(compound noun | trans antagonist, noun referring to people | to antagonize, verb, -es, -ed, -ing)
Similar to transmisia and transphobia, trans-antagonism specifically focuses on the action associated with antagonizing trans people, like hate speech and bigoted media, hate crimes, trans-exclusive legislation, etc. Trans-antagonism is a tool by which cisnormativity seeks to “correct” trans+ people through coercion and force.
e.g. Charly had to drop his psychology class because the professor was incredibly trans-antagonistic, even in the early lectures barely dealing with trans topics.
