Raymond is also known for "The Transsexual Empire: the making of the she-male", [ [http://worldcat.org/isbn/0807762725 book] ] a 1979 book on transsexuality, a manifesto which contends that male-to-female transsexuals are part of a plot by men to infiltrate the women's movement. Raymond maintains that transsexualism is based on the "patriarchal myths" of "male mothering," and "making of woman according to man's image." Raymond is widely cited as one of the architects of transphobic, or anti-trans, feminism. She claims this is done in order "to colonize feminist identification, culture, politics and sexuality," adding:
