STFU Transphobes

Transphobia refers to discrimination against transsexualism and transsexual or transgender people, based on the expression of their internal gender identity.

Whether intentional or not, transphobia can have severe consequences for the target of the negative attitude. Many transpeople also experience homophobia from people who incorrectly associate their gender identity with homosexuality. Attacking someone on the basis of a perception of their gender identity rather the perception of their sexual orientation is known as "trans-bashing", as opposed to "gay bashing".
