This came up yesterday on another account and I'm curious to know what the numbers look like. :)

Those of you with phobias, how do you feel about words like transphobia, homophobia, etc. to describe bigoted attitudes/acts?

Boosts are helpful to get many diverse responses!


@cassolotl I'm not necessarily fully against it, and I often use those terms myself, simply because they're the most widely known and intuitive words I know to describe those things.

But with that said, I would ideally like to eliminate them from my vocabulary at some point. It's not a *huge* priority, but I do dislike the way that they conflate bigotry with fear, and I think ideally we would use other terms.
