It’s much better to refer to use the term “transgender.” If you are talking about a woman, you could say “a transgender woman” or “a trans woman,” but referring to a whole type of people as “transgenders” is actually derogatory similar to calling African American people “blacks.” It’s reductionist and reduces their identity to their trans-ness, which isn’t really cool.
