transphobia 

Reminder to everyone: when you say "women and trans women/men and trans men" you are implying trans people are not the gender they say they are. If you're talking about an experience specific to trans women (such as being rejected from abused women's shelters because of transphobia) then you can talk about cis women and trans women and the differences in those experiences. But in every context you bring them up, you should be asking yourself "is the fact that they're trans relevant to my point or am I making an arbitrary distinction just to keep people in separated categories?"

If you like women, just say you're attracted to women. If you wanna be clear that includes trans women, or nonbinary women, say that. Don't say "women AND trans women" because those aren't separate. You don't have to be attracted to every single trans woman you meet to acknowledge they are women, just like you don't have to be atttacted to every single cis woman you meet to acknowledge they're women.

@squeedoodle I like this (what you wrote, not that you had to write it). It's a good distinction that you don't have to be attracted to every woman to be into women. In fact, it seems rather distracting to artificially separate out the subgroups you might not individually be attracted to.
