trans woman


A male-to-female transgender or transsexual person who was assigned male at birth, but identifies as female

Cognoscenti use the terms trans woman and its synonym, male-to-female transsexual, for individuals who have not been physically re-assigned/transitioned and prefer the simple word, women if the process is complete. Some take issue with the loss of the space between trans and women–transwomen, which they believe implies a third gender. 

Synonyms MTF, trans-woman, transwoman
