Hate from trans activists | Peak Trans
Transfolk often complain of 'transmisogyny' – a term reportedly invented by Julia Serano and meaning 'hatred of transwomen'. This is an example of language appropriation by trans people. There is already a perfectly apt term for the hatred of them and that is 'transphobia' or, even more accurate, 'transmisia'. As those who call themselves 'transwomen' are male they can be – and obviously many are – misogynists but they can't be victims of misogyny unless they are genuinely mistaken for being born female. I therefore reject the notion of 'transmisogyny' but not 'trans misogyny' i.e. the misogyny of trans people, particularly the hatred from male born trans people against women who challenge trans ideology The TERF is a slur website collected many examples but has apparently now stopped doing so. The reason is not because there is any lessening of that hatred, so this page is devoted to more recent examples. Edited to add: see also this page on Tumblr. Notable themes include
