The term Autogynephilia

I myself no longer use the term but simply call it cross gender arousal while Serano has coined the term female embodiment fantasies (or FEFs for short). The point is that this experience could just as easily be a symptom of being trans and gynephilic instead of being the cause of gender dysphoria.

Autogynephilia is a term coined by Ray Blanchard, meaning "love oneself as a woman".  Sexual arousal is associated with the word and I, for one, have hated this term since the first day I saw it.  Well. Joanna is in good company with Julia Serano...they no longer recognize the term.  Good for them.  Read more at, Why Julia Serano is absolutely correct.
