And having one of those words appear in the middle of our dinner-date is, um, anti-climatic in just about every sense of the word.And from a trans-feminist perspective, I would emphasize that what underlies trans-misogyny is nothing more than misogyny itself.It’s pretty easy to feel anger over such blatant sexism, and it immediately reminded me of some of my own experiences of feeling ignored at times in my own workplace.
