A million and one posts have been made about this, but I’ll say it again that it takes a whole lot of ignorance to claim that these things don’t exist. Allow me to educate you all on the definition of racism, courtesy of Google…
Nowhere in this definition is oppression mentioned. Not even once. The simplest form of the definition is prejudice for or against a given race. And if some of you racism specialists—you know who you are, the ones who constantly make derogatory comments about white people and talk about how horrible they are—aren’t prejudiced against whites, then I could just as easily say that the tree outside my window is getting up and walking away. Racism, while it AFFECTS some races more than others, is not exclusive of any race. You can be racist against anyone.
And the same applies to homophobia. Homophobia is defined in simplest terms as aversion to or prejudice against homosexuals. Assuming that homophobia, heterophobia, transphobia, et cetera all work the same etymologically, then heterophobia, cisphobia, and others do definitely exist. It is entirely possible to hate cis people, and straight people. Maybe that hate is less impactful in our lives, but it is equally real.
And I shouldn’t even have to say it, but to be perfectly clear, it works with misandry too. It simply refers to a dislike of men; nowhere is oppression mentioned in the definition.
