Please write trans women as two words. A trans woman is a woman who is trans. Adjective +noun. This is not German — we don’t make them one word.

It’s not tallwomen, it’s tall women. It’s not lefthandedwhitewomen, it’s left-handed White women.

It’s not transwomen, it’s trans women (or Transgender women).

And the reason it matters is that TERFs make it a point to say ‘transwomen’ to deliberately and maliciously separate us from ‘women’ as a demographic.
