English doesn't appear to have any kind of true antonym for "prefer"

{qaqHa'} doesn't work for me as an exact opposite, since {-Ha'} means that
the {qaq}ing was undone or misdone (so I used to {qaq} it but don't
anymore, or I said I {qaq} something mistakenly when I didn't really {qaq}

TKD: "This negative suffix implies not merely that something is not done
(as does -be'), but that there is a change of state: something that was
previously done is now undone. For convenience, it will here be translated
as undo, but it is closer to the English prefixes mis-, de-, dis- (as in
misunderstand, demystify, disentangle). It is also used if something is
done wrongly."
