What if we're not able to understand what you're trying to prohibit?
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

I hate Mexican bisexuals, who are older than fifty, who make over one hundred grand a year, who are crippled, who have had a sex change, and who aren't strictly heterosexual!

I haven't heard of two of these terms, so for your enjoyment, I am going to guess their meaning.

ableism,

This is the belief in superiority based on the ability to do something. Ablist behaviors include beating the disabled elderly and levitation.

transphobia

This is the fear of change. Synonyms include Amish Christianity, Environmental Protection, and Social Conservatism.

Victory. I got ableism right.

Transphobia is a misnomer. The trans- prefix is reserved for change or crossing, while the -phobia suffix is reserved for fears. This word somehow means hate of transsexuals. Fear and hate are very distinct emotions, and abusing the prefix "trans" is far too colloquial, probably based on the sexual slur. Notice we don't call racism N*ggerism. Anyways, the word was probably developed by illiterates or marketers, whichever.

What about conformism? Is that okay?

If so, then I officially declare that everybody in this thread is just like everybody else.
