WARNING: IF YOU ARE TRANSGENDER, THIS DICTIONARY MAY CAUSE YOU IRREVERSIBLE PSYCHIC DAMAGE I have been putting together this work-in-progress dictionary or glossary of 4tran terminology as a fun little project due to a weird fascination with this terrible subculture. I suspect there may also be some potential inaccuracies within my definitions as, unfortunately, I have not yet reached the maximum possible level of brain worms. So, if you have any information, suggestions, or corrections, please let me know! ● Brainworms - The often unintentional internalization of transphobic ideas and terms that results from consuming harmful content. Within the context of 4chan, it refers to the increased dysphoria, body dysmorphia, and general insanity that commonly occurs when you start using and understanding absurd terms such as “Gorillamoding AGP Giga-rapehons”. This entire dictionary will likely give you some amount of brain worms. More succinctly, brainworms are internalized transphobic ideas common to 4chan and adjacent communities, propagated by trans people. MTFs ● MTF - a male to female transitioner, a trans woman. ● AMAB - Assigned Male at Birth ● Alice - A common name for trans girls, is memed within the phrase "take your pills alice!" ● Boymoder - A usually younger transgirl who is in the process of transitioning or desires to transition, but is still presenting as a boy and has not yet fully come out. ● Manmoder - a male to female trans woman who is still presenting as a masculine male. This term is used in contrast to boymoder, who are considered to be more youthful, effeminate, androgynous, and cute. ● COGIATI - COmbined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory, is a test developed by webcomic author Jennifer Diane Reitz, a transsexual woman who designed it "specifically for the uncertain pre-transitional Male-to-Female gender dysphoric". ● Discord tranny - A trans woman who spends far too much time on Discord, an online instant messaging app. ● Female brained bottoms - A bottom who has the brain and general personality of a female, usually referring to that of a trans woman. ● Gorillamoder - An extremely masculine trans woman who is likely very large and hairy.

Intended to be a shorthand for the term transgender. ● Tranner - A trans person, especially an MTF trans person. Originates from 4chan and typically refers to trans people from 4chan specifically, mimicking 4chan slang “channer”. ● Transgender - A person who does not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth and takes efforts to transition into the gender they do identify with, which may include social, legal, and medical transition. Transgender is a more modern term coined in the 80s and popularized in the 90s to help bridge the transsexual and transvestite communities, by recognizing commonalities between them and enabling “transvestites”, formerly barred from receiving HRT due to not wishing to pursue bottom surgery, to undergo medical transition through the insurance system. ● Transsexual - An older term for trans people coined by Magnus Hirschfeld, who first documented trans people in the West. Transsexual people experience a gender identity that is inconsistent with their assigned sex and desire to permanently transition to the sex with which they identify, seeking medical assistance to help them align their body with their identified sex or gender. Formerly used to refer to only trans people who pursued bottom surgery, currently used more flexibly to refer to anyone who medically transitions. ● Transvestite - Transvestism is the practice of dressing in a manner traditionally associated with the opposite sex. An older term for trans people coined by Magnus Hirschfeld, to distinguish between Transsexuals, who were interested in pursuing bottom surgery and medical transition, and those who merely dressed up as the opposite sex. Transsexualism was used to refer to those who were interested in the sex of the opposite gender, and transvestism was used to refer to interest in the clothes of the opposite gender. Many people formerly considered Transvestites did identify as the opposite gender, and did undergo hormone replacement therapy. The term Transgender was later coined to bridge the gap in the community in order to refer to everyone who identified as the opposite gender, rather than separating between sex and clothes. ● Troon - Transgender Goon. A slur used for transgender people originating from Something Awful, but now largely used by the Kiwifarms and Lolcow communities. ● Trooning out - The act of becoming trans, publically starting your transition, and irreversibly realizing you are trans. Carries the connotation that doing such is shameful, or that the trans person lacked agency in their realization. ● T4T - Trans for Trans. This refers to trans people seeking other trans people for dating or hook-up purposes. It can also refer to an attitude of general solidarity between trans people supporting each other. ● Deadname - A person's birth-assigned name from pre-transition. AGE ● Youngshit - a person who transitioned at a very young age, to the point that it gave them a perceived unfair advantage in their ability to pass. ● Midshit - A person who transitioned at an age somewhere between that of a youngshit and an old shit. This was generally considered to be 20-30 but has been memed into a much younger age and differs wildly, depending on who you ask. ● Oldshit - A person who transitioned at an older age to the point that it gives them a disadvantage in their transition and general passability. This used to be considered around 30+ but has been memed down to around 16+, depending on who you ask. ● Turboyoungshit / Gigayoungshit - A trans person who transitioned at an EXTREMELY young age. They likely started blockers as soon as they hit puberty and their endocrine systems were never even touched by anything aside from cross-sex hormones. ● Jurassicshit / Ancientshit TRANS INFIGHTING ● Truscum - Short for "True Transsexual Scum", A trans person who believes that you need dysphoria to be trans or that transgenderism is a serious medical issue and should thus be treated as such. Truscums often hate people who hold beliefs such as gender being a social construct and xenogenders being valid. ● Tucute - Short for "too cute to be cis", a term used by truscum transmedicalists to imply any non-dysphoric or xenogender trans people aren’t real trans people and are just identifying as trans to be “cute” or “trendy.” Usually applied to afab nonbinary people or non-transitioning trans men. ● Trutrans - A person who believes themselves to be genuinely transgender in contrast to other people who are believed to be faking. ● Trender / Transtrender - A person accused of claiming a trans identity to be fashionable, rather than because they are actually transgender. They are often said to not experience any real discomfort with their assigned gender and often do not take active measures to pass as the gender they identify as. Xenogender people are also commonly accused of being trenders. ● Hugboxing - A pejorative term for affirming someone regardless of their appearance. Hugboxing is a type of Toxic Positivity, where negativity, criticism, or concern is not allowed, even when it is specifically requested by the subjects being discussed. Many trans people develop brainworms due to seeking more edgy communities out of a distaste for communities that hugbox. BLANCHARD ● Blanchard - A sexologist who is largely discredited within mainstream science. He came up with a typology of trans women that breaks them into Autogynephilia (AGP) and Homosexual Transexual (HSTS). ● AGP - Autogynephilia, a pseudo-scientific term that is part of Blanchard's typology of transsexuals. Purports that trans women who are bisexual, asexual, or attracted to women transitioned primarily to fulfill their sexual fetish of being perceived as a woman. ● HSTS - Homosexual Transexual, a pseudo-scientific term that is part of Blanchard's typology of transsexuals. Under his typology, Homosexual Transexuals are supposedly homosexual people who transition in order to attract straight partners.

