Transmisogyny is a dislike of or strong prejudice against transgender women and transfeminine people.
The term was coined by Julia Serano in 2007. It describes a particular form of the intersection of transphobia and misogyny.
Trans women receive disproportionately higher attention for their transgression than trans men. Individuals on the trans female/feminine spectrum are culturally stigmatized not for failing to conform to gender norms per se but for their feminine gender expression and/or identities.
That’s why their experience is better described by transmisogyny rather than transphobia only.
