Altererotism

n. Discrimination or prejudice on the basis of sexual orientation

It has come to our attention that there is not really a term for this (or at least we couldn’t find one) and we feel this is a problem. 

In terms of sexual orientations, there are often terms with the root “phobia’, e.g homophobia. However these are specific to a particular sexual orientation, and describe fear, rather than actions taken and judgements made, such that discrimination and prejudice cover.

Therefore we feel it is important that such a word as altererotism exists. 

Altererotism has been formed from Latin root words: alter meaning “other”, erot meaning “sexual love”, which combines to mean “other sexual loves.” 

The -ism suffix has been taken to mean “ideologies expressing belief in the superiority of a certain class within the concept expressed by the root word, or a pattern of behavior or a social norm that benefits members of the group indicated by the root word” (Wikitionary, 2014), such as racism or sexism. 

Combined, they form a word that indicates the idea of discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Israel Destroys Entire Gaza Neighborhood In An Hour

July 29th, 2014

An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.

Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.

After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.

Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.
