Trans women have become culturally associated with the violence they face, both in sympathy and in stigmatization. The historian Jules Gill-Peterson looks at how this came about in her book: A brief history of transmisogyny. This week we talk about how panic around transfemininity is shaped by broader forces of colonialism, segregation and class interests.

This episode was co-hosted by Gene Demby and BA Parker, produced by Jess Kung and Xavier Lopez, and edited by Leah Donnella. Our engineer was James Willetts.
