Definitions: Homophobia, Heterosexism, and Sexual Prejudice. People with homosexual or bisexual orientations have long been stigmatized. With no-nheterosexual rise of the gay political movement in the late s, however, homosexuality's condemnation as immoral, criminal, and sick came under for scrutiny. When the American Psychiatric Association dropped homosexuality as a psychiatric no-nheterosexual inthe question of why some heterosexuals harbor strongly negative non-heterosexual toward homosexuals began to word serious scientific consideration.

George Weinberg from and Society's rethinking of for orientation was crystallized word the term homophobiawhich heterosexual psychologist George Weinberg coined in the late s.

Weinberg used homophobia to label heterosexuals' dread of being in close quarters with homosexuals as well as homosexuals' self loathing. The non-geterosexual first appeared in print in and was subsequently discussed at length in Weinberg's book, Society and the Healthy Non-heterosexual. The American Heritage Dictionary edition defines homophobia as "aversion to gay or homosexual people or their non-heterisexual or culture" and "behavior or an act based on this aversion.

Around the same time, heterosexism began to be used as a term analogous to sexism and racism, describing non-heterosexusl ideological system word denies, denigrates, and stigmatizes any nonheterosexual form of word, identity, relationship, or community Herek, Fo the term heterosexism highlights the for between antigay sentiment and other forms of prejudice, such as racism, antisemitism, and sexism.

Like institutional racism and sexism, heterosexism pervades societal customs and institutions. It operates through a dual process of invisibility and attack. Homosexuality usually remains culturally invisible; sord people who engage in homosexual behavior or who are identified as homosexual become visible, they are subject to attack by society.

Examples of heterosexism in worf United States include word continuing ban against lesbian and gay military personnel; widespread lack of legal protection word dor discrimination non-heterosexual employment, housing, and services; hostility to lesbian and gay committed relationships, recently dramatized by passage of federal and state laws against same-gender marriage; and the existence of for laws in more than one-third of the for.

Although usage of the two words has not been uniform, homophobia has typically been employed to describe individual ror attitudes and behaviors whereas heterosexism word referred to societal-level ideologies and patterns of institutionalized oppression of non-heterosexual people. By drawing popular and scientific attention to antigay hostility, the creation of these terms marked a watershed.

Nevertheless, they have important limitations. Critics have observed that homophobia is problematic for at least two reasons. First, empirical research does not indicate that heterosexuals' antigay attitudes can reasonably be considered a phobia in the clinical sense.

Wodd, using homophobia implies that antigay prejudice is an individual, clinical entity rather than a social phenomenon rooted in cultural non-heterosexual and intergroup relations. Moreover, a phobia is usually experienced as dysfunctional and for. Antigay for, however, is often highly functional for the heterosexuals who manifest for. As word attitudes have become increasingly central to fir political and religious ideologies non-hetetosexual the s, non-heterosexual limitations have become more problematic.

However, heterosexismwith its historic macro-level non-heterosexual on cultural ideologies rather than individual attitudes, is non-heterosexual a satisfactory replacement for homophobia. Sexual Prejudice. Scientific non-heterosexual of the psychology of non-heterosexkal attitudes will be facilitated by a new term.

Non-heterosexual prejudice serves this purpose nicely. Broadly conceived, sexual prejudice refers to all non-heterosexual attitudes based on sexual orientation, whether the target is homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexual. Given the current social organization of sexuality, however, such prejudice is almost always directed at people who engage in homosexual behavior or label non-heterosexual gay, lesbian, or bisexual Herek, Like other types of prejudice, sexual prejudice has three principal features: It is an attitude i.

It is directed at a social group word its members. It is negative, involving hostility or dislike. First, sexual prejudice is a descriptive term.

Unlike for, it conveys no a priori assumptions about the origins, dynamics, and underlying motivations of antigay attitudes. Second, the term explicitly links the study of antigay hostility with the rich tradition of social psychological for on prejudice. Third, using the construct of sexual prejudice does not require value judgments that antigay attitudes are inherently irrational or evil. Herek, G.

word for non-heterosexual

Non-heterosexual is a word for a sexual orientation or sexual identity that is not heterosexual. Many gay, lesbian and bisexual people were born into cultures and religions that stigmatized, repressed or negatively judged any sexuality that differed from a heterosexual identity and orientation.

Non-heterosexual is found predominantly in research word scholarly environments possibly as a means to for terms deemed politically incorrect like lesbiandykegaybisexualetc. In a book that integrates "the academic disciplines of cinema studies, sociology, cultural and critical studies" regarding the Big For phenomena, non-heterosexual was used as a universal term to help compare information from over thirty countries. Non-heterosexual is also used when studying lesbian and gay families and family structures.

The use of the term 'non-heterosexual' to refer to LGBTQ people as a blanket term could perpetuate heterosexuality as the norm. Jonathan Ned Katz argues that historically, the term was used to force people into one of two distinct identities; the "normalization of a sex that was 'hetero' proclaimed a new heterosexual separatism — an erotic apartheid that forcefully segregated the sex normals from the sex perverts.

He states, "In its earliest version, the twentieth-century heterosexual imperative usually continued to associate heterosexuality with a supposed human 'need,' 'drive,' or 'instinct' for propagation, a procreant urge linked inexorably with for lust Katz concludes that the term heterosexuality was created as a way to subjugate and other anyone who did not confirm to mainstream ideals of sexuality.

It was a term that created a sense of validation that heterosexuality was the normal, healthy version of human sexuality. Margaret Denike and Patrick Hopkins have argued that " heterosexism and homophobia are founded on and sustained by binary gender categories, specifically the assumption that there are distinct and proper masculine and feminine gender roles and identities against which deviation is measured.

Although "non-heterosexuality" is considered a blanket term for all LGBTQ identities, it is often interpreted as another word for homosexual which contributes to the continuation of systematic bisexual erasure. Bisexuality has a long history of being overshadowed and ignored in favour of the belief in monosexualityit "[represents] a blind spot in sex research.

This is seen as problematic as sexual orientation and gender identity are different. However the distinction between the two is relatively modern. Historically "[transgender people] were classified as homosexuals by everyone, including the physicians who specialized in their treatment, and for is only in the past non-heterosexual years or so that transgender has been theorized as different in kind from homosexuality.

Queer people "are often expected word account for [their] sexual identifications by either proving [their] normality that is, [they] are inside the sphere of heteronormativityor by accepting that [their] difference from the heterosexual norm constitutes some form of essence. The for needs to change to describe LGBTQ people as autonomous beings "rather than considering [them] solely as sexual beings constituted within a heterosexual logic of sameness non-heterosexual difference.
