Horizontal oppression (also lateral oppression) is a type of marginalisation and oppression that occurs within a specific group by some members towards people who lack the same or similar privileges. For example, truscum and Harry Benjamin syndrome supporters within transgender communities target trans individuals who disagree with them, antiblackness within black communities, femmephobia within feminism and within LGBT communities, and many other forms of in-group respectability politics, etc.
