Etymology[edit]

transsexual +‎ -ism

Noun[edit]

transsexualism (uncountable)

  1. Transsexuality; the state of being transsexual.
    • 1997, A. Spencer Bergstedt, Transition and Beyond, page 28:
      Transfolk are not covered in any applicable laws like Title VII or the ADA - in fact, transsexualism is explicitly excluded from the ADA. Therefore, you have no causes of action against an employer based on federal law.
    • 2012, Patrick Slattery, Curriculum Development in the Postmodern Era
      Being a transsexual is not something that can be ignored or suppressed forever. Unlike the fascinations of the cross dresser or the partially altered transgenderist, the absolute compulsion of classical transsexualism is a matter of life and death.
