Transmisogyny

(noun | transmisogynistic, adjective)

Originally coined by the author Julia Serano, this term highlights the intersectionality of misogyny and transphobia and how they are often experienced as a dual form of oppression by trans women and other AMAB trans people. “Women born women only” spaces are transmisogynistic as they categorically exclude trans women. e.g. When a talk show had radical feminists on it claiming trans women weren’t women, Sonya had to explain to her friend how this was transmisogyny at its core.
