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.

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.

sympathetic transgenderism is a lesser known phenomenon in which the friend of a transgender person may experiment or toy with the notion of being transgendered themselves. this person may do this to better understand their friend, or better understand their own sexual identity. sympathetic transgender people may experiment by wearing clothes opposite to their usual gender assigned attire, joining trans pride parades and using genital prosthetics.
