Struggling with Transmisia as a Trans Person

For those interested in why I’m using transmisia instead of transphobia, you can read up on it here, here, and here.

While I might not look it today, I used to be as transmisic as any TERF or anti-trans person you’d find on social media. I had a severe hatred for trans people, especially trans women, for most of my adult life and it took a lot for me to realize why.
