Hey! I was thinking today and thought about how the word “Homophobia” is misleading and isn’t very representing of the LGBTQIA+. People who are homophobic are able to get away with homophobia by saying “I’m not afraid of gay people.” therefore implying that doesn’t mean they’re homophobic. I saw someone on TikTok say that we should change homophobia and transphobia to ism words, so that’s when I thought of the word “Orientism” with my friend James. Orientism would be more inclusive because not every sexuality is liking the same sex/gender and it would also include Gender orientations. The definition we have come up with is "Prejudice or discrimination against a person or persons affiliated with the LGBTQ+ community with harmful or malicious intent." We think this could be a large step for the LGBTQIA+ on inclusivity and being able to point acts of injustice and harassment. Please sign this petition so that we can get people to recognized that this is an issue worth fighting for.
