Transgenderism is a somewhat dated word meaning "being transgender," which has been misappropriated by transphobic pundits and spoken about as though it were an ideology. This latter use is a shibboleth for members of the far right and trans-exclusionary radical feminists (if there is still any difference between the two).
1. There is nothing wrong with transgenderism; the problems are caused by transphobia.
2. I don't subscribe to the ideology of transgenderism, therefore I don't have to care about the violence transgender people encounter.

A concise word for referring to anything and everything within and behind the state, experience, theory, ideology, perspective, premise, perspective, belief, philosophy, etc, of that which is, was, or can be "transgender".

It is simply the corollary of words like "homosexuality", "gayness", "lesbianism", or "bisexuality".

The word itself has no positive or negative implication. Anyone who tells you that it does, is an overreactive activist.
I'm so tired of arguments online over transgenderism.

Prejudice, stereotyping, discrimination or antagonism by an individual, community, or institution against a transgender individual.

Words with the suffix -ism typically portray an ideology, why not change a word used for hate speech to a word used like racism and sexism?
All that transgenderism in the media lately is just propaganda!

The phenomenon of transgender people often only being interested in other trans people, or being a trans chaser while also being trans; also referred to as T4T
I find myself being for T4T every day; the labor of constantly educating every cis person I get involved with has really pushed me into transgenderism. Never fucking with another cissy. Other trans people are hotter anyway.
