Welcome to Social Justice Wiki!
SJWiki wishes to document, explain, and through this offer support to any activism that is part of the greater social justice movement, e.g., feminism, the LGBT movement, anti-fascism, the civil rights movement, the queer movement, no borders and migrant solidarity movements, the trans movement, the fat acceptance movement, the body positive movement, and so on. By the same token, we want to debunk, document, and provide commentary on reactionary movements, that work to corrode or derail advancements in social justice.

They can include trolling someone, threatening someone, making offensive jokes, using slurs, acting violent or intimidating, demanding or even criticizing anger from a marginalized person, demanding that a marginalized person change their methods for addressing privilege and a host of other things that are design to control the means of communication and discourse.||”|
Transmisogyny (or trans-misogyny) is the oppression of trans women and trans feminine people, more generally. It exists at the intersection between transphobia and misogyny. As with all intersectional issues, there are forms of (deadly) oppression unique to trans feminine people that are suffered neither by cisgender women nor trans men.
The word was coined by Julia Serano in her book Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity.
