Umbrella term for someone with a set of beliefs about transgenderism, the most common one being that an individual needs some kind of gender dysphoria to identify as transgender. These beliefs can be harmless or directly harmful.

Non-radical transmedicalism is when someone is respectful with their beliefs and possibly supports groups such as non-binary identities, xenogender identities or neopronouns, whereas a radial transmedicalist can be actively exclusionary and go out of their way to invalidate individuals.
Person 1: “I hate transmedicalist people!”
Person 2: “Not all transmedicalists are bad.”

This word is often mistaken for the word "Truscum", mainly because truscum is an insult towards CERTIAN transmedicalists who believe gender dysphoria and/or gender incongruence is a requirement to be transgender. "Truscum" literally means "true scum" and is pronounced the same way as its meaning.

Transmeds (also called transmedicalists) are individuals who believe transitioning from one sex to another should be covered medically, either by the state or insurance.

The combination of all of these terms is Trumed or Trumedicalist (the tru coming from truscum and the med coming from medicalism/medicalist in transmed/transmedicalist)
My friend Tanya is an active transmedicalist speaker. Personally, I think that's pretty neat. I'm glad she does work to help the trans community!
