    between homophobia and transphobia in straight men, since they don't distinguish between gays and transsexuals.

    "Transphobe" was coined for people like Janice Raymond, who is a lesbian. She is not homophobic (at least towards gay women) but she is very transphobic.

    Calling straight men "transphobes" is really just a way of getting the meme out. The word is still unfamiliar in the mainstream and they are a fine excuse for using it.
