autogynephilia

Coined by Ray Blanchard, it is the sexual arousal of viewing one’s self as the opposite gender (typically of a man viewing himself as a woman); generally used incorrectly as a psychoanalytical basis when viewing non-heterosexuality and transgender individuals. (Serano, An Open Letter to the New Yorker)
