Got questions about transgender people? We’ve got the answers. The ways that transgender people are talked about in pop culture, academia and science are constantly changing, particularly as people’s awareness, knowledge and openness about transgender people and their experiences grow.
Transgender is an umbrella term used to describe people whose gender identity (sense of themselves as male or female) or gender expression differs from socially constructed norms associated with their birth sex. This includes androgynous, bigendered and gender queer people, who tend to see traditional concepts of gender as restrictive.

Why can being a stay-at-home parent lead to more unhappiness than if you had stayed at your job?
It’s a familiar and growing — though little-talked about — problem, as more women (and a growing number of men) are giving up or stepping back their careers to raise their family.

Why can exercising for reasons other than losing weight better motivate you to get out of bed and go to the gym?
Those seeking long-term weight loss and better health exercise the least, studies have shown. Short-term gains like energy are better motivators.

Why can talking about your vacation, both before you leave and after you get back, make you remember it more fondly?
The sad thing about vacations is that they end. However much fun you're having, you always go back to day-to-day annoyances.

How can a TV commercial that includes sex or violence backfire and end up making you not want to buy their product?
Advertisers hoping to sway consumers might want to rethink running spots within media with violent or sexual themes, and might do better if the ads themselves have a G-rating.