Proposes that bisexual trans women are autogynephilic straight men that only appear to be attracted to men, because they are actually fulfilling the sexual fetish of seeing themselves in a feminine sex role. This helps make Blanchard’s typology unfalsifiable by proposing that exceptions to it are simply lying. ● AAP - Autoandrophillia, a pseudo-scientific term that is part of Blanchard's typology of transsexuals. Blanchard does not believe this is real, and proposed it merely to satisfy a gender parity with AGP. The paraphilic tendency of someone assigned female at birth to be sexually aroused by the thought of becoming a male. ● AGAMP - autogynandromorphile. A person who fetishizes the idea of becoming a trans woman or a woman with a penis, and then transitions with this sexually gratifying idea as their primary motive. ● AGAMPP - autogynandromorphophile.

BOYS ● Boypussy/Bussy - A cis boy's butthole in the context of anal sex or a trans man’s vagina. ● Boyremove - This usually refers to the act of a transgirl being dominated and overpowered by a masculine sexual partner, such that they feel so feminine in comparison that their socialized “boyness” becomes removed during the process. ● Boysmell - The smell of a boy. The process of transitioning can make this smell more appealing and arousing. ● Boywife - A male that assumes the more feminine and submissive role within a long-term committed relationship with another more masculine male. ● Femboy - A young man or boy who is generally considered to be naturally cute or androgynous in their form, while also presenting in a feminine manner. ● Femman - A more masculine-bodied male that uses some amount of female gender presentation. ● HRT femboy - A feminine male that uses HRT to maintain or enhance feminine features without identifying as a trans woman.

Notable for recommending lower doses of hormones and hormone levels than would be effective to produce effective results and recommending wait lists as a way of gatekeeping trans people to make sure they’re actually trans. PASSING ● Pass - The ability or incidence of being regarded by others as a gender, or as cisgender, without needing to explicitly inform them. ● Passoid - a person who passes as the gender they have transitioned into. ● Anglefrauding / Anglefagging - Using extreme angles within selfies and photographs to make yourself pass better than in real life. ● Auschwitzmoding - Being extremely skinny and underweight.

Nonbinary people are frequently accused of enbycope as a way of dismissing their nonbinary identity, because 4chan doesn’t really believe in nonbinary people. ● Femboycope - When a trans woman is either not ready to accept that they are MTF or cannot pass as such, so they tell themselves and other people that they are a femboy instead because it's more comfortable than the alternative. ● Permamanmoder - An MTF trans woman who is in a state of permanently presenting as a man due to repression, not being out yet, or any number of other potential reasons.

The midface is extremely expensive and painful to adjust with surgery, even among gender-affirming facial surgeries. ● Gridlock - A word that many trans women easily mistake for “girldick”. ● Peener - a penis. ● Radial Spacing of Pores - An esoteric means of clocking trans people by looking at the spacing of their pores.
