Top definition
One who creates a ridiculously specific non-binary gender identity for themselves, and often repeatedly changes it, because it's seemingly the trendy thing to do. Often found on Tumblr.

Theoretically, they should be easy to criticise because what they do trivialises the struggles of people who are actually transgender. However, in practice, they are above criticism because calling them out on their bullshit often results in you being called a bigot.
I just read the Tumblr blog of someone who calls themselves a demiboy, genderfucked transqueer. Another fucking transtrender.

A Transtrender person is simply a person who identifies as transgender as a trend, often than not they will not actually understand what it means to be transgender. This term is not to be mistaken for a person who is gender non-comforming as it is demeaning when used in that way.
Person A: I took a personality quiz and it said i'm transgender, so i am now using that label.

Person B: Jessica please reserch what being trans is before someone calls you a transtrender, you twat.

1. A slur used by transmedicalists to call any non-dysphoric transgender person, that implies that they aren’t REAL trans people and are just identifying as trans to be “cute” or “trendy.”

Of course, non-dysphoric trans are just as legitimate as dysphoric trans people, and dysphoric trans aren’t actually “cis people pretending to be trans for attention.” Which is why this term is only a slur and not a legitimate label.

2. This term is also sometimes used for any transgender who’s gender identity falls outside of the gender binary. Some truescum, believe there are only two genders, so any transgender who identifies as any gender besides “man” and “woman” is a fake trans person.

This of course is not true either since non-binary trans identities are just as valid as binary trans identities. Which is why this term is only a slur.

Trans guy: “Hi, I’m James and I’m a trans guy. I don’t really have any physical dysphoria, so I don’t want to surgically transition, but I do plan on socially and legally transitioning and even take some hormones.”

Truescum: “You’re a transtrender! All trans people MUST hate their bodies and want to completely alter it, otherwise they’re not a REAL trans person!”

Trans guy: “Don’t be a truescum, medicalizing trans experiences is harmful to the trans community and implies that transness is literally only a mental disorder with no basis in biology or neurological science, so just stop.”
