Ettina Posted February 15, 2017 Share Posted February 15, 2017 I came across this interesting argument by a bisexual person: http://potatovirgin.tumblr.com/post/114181442499/cisphobia-is-real They (I'm not sure what pronouns they use) argue that biphobia by LG people is mostly heterophobia directed at bisexuals because they resemble heterosexuals a bit too much. They also suggest that a similar mechanism is probably underlying binary trans hating nonbinary people. They argue that heterophobia and cisphobia aren't universal enough to seriously oppress their actual targets, but the people who are 'in-between' get a double wammy (eg bisexuals get both homophobia and heterophobia). Personally, I'd argue that aros and aces also are in a similar position in many cases. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
