    • 1986, David Grambs, Dimboxes, Epopts, and Other Quidams: Words to Describe Life’s Indescribable People, Workman Publishing Company, unmarked page:
      Genophobes have been informed about the birds and the bees, but they don’t like (or aren’t cocksure about) what they’ve heard and tend to go catatonic when beyond the platonic.
    • 1996 July 16, Gary Goodman, "Re: Riefenstahl film on PBS", alt.censorship, Usenet:
      Like what happens when the genophobes try to censor video rental stores. THEN people get outraged. And say fuck off.

      I do think that genophobes like "Anna", and misanthropes like "Zee" are in the minority, zealots who decry any form of sexual expression that is not behind a locked door with the lights out and the covers pulled all the way up.
