What is the most specific way to describe somebody prejudiced against non-binary individuals?

For context on what I'm looking for:

  • A person who hates somebody because of their race, is racist
  • A person who hates somebody because they are transgender, is transphobic
  • A person who hates somebody because they are homosexual, is homophobic
  • A person who hates somebody because they are non-binary, is (?)

    What on earth is a binary individual? – user02814 Apr 9 at 10:46

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genderqueer - "non-binary, is a catch-all category for gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine‍—‌identities which are outside the gender binary and cisnormativity" – Bilkokuya Apr 9 at 10:59

Do you specifically mean someone who is prejudiced against non-binary individuals but not against trans women or trans men? If your readers know the term "enby" for "non-binary", then you could try "enbyphobe".

This prejudice is a specific form of transphobia, in that non-binary people count as trans, because everyone was assigned either male or female at birth, so identifying as non-binary entails transitioning. Transitioning doesn't just cover transitioning from male to female or female to male -- it also covers non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, third gender etc..

    Thanks very much. From your question; does that mean transphobia considered the catch-all, for transgender and non-binary; if so - please also include that, that's a perfectly valid answer too. Thanks very much for the "enbyphobe" answer too. The main reason for asking was having seen this behaviour, but not having any succinct way to describe it (and being wary of using the wrong term). – Bilkokuya Apr 9 at 11:15

    Thanks! Exactly the kind of thing I was after. Can you add that bit into the answer for completeness? – Bilkokuya Apr 9 at 12:07

    Downvoter, please could you explain? Have I misrepresented non-binary people? – Rosie F Apr 9 at 15:03
