biphobia

The range of negative attitudes, intolerance and resentment of bisexual+ individuals, that results in the erasure and invisibility of bisexuals (bisexual erasure).

Biphobia is sadly not restricted to heterosexual people, as bisexual+ individuals have also experienced biphobia from members of the LGBT+ community, such as negative and intolerant attitudes towards bisexuals from gay men and lesbians.

Somebody who possesses biphobia can be described as biphobic.
