I suppose you could classify the butch look by being more of a transvestite of sorts, who seem as if they aim to 'look' more male. While a Transexual will actually have surgery to lose the feminine.

Now you're back looking stylised! ;) I always considered it a British word as I've never heard an American say it, definitely didn't think it was internationally known though so I just thought I'd enlighten you on probably one of the worst words ever!

Butch is typically reserved for lesbians who have short hair, look as if they 'aim' to appear more male than female.

Butch is simply to be a masculine female. Transsexual means you have gotten surgery to change over from one gender to the other. Transsexuals can be either male or female, of course - either a male who had surgery to become a female, or a female who had surgery to become a male. Butch generally refers to only women.

to me butch is a word to label people who do not meet societies norms regarding sexuality, in looks at least. A transexual is someone who lives life as the opposite gender

being "butch" is just having a masculine style if you are a girl, being transsexual means you actually want to surgically alter your body so that you have the genitals and appearance of the opposite gender.

I am not sure. But isn't transexual when you are one gender trapped in another gender's body?

Trannys are sometimes men that live as women, with or without male genitalia. I frequent the local gay bar and I know quite a few. Butch is just lesbians that choose to be more manly.
