Words That Are Biphobic, and Why

Yesterday, I shared a poster about words that are transphobic, and why they are transphobic (http://aquakerwitch.blogspot.com/2012/08/words-that-are-transphobic-and-why.html). 

The same organization that produced that poster, the UC Davis Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center, also has this wonderful poster, "Words That Are Biphobic and Why," available at http://lgbtcenter.ucdavis.edu/lgbt-education/words-that-are-biphobic-and-why

Biphobia and discrimination against bisexual people are real, folks, and cause real harm. 

I encourage you to challenge these words and phrases when you hear them -- whether you hear yourself saying them, or someone else saying them.
