'sexualism' vs 'heterosexism'
See text and discussion at heterosexism. Note the term 'heterosexism' is not linguistically parallel to 'racism' and 'sexism'; 'heterosexism' literally means A descriminatory bias based on a belief that one form of heterosexuality is better/preferrable to other forms of heterosexuality. 'Sexualism' means A descriminatory bias based on a belief that one form of sexuality is better/preferrable to other forms of sexuality. - Serge Dupouy 10:52, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
The way this article is written is as the only for of sexualism is against gay people, this seems to be akin to an article on racism focusing only on prejudice against black people, if I'm wrong, please show me the error in my ways. Loggerisms 03:17, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Sources for definition of "sexualism"?
Refs. 4 to 9 relate to the second sense of the word "sexualism" ("sexuality itself").
A careful reading of the page shows that the first sense of "sexualism" ("discrimination based on sexuality"), is a neologism that is not attributed to any of the page's references. Ref. 1 refers to "sexual prejudice", Refs. 2 and 3 to "heterosexism". The content of Refs 1 and 2 can be searched on Amazon; Ref 3 is available in PDF form and can be searched; none of these includes the word "sexualism".
