Usage notesEdit

  A user suggests that this English entry be cleaned up, giving the reason: "The reference doesn't proscribe it anymore. Once: "Transgender woman [...] They may shorten to trans woman. (Note: trans woman, not "transwoman.")". Now: "". 'nother ref or "did proscribe"?".
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) or the talk page for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.

Some references, such as the GLAAD Media Reference Guide, specifically recommend the spaced spelling (trans woman) and proscribe the unspaced spelling (transwoman).
