Cisphobia is not a thing. Heterophobia is not a thing.

An individual may be suspicious, wary or prejudiced against people they perceive or know to be cis / straight.

But to call that -phobia is to equate them with the very real and potentially lethal transphobia and homophobia, both of which are forms of systematic oppression, something a single individual does not—cannot—do when it is against the status quo.

If you're being treated with needless hostility just because you're perceived as cis / straight, you're being treated with needless hostility. You're not being oppressed.
