Heterophobes? You mean...prejudiced against heterosexuals?

That's interesting. I'd argue that "heterophobia" could/should be replaced with a different term, because as a general rule heterosexuals don't face the kind of bigotry, hatred and violence that members of the LGBT2IQ community do, and as such have an inherent privilege. But I'm sure it could be possible for members of the queer community to hold prejudices against heterosexuals, especially if they've experienced homophobia in their lives.

I guess what I'm trying to say, in a nutshell, is that while straight people might experience prejudice from the queer community, they aren't marginalized as a group the way that members of the queer community have been...and I feel that prejudice is a little different than a "phobia", you know?

Sometimes it's just best to keep "intolerance" as such and not give it a special name.

Prejudice is ugly in all forms.

Hear, hear! I totally agree. Intolerance is intolerance no matter what name you put on it.

i don't think it's right to hate any person for their sexual orientation.

Heterophobia/homophobi a are both equally crappy and hurtful, just like racism goes both ways and does damage. It is important to remember though, who is at a disadvantage in society. To me a person who is angry and a minority is most likely hurting, not vicious.

I think if anything, I have gay friends that find themselves avoiding deeply religious people (typically Christian) at all costs. And the majority of the time, the Christians are straight people. It's not that they avoid any interaction with overtly religious people, but I'd say that they immediately dismiss the idea of having a constructive conversation about anything because of the deep seeded beliefs on both sides. I'm not saying it's right and I'm not saying it's logical, but I've seen it quite often.
