    I'm writing my English coursework ( a bigoted letter to the council about something) my sentence is " He should be immediately withdrawn from his role , illegalising homosexuality in the process." (I don't actually believe what I'm writing , so don't hate on me!)

    If illegalising doesn't make sense , how else could I word it ? Thanks.

    It is a word that exists, but I can't say I've actually ever seen it anywhere. Perhaps use words like criminalise, outlaw, or prohibit.

    Same for me , but then when I typed the word on TSR it did have the red line , which is why I'm not sure - but i'm gonna go for "criminalising" now anyway. Thanks for the help.

    I'd say "to make (something) illegal" for the opposite of "to legalise".

    Well TSR thinks that legalise is not a word so pay it no credit. It's probably due to TSR using American spelling conventions for some reason.
