Transphobia: a Price Worth Paying for Gender Identity Disorder?

Dr Sam Winter

Transgenderism is regarded by Western psychiatry as a mental disorderTransphobia, on the other hand, is not. Expressed in daily acts of prejudice and discrimination, it impairs the quality of life and health of transpeople worldwide. Results are now available from a recent international study of transphobia. Led by the author and conducted in seven countries worldwide (Malaysia and the USA (both identified in this study as comparatively transphobic societies), UK and Philippines (both comparatively transaccepting) and China, Singapore and Thailand (all intermediate)), the findings suggest five important components of transphobia.
