Zagria's article on the Paris Prefecture established that 'transvestism' was in use a full century before Hirschfeld supposedly coined the term.
Increased usage of MAAB (male assigned at birth), FAAB, AFAB (assigned female at birth) AMAB.
Increased usage of SOGI (sexual orientation and/or gender identity), more so than of ‘sex and gender diverse" SGD.
'trannie' has largely lost its meaning as the umbrella word, although still used in that sense by older people. It is now mainly used by drag queens.
Associated Press is discouraging the use of the word 'homophobia' 'as it is not a medical condition'. They have not ruled on 'transphobia'.
The APA re its DSM has proposed to drop Gender Identity Disorder and use Gender Dysphoria instead. At least the bad word 'disorder' is gone, but remember that Norman Fisk proposed 'gender dysphoria syndrome' in 1973 to re-medicalize the concept as 'transsexualism' had by then lost its medical connotations.
'cis' is beginning to be used by cis people.

Winner of the American Psychological Association Division 44 Transgender Research Award Prize. Abstract: "We assessed whether recent psychological literature on children reflects or contrasts with the zeitgeist of American Psychological Association's recent non-discrimination statement on 'transgender' and 'gender variant' individuals. Article records (N = 94) on childhood 'gender identity' and 'expression' published between 1999 and 2008 inclusive were evaluated for two kinds of cisgenderism, the ideology that invalidates or pathologises self-designated genders that contrast with external designations. Misgendering language contradicts children's own gender assignations and was less frequent than pathologising language which constructs children's own gender assignations and expression as disordered. Articles on children's gender identity/expression are increasingly impactful within psychology. Cisgenderism is neither increasing nor decreasing overall. Mental health professionals are more cisgenderist than other authors. Articles by members of an 'invisible college' structured around the most prolific author in this area are more cisgenderist and impactful than other articles. We suggest how authors and editors can implement American Psychological Association policy and change scientific discourse about children's genders.

Health care costs associated with treating a patient after self-castration were almost four times greater than having an elective outpatient surgical castration. The patient presented to the emergency department and underwent a bilateral inguinal exploration, ligation and removal of bilateral spermatic cords, and complicated scrotal exploration, debridement, and closure. She was admitted to the psychiatric service for a hospital stay of three days. The total bill was US $14,923, which would compare with US $4,000 for an elective outpatient orchiectomy in the patient's geographical area. Abstract.

- Eurobarometer found: only 8% of people in EU know a trans person personally and a striking 13% have no opinion on the prevalence of trans discrimination (compared with 8% for sexual orientation). In some countries up to a third would not know. 45% of people in the EU believe trans people are discriminated. The report points out that those knowing a trans person are much more likely to be aware of discrimination on grounds of gender identity.
