I’ve looked it up and I can’t find anything that explains it, would you mind explaining what transandrophbia is and how it’s different from transphobia (if it is)?
Sure, I'd be more than happy to!
What is transandrophobia?
Transandrophobia (also referred to as transmisandry) is usually explained as "transphobia against transmasc people (or people perceived as transmasc people)." It is not an intersection of transphobia and misandry. I would personally describe it more as an intersection of transphobia and butchphobia, because it's the demonization of masculine traits in people who society expects to be feminine, but who "chose masculinity" instead. Most people who perpetuate transandrophobia view transmasc people not as men, but as ""masculine females.""
Transphobia is bigotry against any and all trans people, and doesn't focus on masculinity or femininity. It's just a general hatred of all trans people.
So who exactly is affected by transandrophobia?
Transmasc people are the main target of transandrophobia, but anyone who is perceived as transmasc, and pretty much any gnc women (cis and trans) can be targets as well.
What does transandrophobia look like?
Transandrophobia comes in many forms, but here are some of the more common ones:
Hyperinvisibility and silencing - Transmasc people suffer from a severe lack of representation in media, and any representation we do have is often ignored. This means that the majority of society has absolutely no idea that transmasc people exist. This leads to us not being included in conversations about transness.
Medical discrimination - Because testosterone is a controlled substance, it's much harder for transmasc people to get hrt. On top of this, if a transmasc person has legally changed their gender marker, they can be denied coverage for medical care that is legally consider to be "for women." This can result in transmasc people dying because they cannot get the care they need.
Coerced detransition/desisting - Transmasc people are often targeted by terfs and manipulated into thinking they are just "dysphoric females" and coerced into desisting or detransitioning. Transmasc people are uniquely vulnerable to this kind of abuse because of the way we are frequently ostracized from the wider queer community and because of the isolation this causes. Terfs view us as helpless, lost, confused little women who need saving from the big evil Trans Cult.
Infantilization and demonization of masculinity - The two main transmasc stereotypes are "uwu little bean boi," applied to any transmasc person who presents as even kinda femme, and "gross nasty stinky trans man," applied to any transmasc person who is deemed as too masculine. And that's all we get. We are either "precious special little babies" or "disgusting evil man."
But this has gotten kinda long, and this is really kinda the basic info you need to know about transandrophobia, so I'm gonna stop here so I can eat my dinner. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Okay I was ready to let this slide until I saw that OP was blocking any trans men who so much as put in the tags that "tme" trans people also get shit for performing masculinity, and I was able to see that they had made other transandrophobic posts on their blog before I was blocked.
Just to be clear, there is a lot more support for trans men, transmascs, and afab non binary people who don't want to transition than there is for trans women, transfems, and amab non binary people, as OP suggested. But the reason for that is the same reason that there isn't more encouragement for transfem folks to transition - masculinity is equally as discouraged in transmasc spaces, and that's because of terf rhetoric.
There's a whole lot of support for transmascs and afab non binary folks that don't transition, and even more that choose to be feminine, but very little for transmascs and afab non binary folks that DO transition and, more specifically, present as masculine.
This is largely because terfs discourage all masculinity and, when they're not outright telling us that testosterone will turn us into big hairy monsters full of uncontrollable rage, or that we're traitors and oppressors, they're trying to "gently" convince us that we don't need to transition, and that we should continue to present as feminine.
And not every post needs to be about transmascs. There is a need to express the hardships and oppression unique to transfems, even when those issues overlap with experiences faced by other trans people, and I totally agree with discussions that focus solely on how those issues impact transfems. We should all be mad that trans women, transfems, and amab non binary people are pressured into performing femininity, but not at the expense of other trans people. You can be mad about an issue without throwing other trans people under the bus.
(Note: I do not know the OP's pronouns, and they've blocked me. Additionally, OP suggested that the transmascs in the comments make their own posts, and so this is my post.)

Hello everyone! My name is Luxas (he/him)! Please ignore my dead name on the link.
I’m never really on this app anymore since my older and more popular blog got deleted. But I am really in need and can’t do it without help anymore. Long story short, back in quarantine, my partner and I moved into a fixer upper. I go way more in detail in the go fund me description. That was a bad idea. Now we are finally able to move out, but the issue is, we are paying bills at the old house and new one, which is impossibly out of our budget.
I’m currently working as an assistant manager working almost every day. $12 an hour is not enough to survive, let alone pay bills at 2 houses. Anything helps, even a share. Bills pulled at my old house at 4am and now we are back to no money like yesterday before pay day.
Also, please enjoy the cover photo, it’s the weirdest pictures I have of my animals!

Successful trans men
I wish I knew about men like these growing up, I wish I knew that trans men could be successful after a lifetime of never seeing anyone ‘like me’ excelling in life. So here are some trans men - some that you may have heard of, some that you may not - that are successful in a range of careers. Never let being trans hold you back, never think you can’t do something, never think there is not a place for you.

HEARTSONG: Finding your way after you’ve lost it.
IDs under the cut!
[ID 1: A short comic about gender identity. The cover page is an overview of an emerald green ocean. Text reads: “HEARTSONG / BY BECKETT ATTICUS.”]
[ID 2: A child is tidepooling in ankle-deep water. Their hair is blonde and chin length, and they are wearing a pink T-shirt. Two seagulls fly overhead. The child picks up a brilliant purple mussel shell, and their eyes go wide. Sunbeams break through the gray clouds ahead of them. Text reads: “MAYBE YOU HAD SOMETHING. JOY, OR PASSION. SOMETHING THAT MADE YOUR HEART SING. AND MAYBE YOU LOST IT.”]
[ID 3: Three panels shows the child’s hair growing longer. In the third, they are curled up with their face to their hands. Then, a series of closeups of hands on their hair, and a pair of scissors that snip a long strand. Text reads: “MAYBE IT’S BEEN GONE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. MAYBE YOU HAVE DESPAIRED - BUT KNOW THIS: A DAY WILL COME WHEN IT WILL ALL SLIDE INTO PLACE.”]
[ID 4: The child, a teenager now, puts a hand on the mirror and looks at himself. His hair is cropped short, and a brilliant blue sky reflects in the mirror behind him. There is a close-up of him in a baseball cap, then of him doing a testosterone shot. Another close-up of his lower jaw with sparse stubble, and of him buttoning up a green shirt - top surgery scars are visible. A close-up of his eyes, and then of ocean water. Text reads: “AND YOU WILL RECOGNIZE WHAT WAS MISSING. AND THEN, WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT,”]
[ID 5: He is an adult now. He stands in ankle-deep water on the beach, surrounded by tidepools, a lighthouse in the distance. He picks up a shimmering mussel shell, smaller in his hands this time. He stands to face the light, and sunbeams break through the cloud cover. Text reads: “IT WILL COME BACK AND YOUR HEART WILL SING ONCE MORE.”]
