"Homophobic people may use mean language and name-calling when they talk about lesbian and gay people. Biphobic people may tell bisexual people that it’s “just for attention,” or that they’re inherently cheaters. In its most extreme forms, homophobia and biphobia can cause people to bully, abuse, and inflict violence on lesbian, gay, and bisexual people."
Have you experienced behaviour similar to this?
I did learn half of my mean language by listening to people expressing themselves for how they feel when they know I'm a lesbian. Some people are very hateful and go to the extremes just shy of direct violence. Some have perfect verbal violence at hand. I have been called a jewish slut worth to be burnt by an elderly woman, I have been called a genetically monster. I have been called fuel for hell. But the most cruel acts of hate were always when they attacked my girlfriend. On the larger scale of violence by society the methods a society uses and treats it's outsiders and lets them know they are scum and dirt is to make you vulnerable in public, at day and night. That you rightfully are a victim. That you are only entitled to fear.
