Serano uses transmisogyny as a description of the unique violence and discrimination that trans-feminine people and trans women face (Serano, 49-52). Serano states that this transmisogyny often manifests in the form of trans-feminine people and trans women being deemed as hyperfeminine (Serrano, 53). Within these assumptions, trans-feminine people and trans women are accused of exaggerating their portrayal of femininity and making a caricature of it (Serano, 53). More concretely, it is shown with higher murders of trans-feminine and trans-women, particularly trans-feminine and trans-women of color; it is shown with street harassment of trans-feminine people and trans-women; it is shown with the disproportionately high levels of sexual violence that trans-feminine people and trans-women experience.
