It can take the form of denial that bisexuality is a genuine sexual orientation, or of negative stereotypes about people who are bisexual such as the beliefs that they are promiscuous or Bisexual black white. People of any sexual orientation can experience or perpetuate biphobia.
Biphobia is a portmanteau word patterned on the term homophobia. It derives from the English neo-classical prefix bi- meaning "two" from bisexual and the root -phobia from the Greek: Along with transphobia and homophobiait is one of a family of terms used to describe intolerance and discrimination against LGBT people.

Its meaning and use typically parallel those of xenophobia. Biphobia can lead people to deny that bisexuality is "real", asserting that people who identify as bisexual are not genuinely bisexual, or that the phenomenon is far less common than they claim.
