Technically, homosexism is analogous to hetrosexism. Homosexism would exist when homosexuals are given preference, opportunities and privileges over other sexual orientations. Real life situations where this might actually occur are not common.

In common usage, homosexism is a term often used by people who are prejudiced against gay people, opposed to gay equality rights, hold outdated stereotyped ideas about gay people, or in some way have issues with gay people.

They attempt to use "homosexism" as an accusatory deflection when called out on their false stereotypes and bigotry. The logic is often nonsensical but elaborately constructed.
When confronted with his bigotry regarding the Pride Parade, the Trustee countered with accusations that he was a victim of homosexism, a word he basically made up.

Term used by a Toronto school board trustee to refer to the heterophobia of the LGBT community and its members perverse behavior at the Toronto gay parade. Not to be confused with regular LGBT people who otherwise don't cram their sexuality down people's throats. The trustee was attacked by extremists on Twitter who labelled him as a homophobe despite his support for gay rights.

Contrary to the assertions of anti-religious bigots and some gay extremists, heterophobia is a real thing just like homophobia and biphobia. Anyone who has a dislike of straight people is exhibiting heterophobia.
Homosexism is actually the correct term for homophobia as "homophobia" is not a psychiatric condition or a phobia but rather a general dislike of gays. Homophobia would actually be a literal fear of gays and is probably non-existent asides from a few rare cases. Real homophobes would avoid anyone who is gay out of fear.

Discrimination or prejudice against straight men or women by Gay, Lesbian,Transgender or Bisexual people.
homosexism is the subtle yet open discrimination or unfriendly comments made towards or about members of the straight community. They may seem harmless when made but can and do still have a negative effect on the people they are made about such as referring to straight people or couples in a derogatory ways like calling them "breeders" or making comments referring to having children as being gross etc.
