Transmisia

Transmisia

(noun | transmisic, adjective)

An attempt to replace the term transphobia. This is in order to avoid the connotation of fear associated with the -phobia suffix. This is to better deflect statements like, “I’m not afraid of trans people, I just think they’re [insert negative concept here].” The suffix -misia means hatred, and is the opposite of the suffix -philia. Unfortunately, the suffix -misia is often co-opted by fascist groups. So many people stay away from using this term due to that association. It also suffers from a lack of immediate recognition as transphobia is easily deciphered by people who have heard about homophobia.  

e.g. Bertrand had to stop watching a popular sitcom because of how much transmisic humor it used.
