough I think it deserves a mention. --50.152.139.176 (talk) 10:31, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

"Trans"[edit]

So if "Tranny" is slang, how come "trans" is in the article? What is "The trans community"? I doubt transgender, transsexual, transvestite people etc. all consider themselves part of one group: so it is equally ambivalent and possibly needlessly offensive.
