Transmisia, from trans in reference to transgenderness + -misia meaning "hatred", is irrational hatred of transgender people. It is more often called "transphobia", based on -phobia meaning fear of transgender people, but such fear by itself is not the problem. As with any form of bigotry, the problem is when the individual acts on their fear and becomes hateful towards the people they fear.
