About

Anti-trans is advocacy which has the net effect of needlessly working against the social rights or equality of transgender people. It is not necessarily malicious in intent, though it always seems to inevitably point towards unspoken transmisia as a root cause.

Anti-trans advocacy takes a variety of forms.

As overtly religious arguments lost traction over the late 2010s (having shed most of their credibility during their war on gay people), people holding those views have found more subtle ways to lend their ideas plausibility and have reoriented their focus toward criticism of transgenderness, which lags behind homosexuality in its popular acceptance.

There are also a growing number of self-identified feminists and "pro-woman" advocates (not necessarily feminists) who represent themselves as believing that trans rights represent a threat to women's safety. Since these people do not represent the majority of feminists (or even the majority of cisgender women), they have become referred to as "trans-exclusionary radical feminists" or "TERFs".

The TERF branch of anti-trans advocacy most notably represents a growing political force in the UK, where trans rights have been well established for some time but legal improvements and updates are needed in order to accommodate improved understanding.
