a tran, used as a term of endearment from one trans girl to another trans girl.

"hey fish, let's swim over to the G.L.O.S.S. show already"

"ya sure, i can't wait to make that pit into a fish bowl"

evolved from a hooker code term for cis women sex workers (1970s) aka girls who sell vagina (fish-scented junk) as opposed to ass. later referring to trans women (1980s), especially asians swimming in white scenes, who look so much like cis women that for all intents and purposes are cis. later (briefly), referring to girls who've had bottom surgery and are card-carrying members of the vaginosis crew. reclaimed circa 2016 to mean all trans women, including bricks, as a fuck-you to the gay male chaser scene; now considered beyond the pale when used to signal a person's genitalia.

used awkwardly by gay men to refer to cis-passing drag queens because they look so much like a trans woman. like when rich white boys call each other hood on the golf course.

used pejoratively by gay men to refer to trans men at the club in a desperate attempt to self-affirm their trans-exclusionary homosexuality, in the same way that str8 men think touching a dick will instantly turn them gay (as if they weren't gay already).

someone who provides emotional support in exchange for material support in a relationship, synonymous with sugar baby or bbg; counterpart to a sugar daddy. sex is often part of the exchange, but let’s be real, if being a glider was just about getting someone off that would be so easy that everyone would be doing it.

people who work several marks, or are just openly polyamorous, tend to call themselves gliders instead of babies, probably because of the freedom that “glider” implies. term is usually only spoken between providers, not with the johns, who would rather use custom pet names instead of transactional titles. glider is significantly gender-neutral and age-neutral, making it more a versatile term, ie. with tech workers, where the person providing emotional labor is probably older than the person with the dough.

derived from the f***ing adorable marsupials that steal your heart while crushing your soul with their big black eyes.
i get more respect from my marks ever since i evolved from sugar baby to sugar glider

technically just a trans girl who likes girls

more commonly used to mean a TMA trans who is culturally / aesthetically a dyke, regardless of their specific sexuality (bi/pan/ace/etc). a more aggressive term than trans lesbian.

also known as the people who've been getting shit done on the street while the rest of you LGBT "activists" bitch about gay marriage on facebook
trans dykes are good and pure

intentional mis-spelling of trans, used internally among trans people. commonly: "trains pride" "trains girl" "trainsexual" etc.

from this time when ru paul once mistakenly posted an image of Train Landscape (a painting by Ellsworth Kelley) thinking that it was an image of the trans flag because it also has some pretty stripes. Train Landscape is quickly outstripping the Monica Helms trans flag design as the most popular representation of trans pride, mostly bc everyone hates on the pink-and-blue version for being so damn infantalizing.

apparently gay oogles / train hoppers have been using this term for decades but no one cares what they say 'cause they don't exist on the internet
trains girls are real trains, fite me

when a deadname is somehow remembered on some secret medical record or google plus account even after you’ve spent months or years deleting paypals and updating hospital files and burning bridges. and then, like jacob marley, it somehow pops back up as a suggested username on some random tuesday decades later when you’re setting up a new pokemon go account and were least prepared to handle that trauma
my brand new iphone ghostnamed me this morning before i even had coffee, i have no idea where it found that info”

“oh shit, but u haven’t used any other name for the like 20 years i’ve known u... i... didnt even know u were trans tbh??

a girl who is trans

a casual umbrella term for any TMA trans person. more universally accepted than trans woman or trans feminine among non-binary people for some reason, maybe because of the presence of gender-neutral terms giiirl in gay culture and grrl in dyke culture.

preferable to MTF or AMAB because it signals the person's actual identity rather than reiterating mainstream society's perception of them
if you call me MTF or AMAB one more time instead of just a "trans girl" i'm going to give you a free vaginoplasty

a tran who spreads the trans virus, actively or unintentionally. usually someone who is emotionally accessible to cis people who are subconsciously questioning their gender (eggs), and can provide some minimum amount of emotional labor to blow that persons mind and/or offers them their first free hit of HRT.

a person who engages in the sport of hatching eggs, usually by flirting with str8 boys at the bar knowing that 10% of them will wake up tomorrow morning realizing they're not actually cis
zoe is the #1 hatcher this month, the community should buy zir a toaster
