Slur for a person who’s transgender identity doesn’t check off all the “trans police” boxes. It is problematic because It implies that a person’s gender identity is for outsiders to decide. It suggests that there is only one way to transition. It marginalizes a significant number of trans folks who cannot access or do not want to medically transition. And further, it closets trans people who may feel fearful of rejection by the community. Avoid using this word.[37]
