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?
