Transgender Terminology Explained #6842 : “Pigs In Wigs”
December 2, 2014
“Pigs In Wigs” (PIW) or “Pig In A Wig” (PIAW) is a term coined by male transgender community members, particularly those who are male-attracted and come from gay culture, who wanted to distance themselves from the virulent aggressive masculinity, sexual violence, and lazy grooming presentation of heterosexual male cross-dressers who transitioned to become “male lesbians”. [See also: “Brick”].
“I want to be a woman but goddamn if I don’t just feel like a pig in a wig”.
“Don’t go this weekend. Fantasia Fair is strictly Pigs in Wigs”
This term is descriptive and not usually considered a slur. It is a gay and trans community term.
