So, what is an antonym for the word?

An antonym is a word that is the opposite meaning of another. It comes from the Greek words “anti” for opposite and “onym” for name. Since language is complex, people may at times, disagree on what words are truly opposite in meaning to other words.

What is the word that means the opposite of a word?

What is the opposite of a boy?

They think that the opposite of "man" is "woman" and that in order to prove oneself the former they must do (perform) things that no woman can. But it makes good sense to suggest that the better antonym of "man" is "boy." To "perform masculinity" isn't about doing what women don't.
