acephobia

The range of negative attitudes, intolerance and resentment of asexual individuals and/or individuals on the asexual spectrum. This results in the erasure and invisibility of asexuals (asexual erasure).

Acephobia is unfortunately not restricted to the heterosexual community, as asexuals have, and continue to face, opposition from members of the Queer community; particularly, but not restricted to, asexual people who are not homoromantic or biromantic.
